And....here are some additional ones that popped up today, May 4...who knew it was International Star Wars Day? May the 4th be with you!!!
The first is just a really good example of Wing Commander from the "other side" of the garden. It's weird to me how different the appendages can appear (and intensity of the color) from one bloom to another a week or so apart even on the same plant! The one on the right is a second stalk of bloom from a plant on the opposite side of the garden. The first time it bloomed, it looked more like the new bloom on the left.
Then there is Thornbird. Last year, this same variety was pretty boring in color. I relocated some and I think this one has beautiful colors.
Another one that came out for the first time this year is one that I had previously identified as "Carnival in Rio". But when it came out today I'm wondering if I've got that right. Any help appreciated. The left photo is from the web. The right is mine.
And, lastly...can anyone identify this one that seems to be popping up all over my garden. The intensity of its color seems to be fairly variable.
