Remember the small native plant garden that I installed in the neighbor's yard at the San Pedro Annex? It's shown below after install on Sunday 5/18.
I had the misfortune of installing it right before a series of unprecedented hot days and the plants suffered for it. I thought that I would be replacing many plants, but it turned out that at least the Encelia (Brittlebush, goldenhills, incienso) have made a recovery. I think it helped that I clipped the branches back about 1/3rd, though not soon enough to prevent loss of nearly all their leaves.
The recovery was first evident to me on 5/24 with the releafing shown below:
6/8 even more growth:
I wasn't so fortunate with the strawberries (Fragaria) and was forced to replace all but one. Still, I felt fortunate and I'm surprised by the strong recovery of the Encelia.
