The date is wrong on the thermometer, should be 7/11 & 7/12
And yes this is in the shade, but within the south-side of the house micro climate.
Purple horse mint
A plant I love, "mojave sage" salvia pachyphylla
This should be the plant to replace "russian sage" with. Rabbits hate it and hummingbirds love it!
And more pics of the Y. elata in bloom.
