It’s that time of the week again when we show what blooming in our gardens. This Amsonia ‘Blue Star’ is such a pale shade of blue that it photographs as white. It was a new addition in 2009 from a Master Gardener’s plant sale in Yorktown. I may live to regret this Evening Primrose since it seems to be prolific reseeder so far. But luckily I’ve been able to contain it somewhat in a corner of my garden where nothing else seems to thrive. Rosa ‘Bonica is a climbing rose that has nicely fragrant flowers, but is prone to blackspot unfortunately. I love my ‘Nelly Moser’, she’s the first clematis that I ever purchased and is always the last to bloom.
The alliums have begun to put on their spring show and one of my favorites is this nectaroscordum which is commonly called Mediterranean Bells. A new addition this past fall was ‘Pink Jewel’. It’s the first and only pink tall allium according to Brecks which is where I purchased it of course. So far the buds are tightly closed but I’m sure it will be stunning in another few days or so. I’ve had Nigrum and Unifolium in my garden for a few years now and they are very reliable bloomers each spring. Other than my Amsonia the theme this week seems to be pink.
