Early July Cottage Garden 2013

Cottage Garden

Achillea filipendulina 'Coronation Gold' (fernleaf yarrow), Geranium 'Patricia' (cranesbill), Phlox paniculata 'Robert Poore' (garden phlox), Cleome. Two years ago I bought Cleome hassleriana 'Spirit Merlot', a deep purrple. It seeded and now I have clemones in several colors. The one in the picture is 'Appleblossom'. July 15

Rudbeckia hirta 'Autumn Colors' (gloriosa daisy). I thought I lost this plant because it succumbed to some sort of disease last year, but it seeded and came back. July 15

Lychnis coronaria (rose campion). Under it is a newly planted Anemone hupehensis var. japonica 'Prince Henry' (japanese windflower). July 15

Geranium 'Patricia' (cranesbill). In the bottom middle is a salvia cross. July 15

Delphinium grandiflorum 'Blue Butterfly' (dwarf Chinese delphinium). I lost the one I had last year due to a wet winter. July 15

Hemerocallis 'Lyndell's First' (daylily). This was planted last fall. July 15.

Sedum spurium ‘Fuldaglut’ ('Fulda Glow'). Newly purchased this year. July 15

Centaurea montana (mountain bluet). This has bloomed all spring and summer this year. I'll be thining it out come fall, as I have a few too many at this point. July 15.
