What's Blooming in Your Garden - A photo Thread - Part 2 May 2014

pixie_louMay 16, 2014

This is a place to post photos, and to discuss, what is in your garden. This is the second thread for May 2014. All garden photos are welcome. Since Spring is here, our focus will be on flowers in this thread. However, all landscape and garden photos are welcome. If it is a photo taken in your New England garden or your yard in the month of May, it is fair game to post it here.

Here is the link for the May 2013 thread.

the only hawthorn left on the property

and the apple tree is actually in bloom. we usually only get a few blossoms and a few apples.

the rhubarb patch is super healthy

Lots of blossoms on the blueberry bushes

I overpruned the strawberries last fall, so have very few blossoms this year. lesson learned!

Great photos in both threads. I need more Epimediums in my garden and I really want one of those white Dicentras.

OK, the Hostas are almost fully unfurled here, so I'm going to post a few pictures. I promise I'll try to restrain myself. Apologies in advance to those who think they're just plain green plants.

Eye candy galore being posted! Was it really winter a few weeks ago? I see leaves everywhere and plants just aching to get on with their lives.

Fothergilla 'Mount Airy' is in bloom.

My plants are in considerable shade so they're rangy, but I love them with the Azalea 'Hino-Crimson'. I just planted some new epimediums ('Warlayense') under these azaleas so I'm looking forward to a color echo next year. That's daffodil 'Fragrant Rose' in the vicinity.

Nearby is an old inherited azalea and I plan to plant Epimedium 'Sulphureum' under that as soon as my order arrives.

My blue hollies (Ilex meserveae) are in bloom and they have that berry bump.

Leucojum 'Gravetye Giant' is growing out of a miscanthus.

And since Steve opened the door to hostas, I'll add a few of mine (not even close to his superb collection).

Hosta 'Big Daddy' is slow but always dramatic when it emerges.

I have a bed down where the driveway meets the road and it's primarily hostas and variegated solomon's seal under a wild cherry and a forsythia, with lily-of-the-valley sneaking in.

The daffodils and scillas are gone by now and the hostas are coming up.

There's Hosta 'Undulata Univitata' on the bottom right, 'Paul's Glory' top right and 'Northern Exposure' on the left.

Since it is May, it's time for Lilacs the genus Syringa. Here's a few that I have blooming right now.

S. vulgaris 'Albert F Holden'

S. vulgaris 'Sensation'

S. vulgaris 'Krasivitsa Moscovy' (Beauty of Moscow)

S. vulgaris 'Yankee Doodle' The large florets are distinctive of the "Rochester" hybrids. This one was bred by Father Fiala in Ohio.

The daffodils are winding down, and the tulips are in full bloom, but the star of the show for me the past week or so has been the Fothergilla 'Mount Airy'. It starts with swelling chartreuse flower buds
From May 20, 2014

and over the course of many days they gradually shift until the whole plant is an explosion of white.
From May 20, 2014

From May 20, 2014

Mine are in full sun, and between their spring show, their problem-free summer foliage, and their stunning and extended fall color, this has become one of my favorite shrubs. Their one potential fault is that they sucker, so they aren't appropriate for small spots.

This early morning was foggy and so the gardens and field had a delightful softness to them.

Dee: Steve's photos look normal to me (Firefox on a Mac). Also OK on Safari - I just checked.

DtD: Tree peonies! Do they smell as good as the herbaceous peonies?

nhbabs: Your Fothergilla 'Mount Airy' looks wonderful in full sun! It's almost like a different plant when it's grown in the understory. Still nice, though.

I don't recall you showing a pond in your field before.

My fothergilla did not make it through the winter, sadly. I will most likely replace it as I did enjoy it immensely.

Dwarf irises in bloom, LotV opening, columbines opening, some patches of creeping phlox in bloom, along with Virginia and Spanish bluebells, and that's about it, I think, off the top of my head.

I'd send a photo of the rabbit -- if I could catch it in the act -- who's been nibbling daily on my Hosta Krossa Regal, now down to short stems. It's like the joke about the blank painting of the cow in the meadow: "Where's the grass?" "The cow ate it." "Where's the cow?" With the grass all eaten, why should she hang around?"

