Interesting Mix of Flowers

A few new varieties this week that I haven’t shown before and there are some old favorites as well.

I am what I call a haphazard gardener. I say that because I don’t usually plan where my plants go. I don’t have a garden design plan. I know all the gardening books always suggest gardeners have them but I don’t. I just haphazardly plant them wherever I think I have room for them. Now that is crazy and dangerous so don’t do what I did or you may end up with a beautiful jungle! The worst part of it is I don’t keep track of the names of plants that I grow either. I really should because that would make it easier for me to identify most of my plants. I did try looking up the names of the plants below but a few were in a mix so it is hard to get the exact names. All I can say is just enjoy them for their beautiful colors and forms.

Poppies

The poppies below were grown in a seed starting tray. At some point I had plant labels but it either got lost or the words faded away so it is difficult to know who is who here. This one below is incredibly CUTE with its lavender and white colors. I have never seen one like this before and I really love it.

The bee and its white poppy!

This looks to be the Shirley Double Poppy seeds.

Four O’clocks

These Four O’clock plants are sprouting everywhere and normally I would oppose such invasions in the garden but these plants produced such beautiful, abundant flowers. Below is one of my favorite colors. I have a bright pink one in my yard too but I didn’t get a chance to get pictures for this post. This was grown from seeds and it has grown so big. The bush below is about 3 feet tall.

Kirigami Ornamental Oregano

This ornamental kirigami oregano is the cutest little thing! I love the different shades of lavender, pink and green. It flowered happily when I had it in the ground a few years ago but after I moved it into a pot it has been kind of lackluster! I was lucky this time to get some nice colors here.

liLY TREES

I love lilies! I’ve had these the year before and they are coming back again this year with double the blooms and height. These have a lovely fragrance.

Nicotiana Lime Green

These are really lovely lime green flowers. It would look great with any groups of flowers in the yard, a nice accent.

Dianthus

Sweet Potato Vine Green

This potato vine is one of the few potato vines that have colors. I love these groundcovers. They have potatoes growing out at the roots but they are not edible.

DAYLILY

Columbine

That’s all for now! I will have some new flowers to share next week!

  1. Almost all poppies seen here are red or orange. They grow at the sides of the fields and on roadside verges near here, and also among some crops. Those in your photos are unusual and exotic. 🙂
    Thank you very much for following my blog.
    Best wishes, Pete.
