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!

  1. It is all so gorgeous especially the new poppy...and I am smitten with the monarda in my garden too as I watch the bees, butterflies and hummers adorn it.

    1. Donna, isn't it wonderful to watch hummingbirds? Although, one bird usually chases all the others away!

  2. Oh, you have lovely flowers in your garden! So beautiful and colorful. Wonderful photos.

    1. maatuska, thank you! I think July is the most colorful month!

  3. Oh! those frilled poppies. I know how happy I am when one frilled poppy shows up among hundreds of singles. I do find the bees have difficulty with them favoring the singles. Gorgeous blooms and your photography is second to none.

    1. Rock rose, I've never thought about bees and different types of poppies! Interesting!

  4. What a wonderful collection of plants, so colourful! Your poppies are gorgeous, such a beautiful colour, but I especially love the day lilies, they look spectacular. I'm glad I found your blog and look forward to your future posts.

    1. Paula, it is so nice to see you, and I'm glad you liked the pictures! I wish those lilies' blooms lasted longer!

  5. Your garden is stunning! Such beautiful photography and I love your hydrangea!

    1. Thank you Shirley! It was time when I was indifferent to hydrangea, but now I keep adding new bushes!

  6. Wow, fabulous macros! I'm drooling over here. I always enjoy your photos, Tatyana. You have a special eye for gardens, plants, and flowers. That Lobelia is ... excepetional.

    1. Your words make me feel very good, Beth! Thank you!

  7. I know I always say this, but your photos are incredible and so are your plants! I barely got past the first photo of the poppy. If only I could grow them here! But everything in your makes me want it.

  8. hi Tatyana, I just commented on your Russian blog. Interesting that you have different blogs for Russian and English. I agree with Beth above, wonderful how you get up so close and personal with the flowers. Love that bee.

  9. So many beautiful flowers. Gunnera always fascinates me with it's crazy looking blooms!

  10. Absolutely brilliant as always Tatyana... I have been out straight making changes in the gardens this year and don't get by as often as I should have... definitely my loss!!! Larry

  11. You have so many beautiful blooms! One can tell that loving hands have created your garden. Who would think to photograph kale and call it alien! I agree! I also like that your garden contains plants given to you from other gardeners.

  12. I'm just totally mesmerized by the colours in your garden.
    Just can't believe that these actually grow in the same world that we are both in.. LOL!
    They are totally out the world - in my point of view..
    Continue to share the beauties of these wonderful garden of yours.


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
