New Bloomers for Thursday

maximus7116(MI)July 24, 2014

DIANA COOKE TUPPENY is a 2014 intro from Curt Hanson. This is the FFO, and later flowers should have a more pronounced watermark, but I love the bright color:

Reliable ORANGE VELVET began its bloom season:


Another shot of VANILLA GORILLA, which is starting to show some curls:


And I couldn't resist another photo of RASPBERRY FLAMBE because it looked so good with the background of lilies. You'd think I planned it that way!

Vanilla Gorilla almost has ringlets. Your photos showcase so many wonderful plant combinations (accidental or not). Thanks for sharing them.

Beautiful pictures and daylilies. The new Hanson looks awesome... and Vanilla Gorilla is calling my name.

What a big bright one is Diana! All look good, but I wonder about Eternal Warrior's performance since it's a Salter. Yes, Raspberry Flambe has the perfect background.

Thanks Stat -- the combinations are almost always accidental! I go by the "there's a hole, fill it with a daylily" routine.

Twix, I love both new Hansons from this year. I still have one from 2013 that doesn't look like it will bloom again this year, and I was really excited about that one. I think it's time to move things around a little in the garden. I love the name Vanilla Gorilla, too.

Mantis, I've had Eternal Warrior for years, but it's been partially shaded the entire time I've grown it, so I don't think I can honestly assess its performance.

An man, such pretty photos, Chris. I had lost the post, but knew it was here. Raspberry Flambe is beautiful with the lilies, that's for sure. No Boys Allowed is a big beautiful bloom. Love the color on Eternal Warrior. and Diana Cook Tuppeny is a gorgeous color too. I like the edge on it. Orange Velvet and the Bee Balm look beautiful together. this was a beautiful post, Chris.

Great FFO on Hanson's new intro. Love the color. Eternal Warrior is pretty. Vanilla Gorilla is very interesting. And I really like Raspberry Flambe - lilies combo!

Hooray! No Boys Allowed finally bloomed for you, and it looks fabulous. I like the combos of Orange Velvet with the monarda and Raspberry Flambe with the lilies. The form of Vanilla Gorillas is exquisite, and your new Hanson is quite lovely.

They all look so good! I like the wide open look of DIANA COOKE TUPPENY, but No Boys Allowed is especially gorgeous. That really is a great picture of Raspberry Flambe with the lilies, so pretty.

Thanks, Debra and Nan. The blooms on NBA are huge and the scapes are very tall. If the bud count increases, I'll be happy.
