It's July Bloomday! Let's take a look at what's blooming in my garden.
Lysimachia paridiformis var. stenophylla, an under-appreciated beauty.
I couldn't get a decent photo of the Echeveria 'Arrow Setosa' bloom, oh well. The spike is coming from that slightly fuzzy plant in the lower left hand corner.
Passiflora 'Amethyst Jewel' wintered over and is hell-bent on taking over a corner of the back garden. I love it.
Mammillaria spinosissima 'Red-Headed Irishman'
My Acanthus mollis put out the shortest little bloom spike...
Clematis 'Bells of Emei Shan'
The Hibiscus syriacus 'Red Heart' blooming is underway, there are so many flowers and buds on this plant...
Abutilon megapotamicum 'Paisley'
Moluccella laevis, aka Bells of Ireland, which I never got around to sowing seeds of this year, luckily some of last year's plants did the deed for me.
The actual flowers.
Dyckia 'Nickel Silver', which was a recent gift...I love it.
Dyckia 'Nickel Silver' flower, close up
I had a couple of Aloe aristata bloom this year, at this point they're past their prime.
Grevillea x gaudichaudii
And again, just so you can see the colorful new foliage.
Sempervivum NOID, which is leaning precariously into the driveway and I am afraid is going to get broken.
Another Sempervivum NOID
Santolina chamaecyparissus 'Lemon Queen'
Another, bonus photo, just becasue.
Callistemon ‘Woodlander's Hardy Red’
I think this is Verbascum olympicum, a seedling of a long ago plant.
Another verbascum that seeded itself out in the middle of a callistemon.
And finally, the flower of July...
Yucca filamentosa and Y. filamentosa 'Color Guard'
