Whoa! Where did the warm weather go already? Cool and wet here today and so many petals have been knocked off of the roses.
Aruncus Goats Beard “Misty Lace”
But there are a lot of other blooms in the garden now like this Goats Beard called “Misty Lace”. It was planted last summer after I saw so many blooming in the mountains of Virginia on a summer trip with my daughter. I loved seeing their feathery blooms brightening the roadsides up in the shady areas of the mountains so I came home and added on to my shade garden.
I started these purple Canterbury’s from seed last spring and they are blooming in amongst the white Bellflowers. I have never grown these before but so glad I tried them. They are bi-annuals so if any of you grow them and can give me some tips to keep them blooming please share.
This is suppose to be a dark purple “Rhapsody” clematis but this one is not it I do not think to my disappointment ?. LOL! I have a habit of receiving mixed up plants over the years. Something seems to like gnawing on its petals.
Sowing literally hundreds of poppy seeds over the last few years and having none germinating finally has me giving up on them so purchased this one and planted it last spring.The blooms come and go so fast I about did not get a picture of this “Bolero” poppy.
