I'm a blogging rebel; Garden Blogger's Bloomday isn't until tomorrow, June 15th, but I'm posting today. What can I say...
July is usually yucca month in my garden, but the warmth this week is pushing them ahead, I took these photos a couple days ago and they've progressed beyond this stage, they may not hold on until July's bloomday. Here's Y. 'Color Guard'...
And plain old Y. filamentosa.
The yellow button blooms of Santolina chamaecyparissus echo the Callistemon sieberi flowers behind.
The blue of Parahebe perfoliata always catches me by surprise.
There are three large, woolly, verbascum sending up bloomspikes in the front garden. I think this one is V. olympicum, although I'm not sure as they're all offspring from plants that bloomed long ago.
There are going to be so many Acca sellowiana (pineapple guava) flowers this year!
Moving into the back garden...just one flower is open on the Clematis recta 'Purpurea Select'.
Callistemon viridiflorus, I love this yellow/green color, and there are so many flowers on the plant this year.
Lomatia tinctoria, resting on a nearby Yucca aloifolia.
NOID Saxifraga (so many Saxifraga flowers this year...).
Magnolia macrophylla, and photos can be deceiving, these flowers are more than 20" across.
Abutilon megapotamicum 'Paisley'
Grevillea juniperina ‘Molonglo’
Paris polyphylla - Heronswood form
Alchemilla mollis, at the bottom edge of the photo. I liked all these shapes and shades and thought this photo was more interesting than including just a close-up.
Clematis repens 'Bells of Emei Shan'
Thalictrum 'Evening Star'
All the other podophyllum have finished blooming, but P. 'Spotty Dotty' is still going.
A white sarracenia flower with a trio of Darlingtonia californica.
And the Darlingtonia are making seeds!
A survey of other sarracenia...
Alstroemeria 'Indian Summer'
Bougainvillea 'Moneth' (aka 'Purple Queen')
Iris x robusta ‘Gerald Darby’, in/over the stock tank pond.
And finally the bright and wonderful Grevillea 'Ned Kelly', which is growing in a container. For more Bloomday fun visit our hostess May Dreams Gardens.
