Lilium superbum (Turk’s Cap Lily)
There are some real gems appearing in the July garden.
The Turk’s Cap lily is inherited, a glorious surprise.
Rose ‘Pat Austin’
Roses are in their prime right now.
Rose ‘Alpine Sunset’
Alstroemeria ‘Princess Diana’
Cosmos atrosanguineus ‘Chocamocha’
This one not only looks like chocolate, it smells like it too.
Campanula punctata ‘Pantaloons’
Penstemon ‘Apple Blossom’
Dierama ‘Guinevere’ (Angel’s Fishing Rod)
Up on the bank..
Cornus kousa ‘Wieting’s Select’
Philadelphus ‘Belle Etoile’
A shrub with a truly gorgeous scent.
I thought I’d end with an update on progress over the last few days.
Not only has the heat been hard on the gardener, it’s baked the ground solid. Before long I’ll be adding a pick axe to the kit bag.
Slowly but surely.
