The Lilies have given me much pleasure this year and my list of new additions for 2017 continues to expand. This is 'Black Beauty' with the darker 'Aprilla' in the background-they have developed a symbiotic leaning relationship this summer.
Yes, yes Lobelia tupa !
I am feeling rather triumphant that Hydrangea 'Pee Gee' is not flopping this year, though it has more to do with a tree death in a neighbors yard than it does with my gardening skill.
Eryngium 'Jos Eijking', just starting to blue up.
Salvia 'Wendys Wish ', always reliable. Some years she winters over and some years not.
The outstanding Clematis 'Arabella', blooms all summer.
Unnamed Eucomis. Who needs a name ?
I thought this white Lantana was done for after last winter, but I left the skeleton intact and in May I saw signs of growth. It's still small but at least I can develop a better protection plan for next winter, and perhaps the plant will have gained stamina.
Bouteloua gracillis 'Blonde Ambition' .
'Blonde Ambitions' next door neighbor Agastache 'Purple Haze'. Both hellstrip residents.
More hellstrip action, Salvia 'East Freisland' with a culinary Oregano.
My faux meadow where many plants bloom cheek by jowl, including Gomphrena 'Fireworks', Echinacea 'Ferris Wheel' more A. 'Purple Haze' , Anigozanthos and Eryngium .
Happy Bloom Day to all, and may we someday live in a world where everyone is a gardener.
