15 Jul Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day – July 2010!
Time once again for Bloom day, and that means a trip outside with the camera, and a look at some wonderfully cheerful blossoms. Enjoy!
Ruffled Apricot daylily (Hemerocallis ‘Ruffled Apricot’) is an impressive re-bloomer, and it’s fragrant!
Prairie Coneflower (Ratibita pinnata) is an elegant native, frequently visited by our pollinators.
Mardi Gras Helen’s flower (Helenium ‘Mardi Gras’) Is a favorite of mine since first using it several years ago. Its blossoms are a blend of yellow, orange and red.
Floristan White Gayfeather (Liatris spicata ‘Floristan White’) sports a very pretty white spike atop very attractive foliage.
My favorite of all the new Echinacea introductions, is Red Knee High (Echinacea purpurea ‘Red Knee High’). Its compact habit and deep magenta blossoms make it a welcome addition in our garden!
Another new and welcome introduction, is Katherine Phlox (Phlox paniculata ‘Katherine’). Highly resistant to powdery mildew, long blooming and a beautiful lavender blossom with a white eye. We will be enjoying this one for years to come!
Thunder and Lightning Knautia (Knautia macedonica ‘Thunder and Lightning) is an amazing color combo. Deep magenta pin cushions over green and cream variegated foliage. WOW!
Deep red with a yellow throat, Chicago Apache daylily (Hemerocallis ‘Chicago Apache’) is visible from all over the yard!
