Tuesday's blooms

Julia NY(6)July 15, 2014

Some pics to share for today. Peak bloom will definitely be by the weekend. But still many to go yet :-)

PLUM FOOLISH - poor thing is stuck behind some of my iris but hopefully this fall it will get moved to a better spot.

MEXICAN MAGIC - just starting to get going. Many scapes and buds to go.

PINK AT THE BALLET - one of my favorites although not a lot of scapes or buds but I forgive it since it is being crowded out by AZATEC HEADDRESS and a few others. Hopefully I can open up space in that bed and give it room.

JAMIE DOCKERY - just started opening this morning. Most of the Rice cultivars are scaped, budded and just waiting their turn to put on a show.

BROADWAY SPARKLER - this is one vigorous daylily. Always puts on a show, increases quickly and many scapes.
Scape height is short but the blooms are small so it works.

LAVENDER BLUE BABY - opening up with not the perfect blooms I expect from it.

BIG HONKING HEARTTHROB - just started opening. Big blooms, tall scapes and many buds to go.

WHIP CITY OOPSIE - I love yellows and especially tall yellows. Started opening today.

ISLE OF PATMOS - opened with a duo this morning.

SOCIAL GRACES - many scapes and buds. Crowding out some of my other plants in the bed.

SPACECOAST DIXIE CHICK -

SPACECOAST CRANBERRY BREEZE

SPACECOAST STARBURST

SPACECOAST CITRUS KICK

SOVEREIGN QUEEN

That is it for today.

My faves are Jamie Dockery and Isle of Patmos. The Spacecoast ones look sparsely budded, but I like the color of the cranberry one (I see some web shots with splotchiness). Mexican Magic growth here is feeble. Surprised that the Miner evergreens grow well for you. I like Plum Foolish, but not crazy about 20" height.

mantis: The Spacecoasts have come back each year (5 years I've had them now) and sit in a bed which gets the north winds all winter with no protection. I plan to find a new home for them this year. I'd like to clear out an entire bed and redo with perennials, a few daylilies and some ornamental bushes. My wish list for this year :-)

Jamie Dockery is always a favorite, and there's something wonderful about the eye on Broadway Sparkler. It looks like a great front-of-the-border plant.

My picks are the purples - Jamie Dockery, Isle of Patmos and Lavender Blue Baby.
All spacecoasts are pretty! I had a negative experience with one, and now I am leery.

I love Jamie Dockery. Isle of Patmos and Big Honking Heartthrob look great too, and Broadway Sparkler is cute!

I'm liking the purples, they are really doing good for you. Plum Foolish is especially pretty with that light edge, sets it off perfectly.
