Some July Plants in My Garden

I have an impression that everything is blooming earlier this summer. 
These are some of the July stars in my garden.
A new poppy is in my garden. Thank you Peggy  for the seeds!
The plants are beautiful.

Most of my day lilies are peach-orange. Cathy, thank you for this one! It stands apart:

In the next two pictures, there is Orlaya grandiflora, biennial. 
Brian, a garden blogger from Kansas City, sent me seeds several years ago after I complimented his plants.
I like how nicely they fill the space between the other plants.

It looks good even after blooming:

Cala lily underside. The flowers are gone, but the leaves are lovely:

 Lobelia tupa is blooming. I showed it in a previous post.
This particular plant is pretty short, about 3 feet, and I like it.

 Monarda looks as if she just came out of the hair salon:

Hummingbirds love it:

This dark poppy's seeds were sent to me by one of the catalogs as a thank you for using my picture of tulips in a pot for their article:

Sempervivum is blooming:

Black and Blue Salvia:

Echinacea 'Milkshake' ovewintered and blooming: 

Balloon flowers are among my favorites:

Agastache  'Golden Jubilee' :

Himalayan Honeysuckle (Leycesteria formosa):

Lacecap Hydrangea 'Princess Lace':

Gunnera manicata has two blooms and is producing new leaves:

Rose Regensberg floribunda is a small thin bush with black spots on its leaves, but its flowers are lovely:

Astilbe has a new neighbor this year, Rose campion:

Hydrangea 'Oregon Pride' manages to keep its bright pink color in our acidic soil:

It looks like hostas bloom earlier than usual:

Geraniums in pots are ready to be moved where some color is needed:

Kale reminds me of an alien:

Euphorbia graminea will be the last in this post, but not the last in my July garden.

Have a great Sunday and week ahead!
