Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day June 2014

Arisaema candidissimum

Well, it’s late but I thought it would still be worthwhile for Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day to catch up on some of the interesting flowers still appearing.  We’ve had a wonderfully extended spring.  There is been regular and prodigious rainfall with no really serious heat waves.  The peas and lettuce have yielded wonderfully.

And the flowers have responded similarly.  There are roses and lilies all about the yard with some very special Iris making their impact as well.

There rainfall has been also good for the the pitcher plant which is a long way from the bog that it would like to live in.

I noticed that the Ninebark has an almost flower -like seed head.

and the Tritelia are making a nice little stand in the garden after several years.

A very unusual Lysimachia is in the shade garden by the garage.

This was obtained from Far Reaches and looks to be a winner.  Even if it never flowered the foliages itself would be interesting.  But now the clustered yellow flowers are starting to appear as well.

In the large trough we have a very small potentilla relative that has complex little yellow flowers.

And nearby, in the Alpine bed, is a wonderful Edraianthus.

So, what is growing in your garden…

    Gorgeous Arisaema.
    You’ve reminded me that I have some Triteleia laxa ‘Queen Fabiola’ bulbs and I’ve forgotten to plant them! I shall do it anyway and hope they’ve forgiven me by next year.
    Your photographs are stunning, as always.

    They are all lovely but that arisaema looks real special, the color is so beautiful.
