Almost Wordless Wednesday: Hello, Summer!


Shasta daisies and tall red 'I don't know their name' daylilies


Small 'Little Business' daylily


These trumpet lilies are over 6 feet tall! Heliopsis and 'Coral Reef' monarda grow in the background.



Pastel zinnias and'Ava' agastache grow in containers near the blue and pink blossoms of the Rose of Sharon.

 Red and fuschia monarda
I like their synchronized clashing. It feels exuberant to me.


A much calmer grouping of kalimeris, sedum, 'Sun Queen' veronica, and slightly squished linnaria near a native ash tree.


Red maltese cross (Lychinis) and variegated Painter's Palette grow near a thriving clump of toad lilies.

  1. Żeby móc oglądać piękne kwiaty nie trzeba słów, wystarczy na nie patrzeć i podziwiać. Pozdrawiam serdecznie.
    To be able to watch all the beautiful flowers you do not need words, just to look at and admire. Best regards.

  2. Lovely display of Monarda, I grew some last year but they succumbed to mildew. Different weather this year though, so they might do better.
    I also like your 'don't know their name' daylilies, lovely colour.

  3. Wow...your Monarda is way ahead of mine, and we are in the same zone. The daisies look so beautiful and full. After mine bloom I will need to divide them...getting kinda' floppy...

  4. You have a clump of toad lilies! oh I'm jealous. you'll have to post some photos when they bloom. In the meantime I'll drool over that swath of monarda. What a great blast of colour that is.

  5. Holy crap, that is a tall lily! I am glad that someone else has the 'I don't know their name' variety of daylily. I have lots of those growing in my garden. Your garden is looking wonderful with all those mass plantings of color! Happy Summer!

  6. I really like the red flowers. And your trumpet lily is a beauty! I hope mine grows up to be like that. It has produced only one bloom, but I'm just happy it's still alive!

  8. Those trumpet lilies are magnificent! Don't you love the "zing" of Red Monarda? That intense scarlet is such a standout.

  9. So much of your garden is already in bloom - beautiful! I love your pairings and monarda, no matter the color combinations are always a vibrant scene stealer :)

  10. I have a purple monarda that is going full tilt right now. Your gardens look great!! Love the daisies with the lilies. There is one lily that is really tall at the Park Seed garden, 'Silk Road' I think. Those tall ones are super at the back of the garden.

  11. Summer is definitely here! I really like your monarda! I am shocked to find monarda growing and blooming in my 'wildflower garden', a sloping area with as many weeds as flowers and a great frustration to me. I planted the monarda several years ago, but it appeared to perish. However, this year it has returned and bloomed. I wonder if my single surviving plant has any hope to spread and look as wonderful as yours!
