June in Bloom -Garden Bloggers Bloom Day
June is shaping up nicely here ,with only one day so far of over 90 degree heat and our June Gloom morning overcast shows up most mornings.. makes for fine gardening weather.
Lilies...the pink was carefully labeled and said label has faded into illegibility. Time to peruse the Lily Garden catalog and see if I can retrieve the ID. The melon-y number is Copper Crown .
This variegated Lantana is slowly reverting; it has frozen down to the ground several years in a row.
Digiplexis 'Illumination Flame' has become a grove of nicely branched plants.
Drumstick Allium --Allium sphaerocephalon.
Eucomis 'Sparkling Burgundy'
Poor floppy Sideritis cypria . Needs more sun, so a move may be on the agenda for fall.
Fuchsia 'Winston Churchill'..
The damn Daylilies are peaking now-what's left of them. I have edited down to 11 varieties , with a couple others on the hit list. This is another missing tag victim .
Moonlit Masquerade , an outstanding performer for many years.
Mail order Daylily houses are generous with their freebies- this was gifted with the last order I placed a few years ago. I have no tag , and don't recall if it even came with one.
Clematis Rooguchi, inflicted with mildew this year. I rarely see mildew in summer here, even on roses, but this year it has struck roses and others less likely victims.
Sanguisorba 'Chocolate Tips'
Group shot with Tuecrium 'Purple Tails' in the foreground and a couple Lavenders in the distance.
Sanguisorba 'Tanna' , similar to 'Chocolate Tips' but smaller .
The thug-ish Phygelius 'Moonraker' . Keeping after it is key.
