Here’s a peek at what we have put together for you!
The sun has actually shown on us a bit between all the bouts of summer rain here at the farm and it has allowed the perennials are really start showing off there best faces. We still have lots of plants in bloom now to fill up any empty spots that have been haunting you in your garden.
It is thriving in the back of my shade garden and is tall enough to stand out back there with it’s long lasting blooms. The flowers are really pretty, white with flecks of pink, and look very delicate against the green broad leaves.
Here is a great view of an established day lily planting. These ones are Hemerocallis ‘Big Bird’, a great lemony yellow and a steady summer bloomer. We have many different heights and colors to choose from at the farm, not just your general tall orange garden variety. They are always a reliable choice and can be established quickly even in an unreliable place like here by the side of the road.
We also still have shrubs and trees galore if you want to take advantage of the all the rain and do some serious planting. The Buddhas are happily watching over these lovely climbing hydrangeas, a great choice for planting on a stone wall.
And here is the ever popular Hydrangea ‘Endless Summer’, the loveliest steady blooming large leaf blue variety. If it starts to turn pink on you, try giving it a little acidic fertilizer. Come and get them while they last!
So, I promise to do another posting soon. Feel free to let me know what you want to hear about in the comments. I apologize that it took me so long to get this post together. I need to start making a habit of getting out of the greenhouse for a few minutes every few days and get into the office to post more regularly. It is just so hard to pull myself away!
Just have a look at the size of them already, and this is just in an 8 inch pot!
You can let them hang wild like you see here, or you can transplant them out of the hanging pots we grow them in and easily train them to grow up a trellis or fence. When given some blooming fertilizer regularly, they should bloom all summer in full or even part sun.
This one is Passiflora ‘Purple Haze’. It is a lovely P. caerulea hybrid that has large showy flowers with white and pale purple petals, a dark purple center, and a white and purple corolla.
This one is Passiflora ‘Inspiration’. It is truly stunning with a very large frilly flower with lavender and purple petals, a lavender center, and a white and dark purple corolla.
As if that wasn’t enough, here is one of the few true red passionflowers we have found to be as prolific a bloomer as the purple ones. This Passiflora ‘Lady Margaret’ has large flowers with crimson red petals, a white center, and dark red corona with white tips.
We have an ever changing supply made fresh on site right here at the farm!
