May Bloom Day

With everything going on right now, I almost forgot about May's Garden Bloggers Bloom Day sponsored by Carol at May Dreams Gardens. The perennial border is filled with bloomers this month! I defend for my Masters tomorrow and am quite busy so I will have to substitute my usual closeups for mostly wide shots and a list. It does give me a chance to show off the perennial border, which is looking beautiful right now!


Blooming right now: Penstemon, Gallardia, Scabiosa 'Butterfly Blue', Catmint 'Walker's low', Guara 'Whirling Butterflies' and 'Pink Gin', Red Knockout rose, Allium giganteum, Dianthus 'Heart Attack', Phlox 'Minnie Pearls', Coreopsis 'Moonbeam', Purple Flag Iris, Lespedeza, Spirea, Hydrangea 'Endless Summer', Hydrangea 'Annabelle', Agastache 'Salmon and Pink', Lamium... and some more! I hope to feature many of these as Plant Spotlights.

  3. Thank you for taking time to take part in Bloom Day and for the long shots of what is in bloom. Your scalloped borders are lovely. Enjoyed the Michelia spotlight, too. They eventually make trees in our climate. There are huge trees at Ichauway Plantation and small trees in a park in town here.

  5. I wish you could see me clapping my hands about the hydrangeas, lol. They're my favorite plant! I'd love to see some of the varieties you have. My Endless Summer and Brestenburg haven't bloomed yet, but I'm waiting....
