Blooms for Tuesday

Now that it's summer, there are new blooms almost daily, and more and more are finishing up for the season.

The daylilies are providing lots of color.

The veronicas are doing well, too.

I know I've shown lots of milkweed blooms, but this is the first from the common milkweed.  The neighbors will appreciate it if I don't let these go to seed.

I pinched back most of the goldenrods, but may have forgotten some.  I'll have to check back to see if the first ones started blooming this early in the past.

 The stoke's asters are starting to bloom.

The daylilies I call, "Shopko" because that's where I got them are loaded with blooms, as usual.

 I included a few photos that show some plants that are blooming together.  The bright daylilies are 'Wally' that I fell in love with from someone's yard online, and found a place to order it and some others a few years ago.

I think this yarrow is 'Paprika'.

The drumstick alliums are showing color now.

The false sunflowers are at their best now.  Can you see the clematis growing on the lattice on the deck?  (Added 6/28/11: The scientific name is heliopsis helianthoides.)

I can't think of the name of this plant.  I showed it for foliage follow up, and now, it has cute yellow blooms.

I always enjoy the limoniums.  The blooms can be cut to dry, but they also last a long time on the plant.

The daylily on the left is in the same location my mother-in-law had it planted in when she was alive and lived here.  It was surrounded by grass, though, and not these other plants.

I'll have to see if I can find the tag for this new clematis that I planted last year.  This is its first bloom.

The name of the clematis on the other side of the arch trellis isn't coming to my brain right now, but I've put it in the blog in the past.  It sure is full of blooms!

 Here's the honeysuckle that's in front of the house.

  1. I love that color of yarrow! And I don't think I've ever seen false sunflower. All your flower are beautiful.

    Also...your veronicas...I think that's the flower I have that I was asking if anyone knew its name another week. It looks just like it. I'm glad to know. Thanks for posting that.

  2. I have to agree with Deb, that 'Paprika' Yarrow is gorgeous! And your False Sunflowers are nice too, especially with that glimpse of Clemmie in the back. :)

  3. I love the pink clematis: is is purpura plenans elegans? Just a guess...there are so many clematis and all are beautiful. I love your daylilies. Your gardens are just stunning! Love the yellow lab in your header photo too. I'm a dog lover. :-)

  4. That's lysimachia ciliata 'Firecracker' and it spreads like the dickens in my garden.

  5. What a gorgeous garden you have! So much color and so much variety!

  6. You have lots of Hemerocallis, I like them a lot and they grow well for me here in what I imagine are very different conditions to yours! Is the yellow daisy Innula? Christina

  7. Love the rosy pink clematis!

    The false sunflower also catches my eye. There must be a lot of things called "false sunflower" as I have something different that I refer to by that name.

  8. Sue your lilies are so pretty. I love the one beside the Alliums they go so well together.

  9. As usual, your yard is supreme! I love the daylilies. .mine are WAY behind because of the heat and drought. .despite frequent waterings. Keep up the great gardening!

  10. Things are a poppin now Sue. Your gardens are so full now. The clematis is stunning. Love the yarrow and the alliums.

  11. Your have a whole lot of bloomin' goin' on! Everything is lovely! Jean

  12. Your lovely garden is bursting out all over with glorious blooms. I especially loved your Daylilies.

  13. Hi again, Thanks for visiting me. Excuse my ignorance but I don't know what false sunflowers are, do you know the Latin name by any chance. Christina

  14. Thanks for the comments and names of the clematis and lysimachia. Ben, this spreads, but I keep pulling it from where I don't want it. I don't remember if I knew it was a loosestrife when I planted it. It was, of course, a passalong.

    My false sunflower is heliopsis helianthoides. Deadheading prolongs the bloom time. It does a bit of reseeding. Actually, the birds do it, I think, because the new plants come up in other parts of the yard. Maybe we've gotten some of the seeds in the compost pile. They do not come up thick like the morning glories we have all over the yard, and are easy to transplant or pull out.

  15. Your garden looks beautiful, so many flowers, great pics too.

  16. love your pictures look like all is going great come see me at

  17. I truly do enjoy your blog. You have so much going on all the time! All your hard work is giving you such great reward. I wish I had more plants like you have from your mother-in-law.

  18. You have the most unique garden I've visited so far.. it's so natural and it's full of flowers! I'm wishing for a veronica right now.. :)
