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!
