|Easter Lily, Lilium longiflorum|
|Brazilian Plume, Justicia carnea|
|Flowering Maple, Abutilon|
These little cupheas are another clearance rack find. They bloom constantly. If they behave like my 'candy corn' cuphea, they will die back in winter but return in spring. But, they may turn out to be an annual. If so, they were worth the discounted price.
|Stoke's Aster, Stokesia laevis|
|Coral honeysuckle, Lonicera sempervirens|
The little coral honeysuckle purchased from the county jail plant sale for $1 has finally bloomed! I planted this one last fall when it was only a foot tall and it has covered an obelisk that is five feet tall. No blooms appeared until this week. I've been worried all spring that it was not really coral honeysuckle. But, it is! Yay!
|Blanket Flower, Gaillardia pulchella|
|Rain Lily, Zephyranthes grandiflora|
We did get two inches of rain this past weekend. I guess that was enough to trigger the rain lilies that live at the edge of the non-boggy bog garden. While that rain event was quite welcome, the garden and I can't wait until the regular summer rains begin.
