Summer dormancy

Perennials and trees don't only go dormant in the winter months. Some of our favorite plants might wilt and die back this July or August. Don't worry! Remove the dead foliage for a clean look in the garden and they'll come roaring back to life when night temperatures begin to cool: 

purple oxalis

acanthus mollis
