August blooms

Waitforspring(6 MA)August 11, 2012

Company is gone, but I can't get out to take pictures today. It's raining!!

Here are just a few I managed to take last week. All of those were new last year so I don't know how they'll perform in a "normal" year.


This one is reblooming.

Didn't you just have some bad storms come through--hope no damage done. I like all of these, particularly Jellyfish Jealousy. I love M. Reed's hybrids, but I think they are mostly hard dormants which wouldn't do well here. Avedon

Avedon, we didn't have anything but some very heavy rain last night. Only came down hard for a short time, but I did have a section of the newly done area of the yard underwater which is a concern. Just getting light rain today.
Margo Reed's things do very well here--some almost too well--increasing like bunnies. I know she has some that are registered as semi-evergreen. This one is dormant though.

All the pics are nice. Is DANCING RAINBOW very pink?
I have JELLYFISH JEALOUSY too. Just got it this year and it did bloom for a couple of weeks before I clipped off the scapes. Mine varied from a very light lemony yellow to almost whitish. I have several of Margo's and Jim's here for a couple of years and yes, they do multiply like rabbits. I'm hoping all the new ones I got this spring will increase just as quickly.

Julia, I'd say DANCING RAINBOW is a slightly lavender pink.
Nancy, JELLYFISH JEALOUSY is one that I'd wanted for a while so,I was happy to finally get it.
