Lacecap blooms on Hydrangea serrata "Woodlanders."
My other lacecaps are H. Mariesii Variegata.
White Crape Myrtles are starting to bloom.
This one is underplanted with white LA Lilies for a cool look.
Verbena bonariensis is one of the cool purples in the landscape. Lantana montevidensis is just starting to bloom in lavender, and white. I plan to root more white for the white garden around the greenhouse.
Salvia farinacea 'Victoria' in its second
year, seed grown and planted out.
Sometimes it is hard to decide whether a flower is warm or cool color. In the shade, this looks more purple and much cooler.
Hibiscus syriacus. We always called it Althea.
You may know it as Rose of Sharon.
Madagascar Periwinkles are starting to come up where seed fell last fall. There is a white periwinkle with a purple eye blooming that was a Mother's Day memento from the Church.
What really gives me a feeling of coolness in the garden are all the greens from chartreuse to darkest emerald.
What are your favorite summer flower colors? Hot or cool?
