That noid looks familiar. How tall? Flower size? Pocket Change? Someone should know that. Sea Dragon looks mighty fine, but it does appear to be blooming beneath the foliage. Is that always the case?

The Sea Dragon clump is a wow! Forever Redeemed and Fear Not always look perfect, and I do love Raspberries in Cream. I wish it would thrive here.

You have a ton of great blooms, but my favorites have to be Yellow Titan (great clump shot!) and Raspberries in Cream.

Thanks all!
Like I said I posted almost all of my favorites that were blooming today :) The only thing.. my laptop monitor distorts the colors, like zinnia looks almost orange-red, Fear Not looks like dull dark pink instead of bright red as it is and so on. Don't know why is that. That's why I like to view pics on my old-style desktop monitor, but I can't post from there.

Thanks for the suggestion Mantis! Pocket Change is more sort of true red than my noid. Several years ago you suggested something with the word Sultry in the name, iirc, but it was not that either. There are so many of such reds.
Yes, I mentioned last time I posted that Sea Dragon blooms in the foliage - not bad, still visible as can be seen in the pic but still in the foliage. But, I like how it looks, like the name, and this year it has rebloom scapes coming up!

Debra, one of the girls I know got a seedling that looks just like RIC!! She only remembers the pod parent, and it was.. Strawberry Candy! She thinks she crossed it with some red self.

Forever Redeemed is one of my favorites too. It does well here. I love your clump of Sea Dragon (almost got that one, now wish I had) and I especially love the clump of the mighty Yellow Titan. That one demands attention!

Ditto on the SEA DRAGON stunning. It reminds me of a bonus plant that I received in the spring BELLA NOTE and also like SOMEWHAT AWESOME. I was in a purple mood in the spring.
THE BAND PLAYED ON is on my want list as well as
Your post is great I love when there are lots of pictures!
Which reminds me I planted white lilies last year and no white showed up this year. Hum... guess they kicked the bucket.

Sea Dragon is a color that can sometimes be splotchy, but every flower on that clump looks perfect. I always like Man of Sorrows.
