This is my one and only Eucomis bloom for 2010. I’m really sad that the E. Oakhurst haven’t bloomed this year, but I'm trying to focus on the positive and how beautiful this one is.
Kniphofia caulescens …two different plants, two slightly different blooms.
The front garden Canna’s, which I thought I had lost due to the cold winter temps.
They are considerably smaller than last year but they’ve come back…and that is all that matters.
A couple of other front garden plants have made a reblooming appearance this month. One of the Ceanothus decided to bloom again…
And the Opuntia has produced a second blossom.
I really thought (hoped) the Tillandsia would be blooming come this September bloomday. No such luck. It is escaping from it's cage though.
Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’
The bees love it…
Thus I love it.
Hibiscus syriacus 'Red Heart'
Eventual Height: 10-15' and Spread: 6-10'
This Canna bloom has been pulling in the hummingbirds. I don’t understand why this particular one is so much more attractive than the others but I am enjoying the show.
Chasmanthium latifolium, or Northern Sea Oats. I love this grass and have 4 plants. You would think I could have got a better photo than this one.
Sedum 'Vera Jameson'…I’ve heard the hummingbirds love this one too, but due to the large quantity of neighborhood cats I think they are too smart to go so close to the ground.
I’m so glad I bought this $3 'Cardinal Climber' Ipomoea multifida…it‘s been non-stop flowers…and I love the fabulous leaves.
A lonely Sempervivum bloom.
And yes…speaking on non-stop, here is the Kangaroo Paw, again. The best $11.99 I spent this spring.
