From Cheryl’s Garden: The Gardens are Alive with Blooms!
May 21, 2012 By Leave a Comment
Lots of blooming plants to share with you this week. So far I have seven orange poppies and there looks like there will be many more! I started out with a few plants and now they have multiplied to over 12 in a very small space. I guess I will have to share some with friends soon.
The tiny cotoneaster flowers are adding color to the front garden beds.
The plant has been moved several times and is now liking its new home. The beautiful variegated foliage highlights the shaded garden. I have three of them planted in front of some large rocks. This Lamiastrum galeobdolon ‘Herman’s Pride’ – Archangel get about 8-12″ tall.
This poplar salvia has dark purple flower spikes now and will rebloom again in mid summer if you deadhead the spent flowers. Salvia May Night
The Camassia plant is from a bulb that I planted last fall. It gets about 4′ tall and is another beautiful purple flower. For years I had been admiring some that my friend had so I purchased 10 bulbs last fall to add to my gardens.
The columbine flowers found their home in front of the Penstemon Husker Red perennial. I’ve received many different columbine from friends and now have four different ones that are spreading in my gardens.
This flower is from the Paeonia suffruticosa – Tree Peony. The tag says red but today it looks more like dark pink.
Recently I saw this quote on a stepping stone: Life is good, gardening makes it better. I would love to hear what is blooming in your gardens.
