  1. Wasn't that Lobelia tupa wonderful? Such a great color. All the others I've seen have been a sort of burgundy, but that one had some orange shades in it, which I loved.

    Thanks for posting your photos, always a treat.

    1. Alison, thanks! We asked about it, and we've been told that this variety is not sold. The one that usually can be found for sale is tupa lobelia with darker flowers, as you described.

  2. Спасибо! Очень красиво! Жаль что фото не передают запаха цветов. Во время просмотра фотографий я ощущала себя внутри Вашего сада. Мне стало легко дышать среди этой красоты!

    1. Спасибо, Татьяна! Этот сад не мой. Если будет желание, приходите на мой русскоязычный блог Pelageya, русская американка.

  3. Thanks for close-up views of some lovely woodland plants! I planted woodland aster this past spring. It was a bargain table buy, and I wasn't sure what to expect of it. It is blooming now, and I am so pleased with it. I also love the shape of its leaves.

    1. Thank you, Deb! I fell in love with this plant!

  4. Wow ZI loved this garden...I have never seen an almost black looking hydrangea flower.

    1. Thanks, Donna! That hydrangea is a showstopper!

  5. Beautiful garden with some really interesting plants. Love the Kirengeshomas, Hydrangeas, especially the one with the spidery flowers around, the lilies, autumn crocusses. Thank you for sharing these pictures of special plants.

    1. Janneke, thaks for your comment! There are thousands of interesting plants there, and I'd love to see them during different seasons.

  6. Gorgeous! That dark blue hydrangea is stunning. What a fabulous color. But that fascicularia has got to be one of the most unusual plants I've ever seen. Fascinating.


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