Bloom Day August 2010

The past couple of weeks have seen a slight rebound in growth and blooms in the garden despite the continued above average temps. The most evident(and one of the most prevalent in LWG) bloom has been from the salvias.

Cherry Chief

Salvia chamedryoides, Blue oak Sage

S. greggii~ white

S. greggii~ Bright Pink

Even the shy flowering 'Diane' with S. uliginosa, Bog Sage

S. farinacea 'Henry Duelberg' peeking out over thyme and a floppy stem of Euphorbia corolata

Then there's the Budleias- lindleyana

and 'Potter's Purple'

My first Mexican Petunia bloom of the year...

...and the second place price for rooting thru the pot and growing in the wrong place goes to Crape Myrtle 'Natchez' as seen blooming here with the lovely princess Meike.

I hope you are enjoying lots of blooms in your garden this August. Visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens for more Bloom Day posts.

  1. I love your Salvias and I bet the hummers do too! I have discovered rabbits do not like the plant. Yeah!! Lovely photos.
