I really love blue flowers. I think they add so much to a garden. They especially look good with my yellow/apricot/orange roses and daylilies. I've been adding lots lately to The Garden of Good and Evil. I recently planted Penstemon heterophyllus 'Electric Blue', Echinops 'Plantinum Blue', Campanula persicifolia 'Coerulea', Veronica teucrium 'Royal Blue' and Delphinium 'Delfix Blue'.
Delphiniums don't do very well in the south, but this is a smaller one, and they were selling it here, so I'm giving it a try. It's the most beautiful shade of blue.
I love the unusual coloring of this asiatic lily. It's just about all faded out here. My lily love is fairly recent. I didn't like them for years and years. Now I think they're a great addition.
I've received my last roses of the season. These are from Roses Unlimited. They send the healthiest, most beautiful plants. Now I just have to figure out where to plant them all. Only one has spot so far.
I got 'Clementina Carbonieri' (Replacing 'Mme. Charles' in Good and Evil. Now I have to figure out where to move 'Mme. Charles'.), 'Mrs. B.R. Cant', 'Duchesse de Brabant', 'Buff Beauty' and 'Adam'. I'm going to have to expand!
I'm finished ordering/buying plants. For this year. Maybe.
I adore garden statuary. I have several small ones. I so want something large and prominent. I don't even know where to look. Maybe I should hit the flea market.
This is a busted up statue girl from my mother's garden. She used to be part of a fountain. I'm thinking of using her in my future Ruins Garden.
