June! So many blooms, so little time for you to see them all. Gardenias are winding down. I posted the best of Gardenias around the first of the month. Crape Myrtles are well into bloom. They will still be blooming here next month when you visit.
Orienpet lily Orania and a white Oriental that I don't remember planting. It might be Versailles. These are the most spectacular in bloom now. Trumpets, LA lilies and other Orientals are also beautiful in June, many have already finished here.
Hydrangeas tend to droop in the heat but perk up when the sun goes down. Oakleaf Hydrangeas have finished bloom and heads are dry, visible at bottom right. Blue color gives away that our soil is acid.
Livin' Easy, a good theme for June. Julia Child, buttery yellow. Charisma, hottest color in the sun.
These are only a quarter of what is blooming. I wanted to show you Mexican Hats, Salvia farinacea, Daylilies, Tithonia, Agapanthus, Pentas, Brazilian Ruellia and Gladioli. I know you have limited time before you move on to so many other GBBD sites. I saved back some glorious foliage for tomorrow's Foliage Followup.
Flowers and text are from the garden of Nell Jean at http://www.seedscatterer.blogspot.com/ in the hot, humid depths of Southwest Georgia USA where the temperature on Monday at 2pm was 100.8 Fahrenheit degrees. My biggest disappointment is the failure of my Kniphofias to bloom.
GBBD is hosted by Carol of May Dreams Gardens. May Dreams lead to June's Realities.
