Another 15th of the month, another Garden Bloggers Bloomday. I tried to not be repetitive this month. For example Abutilon megapotamicum 'Red' is here to let you know that all the Abutilons I shared last month are still blooming their hearts out.
Ditto for the Kangaroo Paw — Anigozanthos 'Amber Velvet' is here to represent.
Yes I've shared my Zinnea ‘Benary’s Giant Lime’ previously, but darn it this particular bloom was the image of perfection, thus here it is...
Last month this hybrid Neoregelia cultivar was just starting to bloom, this month there are actually little flowers in there.
I keep hoping I'll spot a frog too, it happens!
Canna 'Cleopatra' isn't currently sporting any of her blooms that are split into two different colors, but at least there are yellow and red both...just to show you the possibilities.
Canna 'Durban' is my favorite bloom color.
But Canna ‘Australia’ has got that fabulous foliage!
Clematis tibetana var. vernayi is starting to bloom. I swear it's coming out this winter...
Whenever the Dyckia choristaminea 'Frazzle Dazzle' decides to put up blooms they always look crispy and dead. Not the case! They will erupt in yellow flower soon.
These Grevillea 'Ivanhoe' flowers are much better than the last round, which were a sickly powder-puff pink.
Grevillea 'Ned Kelly' (so pretty!)
Grevillea 'Peaches and Cream' (ditto)
Hedychium coccineum 'Tara' — the groundcover version...
Seriously though...my Grevillea ‘Poorinda Leane’ just up and died (that's the second summer with a sudden Grevillea death, last year it was G. 'Neil Bell') and when I cut it out I realized (too late) it was supporting this ginger stalk. Oh well, at least this way the flowers are easy to see...
Leonotis leonurus just starting to open. I am expecting (hoping for) great things from this plant.
Magnolia laevifolia — not a flower — but wow! The seeds on this guy are so decorative.
Mahonia gracilipes, I failed to get a good close up.
Melianthus major 'Antonow's Blue' — also past it's floral stage but still intriguing.
Nicotiana alata ‘Lime Green’ — I am praying this guy seeds himself (herself?) around.
NOID Kniphofia, this plant a division from a great performer in my mom's garden. After several years her plant failed to return this spring. I was able to give her a piece from my plant to replace it. The circle of gardening complete.
Passiflora incarnata past it's prime.
Passiflora incarnata, the next stage.
Over in the Aralia-lands....Schefflera brevipedunculata
Just a couple more...
I picked up this annual because the arrangement of it's purple (yes, they are purple — not blue) flowers was quite lovely. Of course I can't remember it's name. UPDATE: Scaevola cv. (fan flower) (thanks to Mr. S)
Nymphaea 'Joey Tomocik'
And to wrap it all up Hesperaloe parviflora. Thanks for the Bloomday inspiration every 15th of the month Carol! (May Dreams Gardens)
