The Hydrangea ‘Limelight’ is still going strong and putting out new blooms. You can see the green tint to the undersides of the blossoms in the sunlight. Somehow I ended up with an abundance of Lirope Muscari in my garden this year. But the purple blooms are nice at this time of the year when some things are starting to fade or look worn out from the heat.
Verbena “Blue Vervain” a native plant to my area has been blooming on and off for the past couple of month. The Butterfly Bush is attracting butterflies and bees with it’s honey scent and gorgeous white blossoms. I have to deadhead it weekly to keep the blooms coming.
My Crepe Myrtle is still in full glory at this time of the year and the Clematis “Sweet Autumn” is setting buds and here is the first little flower of the season. I have to really keep this one in check or it will ramble all over the garden but since it blooms on new wood it isn’t an issue.
Here’s another shot of my Four o’ Clocks. I liked how this flower was half pink & yellow. Some are solid pink, solid yellow and my favorite is the yellow splashed with splotches of pink. The Hosta “Royal Standard” is in full bloom now. The buds are lavendar and when they open the inner flower is a snow white and so fragrant. I love how the sunlight is making these blossoms glow in this picture. This is the one Hosta that isn’t stressed out from the heat right now.
