Here are some of the blooms catching my eye in my garden:
Brugmansia 'Snowbank' has leaves edged in white and sweet blooms that emerge white, slowly aging to light peach.
Smells divine at night.
As does Brugmansia 'Charles Grimaldi'
This is the month of the lilies! Some seem a little early to me. I'm blaming the heat. The cool thing about GBBD is that I can go back and see what was blooming in my garden at this time in years past.
Trachelospermum jasminoides AKA Confederate Jasmine. Will not be taking this down.
Alstroemeria 'Sweet Laura'
Clerodendrum trichotomum has become a humming bird battle ground.
Hydrangea quercifolia which, in our recent heat has produced a lovely fragrance that I'd never smelled before.
Those silly pansies, planted out in October to bloom through the winter but didn't have been blooming since spring. Crazy things.
Weedy wild sweet peas
Buddleia with a weeping and non invasive habit.
Albizia julibrissin or Mimosa. Here, they're not invasive.
Gardenia by the back door. Ah, the fragrance!
Crazy neon geranium (pelargonium) that's been blooming all year.
Hosta 'Sum and Substance'
Not technically a flower, here's some smoke from the smoke tree.
Bunch of stuff.
Crocosmia 'Hell Fire'
Calycanthus 'Hartlage Wine' keeps throwing out blooms. Hope it doesn't think it's dying!