Excellent photos as always.
Steve, I really like the subtle colors in Squash Casserole.
Claire, those azaleas are such a vibrant, gorgeous color.
PL, your pic makes me wonder where my tiarella has gone and why I don't have bunches of it in the garden.
DTD, three cheers for camassia! Mine's about to bloom and it's definitely one of my favorites spring bloomers. Yours blooms at the same time as your tree peonies? Mine are across the yard from the peonies so I don't think I ever put two and two together, but that would be a good combo.
Babs, your field shots have just been spectacular and I'm so glad you continue to photograph and share.

pixie_lou: I'm amazed at all of your lovely irises so soon! I don't have any even near blooming here in zone 6b.

I do have another rhododendron - 'Percy Wiseman', who spent the winter in a cage, is free at last and blooming without having to worry about squirrels.

An old inherited lilac - I have no idea what its name is (after searching, I think it might be 'Charles Joly'):

Geranium macrorrhyzum 'Ingwersen's Variety' is one of my all purpose groundovers. Easy to grow, easy to transplant and it keeps the ground occupied so fewer weeds grow. I like it with hostas (and daylilies, and hollies...) I think that's Hosta 'Blue Cadet' on the left, and H. 'Undulata U.' on the right.

Maybe Hosta 'Blue Angel' (or 'Halcyon') lurking there (I moved a bunch of hostas several times and lost track)

And Hosta 'Diana Remembered' in the geraniums.

Some of the Spanish bluebells have started, the white ones first:

And the little native Canada Mayflower is quietly flowering:

Pixie Lou, I am suprised at your irises too! I had a flush of dwarf irises bloom, but not yet for the tall bearded iris, which is what yours look to be, am I right?

Claire, that lilac is gorgeous! What a color! And thank you! I was driving myself crazy trying to think of the name of that little plant - I have it EVERYWHERE in my lawn! - and all I could think of was mayapple or maypop, which, when googled, were not at all what I have. I don't know why mayflower didn't pop into my mind. After all, what other word besides "flower" would be so obvious, lol?

Nhbabs, love the shot of your field.

Claire, how much sun can your Canada mayflowers take? I'm looking for a native groundcover for a tough spot by the house that gets about 2 hours of intense sun in the late morning, and is shaded by the house all afternoon.

Centaurea just bloomed:

This Aquilegia has been going for a few days, but is the only one to bloom so far:

Alliums:

I posted a picture of my dogwood already, but it's been a great year for it:

And my first azalea to open this spring:

nekobus: In my yard the Canada Mayflower stays in the shade and doesn't seem to venture too far into the sunny areas. However, I don't water the areas it grows in and it can get pretty dry.

I found a website Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens that says:

"Depending on soil moisture and the nature of competing vegetation, Canada Mayflower can tolerate deepest shade, dappled light or daylong sun."

It sounds like you might be able to grow it in your conditions if you keep it well watered.

Lovely photos! Lilacs, rhodies, iris, dogwood, crab & apple blossoms, and peonies. Spring has some of my favorite flowers and it's fascinating to see the variety of schedules our plants follow depending on location and genetics. I've had both short and medium tall bearded iris blooming for a week or so.

Steve, such variety amongst your hostas! Seeing them all together is wonderful. I particularly like 'Dancing Queen.'

PixieLou - Between the bearded iris and the Siberians around your pond, you must have a long iris season. I enjoy seeing a wider shot of your iris bed.

Nekobus - For native groundcovers in mostly shade, but with some sun, look at wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens), which isn't a dense groundcover, but seems happy in all day sun to mostly shade, or partidge berry (Mitchella repens), one of my favorites, which grows in full shade to about half day sun here. You could also check out some of the native sedges and use a mix of the 4 plants (sedge, Canada mayflower, wintergreen, and partridge berry.) In many places I have at least three of those growing together.

Claire - My pond is quite seasonal most years. It houses singing frogs in spring, and in wet years like last summer never dries out enough to mow (the tractor gets stuck), but some years it's high and dry by midJuly. We sit on a clay layer about 6' from the surface, and in addition to the moisture that retains, we have also sent flow from French drains around the house's foundation toward that part of the field. I think it was originally a watering pond for the cattle that lived in a barn whose end wall is now part of the garden bed in the same photo. This hasn't been an active dairy farm since the 40's, and the barn fell in early in the 60's, but the somewhat silted and grown in pond is still there at this time of year and lets us enjoy the wood frogs and peepers along with a few visiting ducks.

Nice shot of the anemone, nekobus - I have trouble appreciating those, ever since I planted one tiny one. It was at a plant sale, and labeled 'May spread' - OMG, what an understatement! If only I'd resisted that adorable pure white flower. Anyway, I love the way you captured the blossom floating!

