Last month I trash-talked the bells of Ireland seeds I'd planted (Moluccella laevis), saying they were nothing but foliage. Patience, it's all about the patience. Bells have appeared!
Moving into the front garden, Grevillea rivularis...
Acca sellowiana, aka pineapple guava, the petals are edible and very very sweet.
There are many!
Santolina chamaecyparissus 'Lemon Queen'
Callistemon 'Woodlander's Hardy Red'
Grevillea x gaudichaudii
And now the back garden offerings, starting with a NOID sempervivum, one of many in flower around the garden.
Passiflora 'Snow Queen', which by the way I just read was considered to be "sweetly fragrant" — I get nothing. If you're going this one, what do you say?
Almost ready to open NOID crocosmia blooms...
Abutilon 'Nuabtang' aka 'Lucky Lantern Tangerine'
Lonicera x brownii 'Dropmore Scarlet'
A new one this month! (it seems much of this post was a repeat from last month) Hibiscus syriacus 'Red Heart'
I cannot remember if this is Eucomis 'Oakhurst' or 'Sparkling Burgundy', but it's pushing out a flower spike and that's all that matters.
NOID canna, in there somewhere...really!
Flower spikes from the NOID Echeveria.
Lysimachia paridiformis var. stenophylla
Aloiampelos striatula, formerly Aloe striatula
Passiflora 'Amethyst Jewel'
NOID sarracenia flowers
Thalictrum ichangense 'Evening Star'
Paris polyphylla ‘Heronswood Form’ will close out the catalogue of what's blooming here this month. Visit May Dreams Gardens for links to all the bloggers sharing their blooms.
