So enough of my rambling. What's blooming this month in my garden? A lot. So much that I'm not going to even bother to rearrange these photos from the alphabetical way that blogger uploaded them. Unless there's a really frightening color clash somewhere along the line. We'll start with Abutilon 'Nuabtang' Lucky Lantern Tangerine, from the back.
Because every photo I took from the front was out of focus.
Abutilon megapotamicum 'Red', which actually reads as orange. Which is a good thing.
Alstroemeria isabellana. I love this crazy plant as much (maybe more) than the day I punched my friends in the face at Joy Creek nursery so I could grab it before they did. I'm only kind of kidding. Seriously.
Anigozanthos 'Amber Velvet'. I went a little overboard with three plants this year.
More Canna 'Australia' flowers, still in the garden and upright! Unlike these that I wrote about earlier in the week.
Cerinthe major ‘Purpurascens’
Colutea x media whose flowers don't look anything like the ones pictured on the nursery site. The ones that pushed me into buying this plant.
Dykia choristaminea 'Frazzle Dazzle', I know - it's a silly photo (looking straight down on the plant from the top)...
And we're into the Eryngiums, I've got several. First up is E. agavifolium.
A close up.
Eryngium pandanifolium var. lasseauxii
And lastly Eryngium yuccifolium, aka Rattlesnake Master
And the Grevilleas! G. 'Austraflora Fanfare'
Grevillea 'Neil Bell' (which is the Energizer Bunny of Grevilleas, it just keeps on blooming).
Grevillea ‘Poorinda Leane’
Hesperaloe parviflora, the cause of more than a few territorial hummingbird battles.
Hibiscus syriacus 'Red Heart'
Lobelia laxiflora var. angustifolia
Kniphofia 'Mango Popsicle'
Lysimachia paridiformis var. stenophylla, looks like there's a critter that has been enjoying the foliage.
Macleaya cordata, just a leaf. Because I wanted to share how huge they are this year. Not that you can really tell from this image I suppose.
Macleaya cordata, tall bloom. With pollinator just for fun.
New to my garden,
More than once I've seen a wasp land on it's leaves to get a drink and then be started as they start to fold up.
Paris polyphylla - Heronswood form. I included this last month but what the heck, it's that good.
Sadly I never manage to track the names of my Sempervivum. I do love that this one is blooming creamy...
Rather than the more typical pink.
Tradescantia pallida 'Purple Heart'...very hard to get a photo of those little flowers.
Verbascum bombyciferum 'Arctic Summer', battling with the Tetrapanax for height supremacy.
And finally, Lilium 'Stargazer' - or as I like to call them, my birthday lilies. Some previous gardener here planted them. They bloom every year on my birthday, well, except for this year when they're early. They always get cut and brought inside where I can enjoy their scent. Please visit our hostess May Dreams Gardens to see what blooms other bloggers are sharing this month!