Just wanted to say how much I adore your lilacs, Steve and Claire; and Claire your azaleas are just magnificent!

I love your wildflowers, Pixie, especially the red trillium. I toy with the idea of adding some of these shady plants beside my brook, and perhaps some year I will. I also love the photograph of your violet covered lawn! My lawn is similar. It looks magical and provides me with the first wildflowers of the summer for my kitchen windowsill.

My flowering crabapples are just coming into bloom, the daffodils are going by, but my bleeding heart is still flowering. And my rhubarb is having a good year so far. I made a delicious rhubarb/cherry pie! It must be a good year for rhubarb.

Beautiful flowers and gardens everywhere on this thread!

I don't add much anymore, maintaining and pruning is pretty much where I am. 'The Philosophy Garden' out in a back corner is finally maturing a bit and becoming the woodland setting I wanted. The Chinese tree peony was a bare root stick I bought at a flower show some 20 years ago. It used to produce only pink and white blossoms. Now, with age, part of it has reverted to the parent stock (apparently) and it now produces two different shades of red in addition to the variegated. I think it's neat and I'm just happy it's happy. It lives in back of the bench to the right.

Siberian irises too, pixie_lou? Is there some kind of magic vapor emanating from that pond? And nhbabs has bearded irises blooming too - and she has a pond....

The tulip taking a nap I can identify with, I have some sleepy daffodils.

The close view from my deck is picking up with the doublefile viburnum (rooted cutting of unidentified 'Viburnum plicatum f. tomentosum') blooming.

I have more viburnums in this area but most of them are small and not very showy yet. Viburnum 'Summer Snowflake' is a little slower than the doublefile,

V. 'Summer Snowflake'

but the little V. prunifolium 'Forest Rouge' (whose full name is almost bigger than the shrub) - has its first ever blossom and looks to be on the same schedule as the doublefile.

V. p. 'Forest Rouge'

I'm hoping that these three will cross-pollinate and produce lots of berries.

That is a lovely spruce, Steve, with the gold new growth.

My azaleas are past peak now, but I like them with the Spanish Bluebells. That's fothergilla foliage next to it. The fothergilla has been moved a couple of times due to unfortunate siting so it hasn't bloomed yet:

and the Geranium macrorrhizum with the azaleas:

This is where I plan to add Epimedium 'Sulphureum', which may (or may not) be a good thing, along with the fothergillas. It may be too much, too busy but I want to try it.

I went out in the light rain/mist to get the mail and couldn't resist walking around with the camera.

I stood under the wisteria to look around. Last year a bad windstorm knocked the wisteria over so I had to revise its support system. The good thing is that now I can stand under it (until the next bad windstorm).

Coming out from under the wisteria, I saw the cotoneaster is blooming.

The cotoneaster is planted along a stone retaining wall, which is now almost invisible.

That's the good old Geranium macrorrhizum with ajuga next to the cotoneaster.

Moving on to the road, the Spanish bluebells are now blooming in all colors.

And in the back of the house the doublefile viburnum looks good in the rain, seen from the breezeway.

There are rugosa rose buds and peony buds and bearded iris buds on the verge of opening, but not quite there yet.

I don't know what Euphorbia this is, but it occasionally seeds, though not to any great degree. It is unfussy and tidy, and provides a nice foliage contrast to the other plants in this bed.
From Late May 2014

False Solomon's seal, Smilacina racemosa, volunteered here, probably from seeds in the soil we moved in to level off the bed. I like it at this time of year, but later in the summer it gets a bit ratty in the sun. I need to move it to a shadier spot where it will remain ornamental when the weather heats up.
From Late May 2014

My Halesia is fading now, but it while it is blooming the bees love it. This one is more of a shrub than a tree because it froze back to the snow line several times when it was young, so it has many low branches.
From Late May 2014

The bed along what was an old barn foundation.
From Late May 2014

After a rough first year between my neglecting it in a too-small pot and the voles noshing on it over the winter, this Leucosceptrum japonicum Gold Angel is glowing this season. It reminds me of a golden coleus, but is perennial.
From Late May 2014

At DH's shop, the redbud and a Viburnum burkwoodii bloom at the same time. The underplanting of woodland phlox hasn't gotten large enough to show yet, but I am hoping for a haze of lavender under the redbud in future years.
