What’s Blooming?

May 18, 2012


The garden is in full Spring bloom: Iris, Rhododendron, Peonies, Jack-In-The-Pulpit, Bungleweed, Creeping Phlox, Anemone. I am totally digging the way the light was shining through the Iris foliage – like stained glass.

    Wow! Your flower garden is awesome! Great photos too. Thanks Ashley for asking the question. I may need to steal some of your flowers.

      Thanks! I planted some creeping rose and worked on the boxwood hedge this past weekend. I’m traveling for work but hope to get the post up this week.

    Questions! Can you name everything for me?!

    Okay not everything. But a few things?

    The purple-y blue short plants.
    The little pink flowers.
    The white flowers following the pink flowers.

    And I saw on Pinterest that the red ones are peonies?

      purple blue – bungleweed. It’s a ground cover that had dark purple almost shiny foliage and it blooms with the blue spiky flowers for about a month in the Spring. Be careful where you plant it because it can take over.

      pink – creeping phlox. I wish it bloomed for more than just a few weeks. Covered in blooms and doubles in size almost every years. spiky green foliage all year round.

      white – anemone, white snow drop I think. foliage looks like parsley, spreads nicely. Another Spring bloomer.

      Red – peonies that came with the house. herbaceous, which means they die back to the ground every winter. Ours get 4 feet tall! Supposed to be a late Spring bloomer, but early this year.

      I love your garden plans! Hydrangeas are a favorite of mine.
