I've been so busy working on our new land that I have forgotten about my first love-Tiger Gardens. It's a good thing Tiger Gardens hasn't forgotten me. Like all springs in the garden the flowers just keep on coming and are most forgiving of the gardener when she is not around.
Without further ado let me introduce to you a WONDERFUL type of bearded iris called Standard Dwarf Bearded (SDB) iris. I have five colors and can't get enough of them. They are most floriferous and don't need to be divided as often as the bearded irises. These irises look good most of the year.
Dogtooth violets, Erythromium 'Pagoda' are wonderful woodland plant!
Another SDB (a gift from my garden friend Helga).
Snowflakes, aka Leucojum aestivum.
Old Fashioned bleeding hearts.
Trilliums in my woodland garden are a reminder of the forest I love so much. This is Trillium cuneatum surrounded by white petals from 'Nuccio's Gem' camelia that rises above the trilliums.
More SDBs. The only color missing from the line up in today's post is a light blue. That one blooms a bit later than these other colors (white with purple, purple with dark purple, peach, and dark purple)-I do know the names but they escape me for the moment-sorry!
Candytuft, aka Iberis sempervirens is a wonderful evergreen perennial that does well in a raised bed in part shade to sun.
Pieris japonical along with its pals the aucubas are happy in the front center garden.
Late blooming daffodils keep me busy enjoying their fragrance and their beauty.
This garden is a garden I feast my eyes upon all day long as it is in the frontyard. The peach irises are more STBs. They make a good match with 'Caramel' heuchera.
Finally, Viburnum 'Mohawk' is a delight....
