Such a heat wave, Todd! We have finally gotten into the 90's...and kinda enjoy it...

Been there and done that in New England, a number of spring days to the mid 90's F already, with a boat-load of days in the mid 80s or more... our season as a result is so advanced, I'm sure its a record breaker.

Thanks for the link!  Never saw this site..I now have it bookmarked.  Today actually hit 19.4 C..the warmest day so far this year...mind you it was pouring rain!

Hope it works for your place! It is fairly accurate for where I use it.

Gentlemen, you'll forgive me I hope, if I am less than enthusiatic to hear of your high temperatures.... I believe we may have hit the dizzy heights of 65 fahrenheit here in Aberdeen, Norht East Scotland----for an hour or two on a couple of days in the last few weeks---- but for the most part we get pleased if we make 55 at this time..... :(

Lovely photos of the Loiseleuria.... sometimes called the Trailing Azalea....... I LOVE this plant.....we have it in Scotland, too and it is one of our prettiest little plants, I think.

Yikes, I'm struggling to come up with red too right now!
1) This particular plant of Castilleja miniata is near-red...
2) Does maroon-red count?  How about Geranium phaeum 'Springtime'?

I am looking forward to see my Castillejas in bloom whether they are red or not! What do the cotyledons and first true leaves look like by the way?

I had Geranium phaeum 'Samobor' once but it has self sown in different colors. Can't say any of them are red - more brown and deep maroon.

Does Tropaeolum tricolor count? Not exactly in the Rock garden, but we do grow it outdoors and it's just started to flower - in the middle of winter.
cheers
