Good old Kwanzo with its 3 sets of petals/tepals. Here
always, has come into summer bloom.
This is a good year for Kniphofia, which started bloom in
May. They would clash with Purple Coneflower were it
not for the gold cones of the Coneflowers.
Orange species Gerberas. I have orange, pink and white.
The white are relegated to the back gardens with other whites.
Byzantine Emperor. I like it under pink Brugmansias.
I'm waiting to see if volunteer Periwinkles are going to be
white or some shade of pink. Last year they were white.
Laura Bush petunias seed around in odd places, probably
because the seeds are so fine. Here they came up with
common dog fennel.
Hibiscus syriacus nameless cultivar
There was a time when we had many H. syriacus, which we call Althea. Most were single blooms in various white, pink and lavender shades. They tend to seed about and were not long-lasting. I've had this one for years. It gets late evening sun.
The back areas around the greenhouse I am trying to grow mostly white flowers, with the exception of the Calla Lily Surprise yellow. This Althea is the only shrub with deeply colored flowers and it's not in sight of the Callas.
When I look back at previous years, everything looks almost the same except that trees and shrubs get bigger. Digging and moving plants is not one of my favorite garden tasks.
