Bee Balm...This is my second year growing Bee Balm, I think that they look like old-lady swim caps, LOVE them!
Last year this Acanthus had 7 bloom spikes, just one this year.I bought this Agapanthus not knowing the color (it had already bloomed but was only $2), love the deep blue.
And not to be outdone, the white.
The Agavafolium just keeps producing more and more buds, usually the bees are all over them. Of course I go out with my camera and they all split.
The Black Mondo grass is blooming, I don’t care for the flowers but the berries that follow are wonderful, and the birds enjoy them too.
The Eryngium Blue hobbit is living up to its name.We spied the Dichromena colorata, White Star Grass at the grocery store one night when just making a quick dinner stop. Had to have it. These little flowers are at the end of some of the grass looking stems amongst the grass blades.The Echinops is starting to flower! Love it. The stems have not started to turn red yet, although I still have hope.
And the Eryngium pandandifolium is blooming on such a tall stalk I had to tie it up.
I already talked about the Hydrangea in a post last week but it’s so hot right now that it bears repeating.Normally I hate the flowers of my Ligularia ‘ rocket’ for some reason this year I am enjoying them. We’ll see how long it lasts. The Lupines are still going strong.
The Nicotiana looks like a flower that would be pollinated by a hummingbird but I haven’t seen any go near it. Love the big leaves.
The Scadoxus multiflorus hasn’t slowed down after almost 3 months in bloom.
All over the garden the Sempervivum are in bloom. While they are amazing and somewhat alien looking it is also a little sad as they are monocarpic and will die after blooming.
Don’t like the Water Canna bloom at all but it’s so tall and stately at over 8 feet and the hummingbirds like it so it stays.
And lastly the Yuccas are all blooming in full force, over 12 of them in the front garden alone. They smell so good!
Happy Blomday everyone! Click on over to May Dreams Gardens to see what else is bloomin around the world today...
