And most appropriately named June Bug. The rest of them blooming now are fairly tame looking compared to all the fancy varieties available now. Am I showing my gardening age?? I love them all anyway.
Day lilies aren't the only things blooming right now of course.
I have several tall lilies in the garden. This one is Heartstrings. The rest of them look so worn from the drought that I won't picture them.
The Coneflowers are beginning to bloom.
This Papaya Coneflower is a new introduction to my garden this year and it is gorgeous. Even with the droughty weather it has been blooming.
The Oakleaf Hydrangeas are blooming. I don't know the names of them but they are also a plant that doesn't pay much attention to the weather. I wish I was more like them. This one has big ole blooms on it.
This one has more blooms but smaller.
The spiderworts are blooming up a storm.
Yuccas are blooming. I always think of them as one of my birthday flowers as it blooms near my birthday.
These lovely Calla Lily 'Golden Nugget' is blooming now. They are such cheerful bloomers and make great cut flowers. Then you have this poka dotted leaves to accent the flower bed. Amazing that these used to be considered annuals here. Now what with the global warming they survive our winters. At least so far.
The above Hibiscus is a tropical plant that my neighbor gave me when she was moving into a condo with no room for such a large plant/planter. I didn't really want the plant but the container came with it and I did want the container. After it started blooming I can see why she wanted it to perpetuate. It is a gorgeous bloom.
