The main garden is showing gold, silver and purple these days. Lamb’s Ears (Stachys byzantina) are blooming, which I leave for the bees, purple catmint (Nepeta mussinii) is looking the best ever in various spots throughout the garden; four golden flowers: Sundrops (Oenothera fructicosa), Loosestrife (Lysimachia punctata) in the middle, somewhat hidden, Daylily (Hemerocallis ‘Happy Returns’) is starting and the tall spires Carolina Lupine (Thermopsis villosa) complete the picture.
With the current heat wave we are experiencing, things are moving along quickly. You can practically hear the plants growing.
In the driveway bed, there is pink Beardtongue (Penstemon digitalis ‘Husker Red), two Foxgloves, purple and yellow (Digitalis purpurea and D. grandiflora).
In the shade garden, Primrose (Primula x bulleesiana) and next to the porch Clematis ‘Madame Julia Correvon’ is doing her thing.
With June now a memory, the July flowers are coming on strong, brought on by warm, sunny days. Stay tuned!
