Some Splendid Clumps Before Decline
Since not all plants participated, there was never a normal peak here. But a number of cultivars had nice clump displays before the decline which is now setting in.
Soft Summer Night (old, but lovely)
Atlas Shrugged Aptly described by Hanson as brawny and masculine:
Roman Cohort (sends up immediate rebloom scapes) Huge flower:
Paco Bell Don't know if it always blooms this low.
Passion for Red
Border Lord Unfortunately, this display was on a bright sunny day, so I had to get an early morning shot, which of course, distorted the colors with a bluing effect.
Please Say Yes Taken in afternoon during a cloudy break:
Heavenly Angel Ice (close-up)
Highland Pinched Fingers The blooms appear more orange (less yellow effect) in reality:
Never Get Away
Land of Cotton
Born to Run (best flowers of the season and a close-up)
Blue Pink Beauty
Sherry Lane Carr
Lemon Velvet (a close-up--not a large flower)
