Man, I totally get why Carol dreams of May. I was looking at my garden today thinking, Do I have too many flowers? Is it too much? I just checked last year's entry and some things are late to bloom, like my Geranium 'Rozanne' and my Verbascum bombyciferum 'Arctic Snow,' but everything else is right on schedule. I'm going to try and limit my listings here to things that are new or particularly nice looking right now.
|Camassia quamash, the straight species, blooms later than 'Blue Danube'|
|Spiraea betulifolia var. lucida|
|Aquilegia chrysantha 'Flore Pleno'|
|Nicotiana alata 'Lime green' and Viburnum plicatum 'Watanabe' (I think)|
|Allium jesdianum 'Early Emperor'|
|Thalictrum 'Black Stockings'|
|Disporum cantoniense 'Night Heron'|
|Lonicera 'Major Wheeler'|
|Ceanothus thyrsiflorus has a washed out color that I don't love but the bees seem to.|
|Salvia 'May Night'|
|Cotula hispidula and Lewisia cotyledon|
|Salvia 'Amistad' died this winter so I bought a replacement. Totally worth it.|
Whew! Thanks for hosting Carol. Summer is practically upon us; I guess I should think about mulching soon?
