more July blooms..........

The photos above show Gene Walker and Midnight Country Blues.
Below are photos of Siloam Holland's Choice, a BIG flower but very short and pale. What I prefer are very bold bright colors, and having Siloam Andrew Trotter on both sides of the house gives some shine and attention getting from the street. :)

Below are photos of Princess Otahki and a seedling . I may have posted some of these flowers before, but I think these are different photos. :P

flowers and plants SUnday...........................................:)

I smile at this planter about every morning, cuz I'm happy with the grouping of colors. I bought all these plants at a nursery in St. Louis during Regionals. Wishing Well salvia, dark burgundy coleus, peachy salmony verbena and lemon licorice plant. hope they keep filling it. :)
below is a splothcy Siloam John Holland but I liked how it was hugging up to the balloon flower this morning. and next is Midnight Aura with some Heuchera, and Lake Norman Spider.

Below are photos of Lightning Flash coreopsis, you should grow this somewhere sunny just for its leaf color, really brightens up the center of the garden. :)  and finally BIG BIG Siloam Goliath. I'm still trying to get the pollen to stick to something, alas. ha
