Here are some favorite pictures with some of the blooms in my US 5b hardiness zone garden.
|"Garden Pleasure" OrientPet Lily surrounded by Monarda or Bee Balm and Gooseneck Loosetrife|
In the back gardens, there is something in bloom in every border.
The path borders have coneflowers and baloon flowers on the sunny side
coreopsis, ligularia "The Rocket " on the shady side
|Astilbe possibly "Vissions in Red"|
The sunroom bed is looking "hot" with Crocosmia Lucifer in bloom surrounded by pink coneflowers and daisies
The saponaria officinalis escapes to be pulled out of this bed for one more year. Every year I say it has to go because it is floppy and I refuse to stake it..then I leave it to do its thing. The plant in the pot is a new plectranthus that I am trying this year (annual)
From the Asteracea family, we enjoy the long blooms of Echinacea, Daisies and Heliopsis
In the miscellaneous category we have some pretty and familiar perennial blooms:
|Queen of the prairie, Achillea "Saucy Reduction", Phlox paniculata "Barsixtytwo" and Clematis "Comtesse de Bouchaud"|
But where are the day lilies you say? No hemerocallis in this garden?
Here is a picture of the main daylily bed. Another dozen more are spread around the rest of the gardens.
Also last year I put together a nice collage of all the day lilies that I grow
Or if you think that was too well organized, here is the messy version of this year.
So this was another Garden Blogger's Bloom Day hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens. If you check-out Carol's post you will find links to many many other gardener's lovely gardens. Go check it out!
