|Liatris spicata is a June bloomer in my garden|
Today we celebrate the flowers that glow in the daylight! It's Bloom Day and Garden Bloggers all over the known bloggasphere are celebrating the blooms in their garden. You can see more gardens then you can imagine in one day if you stop by hostess extraordinaire Carol of May Dreams Gardens to take the Mr Linky magic carpet ride to adventure.
Here are just a few blooms that make me smile~
Tennessee Purple Coneflower~ Echinacea tennesseensis
An offspring of the many cross pollinated Echinaceas.
We bid ado to the last of the Hypericum frondosum
Yarrow 'Moonshine' has been blooming in a container for more then a month
Verbena bonariensis adds needed vertical to garden and is loved by pollinators
Malva sylvestris 'Zebrina'~Contained in a container
Lost label Oriental Lilies~ they light up the garden and smell divine!
and, even more daylilies!
Moonflower Vine. It's always a marvelous night for them. They need no sunshine to open. Moonflower waits for those warm summer evenings to unfurl its glorious blooms and release its fragrance. A fragrance that exists only to attract pollinators and gardeners! How I wish it would grow in shade~I would plant it near the screened porch and catch that fragrance all evening and maybe even spot a Luna moth!
Have a sweet day.
