Summer Blooming Flowers 7-15-2016

Time is really the only capital that any human being has, and the only thing he can’t afford to lose. ~ Thomas Edison

Don’t waste any time! Go see what I found blooming in 201320142015

Lychnis coronaria or Silene coronaria (dang botonists!) ~ rose champion  | Acer ~ Maple


Lathyrus latifolius ~ Sweet pea vine

Dracunculus vulgaris ~ Dragon Flower, Dragon Arum, Voodoo Lily, Black Lily  |  Not sure either ~ Batting 1,000.

The voodoo lily was in Wisconsin, a zone 4 area. I was shocked to read that this crazy, cool plant is hardy to zone 5B! I’m 5A… a whole letter higher in zone 😉 This guy may survive in a well protected, well mulched, shady spot in my garden. I’m so looking for some of these. You can also dig these croms in fall and over-winter them in the garage.

Potentilla fruticosa or Dasiphora fruticosa ~ Shrubby cinquefoil or whatever the botanists are calling it today.

Clematis growing up a beautiful trellis.

Centaurea macrocephala ~ Globe centaurea   |   Huh…

Lupinus ~Lupine   |   Lysimachia punctata ~ Yellow loosestrife


Nice variety =-)
