Garden Bloggers Bloomday July 2020
This month features the Lilies. I have already ordered more for fall planting. The benefit with lilies is that you can dig a hole about the size of a potholder and install 3 bulbs and get big drama .
Other stuff is going on, not just the lilies. I've had these Eucomis several years and they've been moved a few times. No idea what they are but they are still enjoyed.
Pennisetum 'Red Bunny Tails'
Eryngium 'Blaukappe' with Angelica stricta purperea
Sanguisorba 'Pink Tanna'
Panicum 'Heavy Metal'
Ramping up the Dahlias. I am having good luck with the collarettes. This is 'Bee Happy' . I'll be planting a second one next spring.
This is a bedding Dahlia called 'Black City Lights' that I found at a garden center in a 4" pot. I'm going to dig it in fall and try to make some new plants. The foliage is fantastic-you can see it in the background.
Scabiosa atropurpurea 'Black' .Need more of these for cutting.
I've been looking for this double Feverfew for a few years. I'm not surprised to have found it at Annies. I hope it seeds true. Wonderful filler for arrangements.
Eryngium bourgatii, Gloves are needed.
Lobelia tupa. I'm having irrigation issues this summer and plan to make changes in fall.
The extremely cute Zinnia 'Jazzy Mix' from Select Seeds.
