As I think I mentioned before, some of the delphiniums from last year didn’t come back, and some of the new delphiniums are yet to bloom. The co-gardener pretty much said “not again.” I don’t know why they are so testy… maybe they just don’t like being in the rose garden (unfortunately, thanks to the neighbor’s trees, the rose garden is part shade – not good for roses). ‘Blue Bird’ looks nice, though.
This is done blooming, but I had meant to include it. I already posted some pictures of the volunteer native bleeding hearts, but this one is in the woodland garden and was planted there.
This heuchera is in the woodland garden (the other two from the woodland garden got moved out in a previous post). It seems to be doing fine there. Heucheras were originally referred to as “coral bells,” but a lot of them are no longer grown for their blooms, but instead for their evergreen foliage.
The hardy gloxinia might be done – I’m not sure. It is seriously crowded in its spot and did not attain the height that it did last year (it was purchased blooming, which can lead to let-downs the next year).
