This is my first bloom ever from a Foxtail Lily. It doesn’t quite look like the photo in the catalog, but the fact that they actually emerged and I got a flower is a miracle. They prefer well drained soil and will not tolerate drought. This area seemed to be the perfect spot in my opinion but I guess they didn’t think so. Out of 5 bulbs, this is the only one that sent up a flower stalk. Maybe come fall I’ll try relocating them to a different spot in this bed.
This is one of two Asiatic Lillies I grow in my garden. The other one’s name is long forgotten and it hasn’t bloomed yet. I really need to add more of these carefree plants to my garden this fall. Making a note now. 🙂
Last week I think I showed you one single bloom of this plant, but here’s a shot of the entire plant in full bloom. This will be the first time I had a Lavender overwinter. This area gets full sun all day and is well drained.
Here’s a better photo of the Evening Primrose I picked up at Wally World the other day. And look at that a bonus shot of some insect. Don’t know what that one is, do any of you? To see more Bloomin’ Tuesday posts or to join in this week please visit our gracious host Jean @ Ms Greenthumb.
