'Blackout' Asiatic Lily
Blackout is planted in the Fiesta Garden with
a red Daylily that may be Superlative.
Or Kent's Favorite II? No matter, a nice red.
The Fiesta Bed was originally called by the fanciful name of 'The Red Bed' but it was hard to fill it with all red in the manner of Gotta Garden who gardens in the midwest and planted a truly RED bed where everything blooms together.
I compromised by adding oranges and yellows and sometimes blues and pinks. This bed doesn't really get going until mid-summer when the tropicals bloom. This spring it does have more red promises.
My tomato patch is in a line with the Fiesta bed.
Tomatoes might be red by next month.
The Red Bed could use some Old Red Daylilies and dark Cannas.
One of the lessons in gardening that came hard for me was that what looks grand in a photograph from a different part of the country may not work out in my zone.
Speaking of different zones, Tootsie Time is back. Go, Flaunt Your Flowers this Friday and see what's left in her greenhouse: lots of lovely flowers. See too, what's blooming all over the world.
