June is a month of abundance, everything it seems is in bloom. I was focused on editing my choices for this Bloomday post , and still have 15 photos. Thanks to our mistress of ceremonies , Carol over yonder at May Dreams Gardens who provides us with links to blooms across the globe on the 15th of each month.
Angelica stricta pupurea , taller than me -vertical drama. This is my best effort with these plants; I have been careful to give them water and I'm sure our winter of real live rain contributed to their success.
And speaking of success , I have been trying to produce a blooming Astrantia for several years..I am ridiculously pleased to have my first ever bloom. I finally found the right spot. The right spot is everything with plants that may be borderline for ones' zone-not a cold hardiness issue for me, but heat hardiness .
Anigozanthus, this one lives in a large container, next door to Elegia capensis.
Lily season is upon us , and I cleverly (well , accidentally) have managed to space out the Lily blooms so there is always one or two blooming. This one is 'Silver Angel', an upward facing trumpet Lily.
And one of the few Daylilies left here, this is' Calico Jack'
Sidertas cypria .
I am fatally attracted to yellow flowers , and this Echinacea is just the tone of yellow I love best, 'Ferris Wheel ' .
This is new to me this year, Teuchrium chamaedrys 'Summer Sunshine' a low growing edger.
Agastache 'Grapefruit Nectar' is blooming madly on the hell strip.
Teucrium 'Purple Tails' comports with a long lost label yellow Gaillardia.
First Eucomis bloom of the season.
My treasured un-named seedling Sanguisorba from Far Reaches Farm.
Rudbeckia 'Green Wizard'
The flowers have faded on my Phlomis, but I love what they leave behind .
And Sanguisorba 'Chocolate Tips' gets a swoony visit every day after work. I am besotted.
