What blooms in late May-early June?

I'm in East TN.
We just had a pond tour and it was SO hot so our koi club is thinking of having the annual tour in late May or early June next year.
So , what blooms around that time?

I've already got a pretty good list started by going back and looking at some of my photos but I'm sure there are things that others have that I don't.
Here's what I have so far:

ground ivy
English ivy
pink evening primrose
red hot poker
bachelor buttons
water hyacinth (if weather is warm enough)
purple salvia (sorry , don't know what the name is)
lambs ear
coral bells
some water lilies
banana plant is up
wigelia (sp?)
Mrs. Perry D. Slocum lotus
Mtn. Laural
ice plant

Wished you had asked a couple of months ago. I can't remember yesterday.

When do azaleas bloom here?
What about Flowering Almond?

Thanks for making me laugh brandon7, needed that.

LOL Brandon.
Why do you think I'm hear asking you all? ;D
I can't remember either. I've had to cheat and look at pictures I took.

Chris, thanks I hadn't even thought of those.

If we do change the date of the tour I wanted to be able to give a list to our members soon so they could plan ahead and maybe get some things in the ground before next spring.

It seems like most of my summer-flowering perennials have historically looked their best around this time. I remember because the garden usually is at its peak right around our wedding anniversary, June 5.

Hi there--I'm in East TN also and am new to the forum! Just thought I'd chime in and say 'Husker Red' penstemon, 'May Night' salvia, 'Rozanne' geranium, and alliums would be nice choices for blooming in that time frame.
