The mild temperatures and early blooms of spring have gone by the wayside, but as the temps approach triple digits, a whole new set of flowers have stepped up for bloom duty.
Here's a look at what's blooming in my garden this month.
The crape myrtles are in full bloom.
Containers are filled with...
- Variegated Tapioca
- Pink Pentas
- Blue Daze
Summer Phlox (Phlox paniculata) and peach daylilies make a colorful and reliable combination.
Rose of Sharon
Texas Star Hibiscus
'King Humbert' Canna
Zexmenia is one of my favorite plants. It is a Texas native that blooms all summer long and just laughs at heat and drought.
'Carmine' Gerber Daisy
This is a new addition to my garden. This new variety of gerber daisy got rave reviews from the Dallas Arboretum in their trial gardens.
I just had to give it a try!
The front beds are full of color this month
- Shasta Daisies
- Summer Phlox
- Salvia greggii
- Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm'
More blooms in the front beds:
Endless Summer Hydrangea
This is a section of the new shade bed expansion in the backyard. I'll post "before & after" pictures later to show you the transformation.
I know this looks more like a foliage picture, but my Bear's Breeches is actually blooming for the very first time.
Here's a closeup of the bloom stalk.
These peach daylilies area a pass-along plant from a friend of mine.
I don't know what variety they are, but I love them combined with the Russian Sage.
Finally, just a shot of some of my containers filled with...
