I will not publish pictures of all blooming flowers, but will mention that all pictures I published last month are still blooming with the exception of: gaura, clematis, santolina, Easter lillies, heucheras, drumstick alliums (the blooms are everlasting), goldenrod, butterfly weed, Queen Ann's Lace (removed prior to finishing bloom), yuccas, yarrow (blooms are everlasting), feverfew, most bee balm, pink astilbe, penstemon, spireas,
Buddleia davidii 'Black Knight'....
Pink glads I cannot get rid of!
Unknown daylily. Many, colors are blooming. Mostly yellows and oranges, with a couple of peach and mauve ones thrown in.
Unknown flower. Probably some type of blanket flower.
Eggplant bloom showing the holes from the flea beetles. Eggplants are really not worth growing if you ask me. I don't grow them each year, but this year I thought I'd put one in. It was not worth it.
Onion bloom... It looks just like last month's Elephant Garlic bloom doesn't it?
Crocosmia and orange cosmos. I love both of these and so do the butterflies. They coincidentally grow in the butterfly/bird garden.
More crocosmia. Isn't it great? 'Midnight Duchess' hydrangea macrophylla. A new purchase. I am on a hydrangea collecting kick lately. This was a markdown purchase at Wal-Mart.
Canna. I have many varieties of these, all growing together in this sunny area next to the veggie garden.
'Pink Diamond' hydrangea. Similar to Tardiva; which blooms a bit later. In the paniculata family and my second favorite type of hydrangeas after the oakleafs.
A variegated hydrangea I started from cuttings two years ago. I have three that are blooming. The bloom of this hydrangea is a rare sight in my garden, but I like the hydrangea just for the foliage.
Also blooming but not pictured: begonias, yellow potentilla, balloon flowers, hostas, Cimicifuga racemosa, melampodium, dahlias, brown eyes, rose campion, veronica, sedum, 'Summer Snowflake' viburnum, coneflowers, Rose of Sharon, Natchez crepe myrtle, mums, salvias, beautyberry, oregano, shastas (going by), and cleyera.
I hope you have many things blooming in your garden this month and every month!
in the garden....
