A place for members to share photos of their gardens and seasonal blooms, fruit, leaves, veggies, etc. Green Grin!

I don't have many June photos, yet, but here is Begonia boliviensis 'Bossa Nova White'. I saved the tuber from last year. Smiling

So, what beauties are blooming in your gardens?

Who has the first ripe tomato of the year? Green Grin!

I have lapsed in taking photos and likely missed the peak in many. The columbines have already spilled their seed

I have been gone for a month, and it rained all last night and rained hard again this morning so the photos of the blooms are not the best, but it does show some of the things blooming at this time of the year.

I do have some begonia, but none shown above. Maybe you were referring to the Purple Kiss Phlox?

Danita had the begonia in the first post. Is your phlox an annual phlox or perennial? I love the color. Lovey dubby Also, do you know that name of your first lily? I think I have that one, but I don't see a label for it. I'm sure it's an asiatic. How about your last lily photo? Do you know the name of that one? Congrats on your tomatoes and peppers. They look so yummy. nodding

Ooh, love that white begonia in your opening picture, Danita. I have a bunch of the Rex type, most not blooming just yet but those tuberous ones just can't take the relentless humidity here. They never make it through the summer.
Thumb of 2016-06-05/dyzzypyxxy/41bcfd
I don't count in the "first tomato" race because I'm nearly picking my last tomatoes now. They peter out here once the nights get warm. I keep them going right through the winter, though. My mangoes will be ripe in another couple of weeks! Oh, and I have peppers that have been bearing steadily since November:

My daylilies are nearly a month late this year Shrug! maybe it's because winter never arrived until after Christmas so they never got a rest. Siloam Double Classic is a double peach and fragrant, Moonlit Masquerade is the gorgeous ivory/purple and the big orange one is a NOId. (my paw in there to show the size)

Deebie,
Sorry, I did not realize she was posting about Danita's begonia, but it is indeed very lovely.
My first lily shown was Royal Sunset, the second one is Triumphator, but the next two were purchased as bulbs in a mix and I do not know the names of them.

I found this cute little native orchid in my yard, Spiranthes.

Begonia 'Corallina de Lucerne' is blooming in a pot.


These Hydrangeas in my Mom's yard are from cuttings (ground layering, technically,) that I started & put there.

Thanks for the ID Larry. I wish that I had the ID of the Royal Sunset earlier, as I bought some more, not remembering that I already had it. I need to make a label for the one in the ground. I may need to move it, as something tall (either Siberian Iris or crinum leaves, I don't remember which offhand) is crowding it out. The others are in pots. I thought that I recognized Triumphator. I bought that one a few months ago as well. I can hardly wait to see them bloom. nodding

This is the daylily Hemerocallis Bela Lugosi. For the last several days she's opened one flower at a time. I think she must be enjoying the 24 hour, gentle rain we've had and is really popping now.

Rosie, TY! The deer around here don't come in town. They're probably hiding most of the time.

I want to keep track of what's what after they quit blooming. One color is for the Bela Lugosi and the other color is for the fulva Kwanso. I might sell some in the fall and I have to keep track.

Ken, I just dug up a large clump of Brocaded Gown and Kwanso or Flore Pleno that had grown together. Last year I tried to dig out all the Kwanso looking plants from that bed, but a few managed to regrow. Even after digging them out completely and washing them off to the bare root, I was barely able to salvage any of the Brocaded Gown. However I had three nice fans of the Kwanso looking plant. My wife insisted that I replant them, they are her favorites off all my daylilies. So I would advise separating those plants with some distance between them or the Kwanso plants may just overpower the Bela Lugosi.

Thank you so much for the advice, Larry. I had no clue. I will separate them this fall. I guess that would be the best time to do this? I will build a box and sink it 4" into the ground to keep them separated.

Yes fall is a great time to divide daylilies in the south, I waited until Oct. last year and it worked out the best ever for me. Of course we can't count on winters being so late and so mild every year. I think the second week in September would be the more normal time.
