June 2011 Bloom Day

Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day (After)
What's blooming in the garden on the 15th of the month.

There is so much going on in the gardens, I needed an extra day to document it all, and ended up leaving some things out. The peony poppies are about pooped out while the yellow daylilies are coming on. A maroon daylily was handed out at a master gardener tour last year. Coneflowers are all over - purple, coconut lime, and a sundown series. Cleome is robust. Bachelor buttons are new for me this year and so are the yellow oriental lilies. Get a load of the production on the rudbeckia, nicotiana and cactus!

I'm v. jealous of your nicotiana sylvestris. Did you grow it from seed?

Does it reseed?

I was too overwhelmed by the possibilities to even participate this month.

all looks lovely.

Jane,
These annually reseed themselves, originally from sylvestris, although I don't think they are exactly sylvestris, which has more tubular flowers and is taller. Maybe these are a parent? But I like them just as much.

These plants have been blooming a while because they overwintered. The reseeded ones are just starting to bloom.

Larry,
Thank you. I am becoming more fond of lilies each year and hope to try some orientals.
