GARDEN BLOGGER BLOOMS DAY JULY 2007
Here I am joining the party at May Dreams Garden
a bit late. There seem to be ever more flowers to check out in gardens from around the world this mid-summer month. Here is a Chicago Illinois zone 5 perspective. I'll be mingling.
Berries still green but soon to ripen to a deep blue on the Virginia creeper
A white phlox 'David'
Fragrant species tall phlox
This is a clump of purple coneflower(echinacea purpurea) in a bit more shade. Still blooms well but does not reseed as much as the ones in full sun.
A short liatris cultivar.
A tall species liatris.
Butterfly weed (asclepias tuberosa)
An annual coreopsis grown from seed has been flowering in many variations from full red to almost all yellow and all mixes in between. I expect blooms all summer and will start to collect a lot of seed soon.
