Once I realized that the hibiscus and hosta were duking it out, I stepped in and declared a winner. I dug out the pink hibiscus and repositioned both it and it's mate's supports more appropriately, moving the one crowding the hosta to the middle of the bed and turning both parallel to the wall. I still wanted something tall there so planted 3 cups of my WS'd hollyhocks. I figure the hollyhocks will bloom earlier and be done before the remaining hibiscus comes into its own.
Now the Bressingham blue's size can be really showcased. When I was done I enjoyed a tall glass of iced tea and admired the new look of the bed. And, apparently, so did this little girl.
Good grief, that's a big plant! What next under there? A tea party? :-D
