Wisteria macrostachys 'Blue Moon' with Phlox pilosa 'Eco Happy Traveler' and 'Carefree Beauty' rose (far background- in bloom).
|Clematis 'Viola' climbing a Magnolia|
This year, I'm allowing a bit of 'Viola' to scramble across the New England asters in the Nanoprairie. The only true scrambler here is Petit Faucon.
|Clematis 'Evisix' Petit Faucon™|
Squirrelhaven is filled with sweet scents, but not near the Phuopsis stylosa.
While the other columbines are nearly done blooming, my own seed strain 'Heart of Gold' is still going strong.
|Aquilegia vulgaris 'Heart of Gold'|
The woodland garden is winding down, except for the Gillenia
|Gillenia trifoliata a/k/a Porteranthes|
|Lilium martagon album|
I can't remember the last time this lily bloomed, but I know it didn't have this many buds. At one time there were three plants. Now, there is only the one. I wish I knew why it is so unreliable in my garden.
For the last photo, a combination of Knautia macedonia 'Thunder & Lightning' and Golden Spirit smokebush.
|Knautia macedonia 'Thunder & Lightning' and Cotinus coggygria 'Ancot' Golden Spirit™|
I'm not sure if I like this combo when the smokebush is smoking, but later in summer it's striking.
Much more is in bloom now, but there isn't time to include everything. As always, thanks goes to Carol of May Dreams Gardens for sponsoring Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.
