especially Santolina, a Mediterranean native that can't get enough sun.
In the same bed, and of a completely different palette, Gooseneck loosestrife, Lysimachia clethroides, is in flower. No, it's not wilting. It's supposed to look like that. However, it is probably the recent heat and dryness that this year is keeping this native of eastern Asia in check. In wetter times it tends to run amok. It's an interesting plant, with a strobilating inflorescence, quite different from its Eurasian congener Lysimachia punctata, whose flowers appear in whorls associated with whorls of leaves along the top third of stems.
No pictures of the rest of the garden until after a bit of hydration. Again, plants, sorry. I didn't see it coming.
