Willows

We have three willows in the garden: one in the swamp and two in the cat garden area. The willow in the swamp is a black pussy willow, so I’m posting pictures of it from February that show its fuzz. I may add more recent photographs of that willow after I weed the area (but it is in February when it looks interesting). The pictures of the other two willows are from spring and summer.

I see some pruning in the future, especially for the two willows in the cat garden. Actually, I’m not super fond of the shape of the black pussy willow, so maybe sometimes I’ll prune it down too.

You can see other views of two of the willows in this recent post about the cat garden.

Red Flowering Currants

We have two red flowering currants: one is a cultivar, and the other is the regular native species. The cultivar definitely blooms more profusely (and earlier). The cultivar is in the woodland garden, which has pretty nice soil, while the regular species is in the swamp: that could make a different, I guess. These pictures were mostly taken in March, with a few taken in early April.

Chinese Primrose, Wallflower, Alstroemeria

The Chinese primrose grows in the swamp and provides some nice color.

I showed this wallflower before, but I thought it looked full and attractive. Definitely long blooming. It has gotten a bit too big for its spot – I might see if I can tame it a bit.

wallflower: Erysimum linifolium 'Bowle's Mauve'

wallflower: Erysimum linifolium ‘Bowle’s Mauve’

I really like this alstroemeria. The stems are not long like the cut flowers that can be purchased in the floral department – it is a rather compact lovely thing. I wouldn’t mind having more alstroemerias (this one came from the hardware store last year).

Scarlet Monkeyflower

I picked up the scarlet monkeyflower (Mimulus cardinalis) at the garden show in 2012. It was one of the items in those unreliable Ziploc bags (I talked about the Ziploc bags in previous garden show posts), but as opposed to many plants, it did well.

Mimulus cardinalis is a native plant, and attracts hummingbirds. I put it in the swamp, and since the swamp is along a pathway, I don’t spend much time there – just pass through. So I think the hummingbirds sometimes use it and I don’t see. The co-gardener has seen hummingbirds feeding from the scarlet monkeyflower, and I think I saw it last year. I expected the plant to be red and it turned out to be quite orange, but that is ok. Right now the swamp is not especially colorful, so a pop of orange is not a bad thing (although the co-gardener is a little iffy about orange).

You can kind of see that I am having a problem with the tall straight juncuses – they are flopping over on everything. I may prune them, but I am still warming up to the idea (I’m a bit nervous).

I would like to have more native flowers in the garden… but one has to see them for sale (preferably not in the Ziploc bags – too iffy), and one has to have space.

Speaking of the Ziploc bags, I think the foxtail lily died. Also the European anemone. Those bagged perennials are just not reliable. I planted that foxtail lily (and the anemone for that matter) in the ground right away, and it was purchased from a reputable seller – but regardless, the foliage is yellow and looks quite dead. I’m going to say no to the Ziploc bags at next year’s garden show (in February).

Astilbes

Astilbes are popular shade plants, and we have four planted in the swamp (remember, the swamp is not really a swamp). There is another older one, but I am not sure what its name is.

White Calla Lilies, Japanese Irises, Tattling Fern

These pictures are not recent. In fact, the white calla lilies (Zantedeschia aethiopica) and the Japanese irises (Iris ensata) have stopped blooming. There are six tall white calla lilies and we planted two Japanese irises (they may have spread), and all are located in the swamp.

I took these pictures of the tattling fern (Athyrium filix-femina ‘Frizelliae’) before some perennials filled in, so now one cannot see it. It is on my agenda to move it somewhere else – it just doesn’t show. Right now it is in the woodland garden, but it might end up elsewhere.

I don’t know how I feel about Japanese irises: they seem a bit floppy. Like the blossoms flop. On the other hand, they seem to be doing better than the Siberian irises (what happened to those? I preferred them).

New June Plants

I am still catching up on some posts. These plants were purchased and planted in early June. For some of them I have included more recent photos, as well. We went to a variety of stores: nurseries, the everything store, hardware stores, the farm stand… I think I will only talk about some of the plants here, because about some I don’t have much to say: we liked them and thus bought them.

Salvia ‘Hot Lips’ is a plant that I’ve heard Ciscoe Morris talk about numerous times (hummingbirds apparently love it). We saw this one for a pretty reasonable price and bought it. It is questionable if it will survive over the winter – it could go either way.

I bought this agastache specifically for a pot. The co-gardener has a tall blue pot with pink flowers, and the salvias that were in it died over the winter.

I got a little tricked with this blue daisy plant. I bought it at the hardware store for a reasonable price, believing the “perennial” tag. Well, the tag didn’t say anything about temperatures, and so when I got home and looked up the plant I found that it isn’t hardy in our zone! I think the co-gardener knew this, but I was alone.

I have been collecting elfin thyme from many places… unfortunately, the least expensive places do not restock it – the amount they get in the spring is it. So, many places I bought up the remainder. Elfin thyme is going to be our lawn replacement. I am not sure if it is enough – but then again, the lawn isn’t out yet anyhow.

Masterworts

I took so many pictures of the masterworts that I figured that they need their own post. The two that are blooming, Astrantia major ‘Star of Fire’ and Astrantia major ‘Star of Royals,’ were purchased at the garden show last year and bloomed last year. The middle one, Astrantia major ‘Star of Billion,’ was purchased this year’s garden show and is not blooming.

These ones are variegated and nice, but quite difficult to photograph (I remember that from last year, as well).

Planted May

This does not cover everything planted in May, because earlier plants are in this post. Possibly I am forgetting something, but we are solidly into June now so it is time I post this. I talked about most of the plants in other posts (purchase posts), so I will just include photographs here.
