|Tuberous begonias. 6.7.15|
I planted the tuberous begonias about 2 months ago. Some are just beginning to grow, others a few weeks. I thought some were dead but they all came up. Today they got a little flower plant food.
I planted a historic daylily into the front border. This area by default is becoming a bed for rescued daylilies. I don't have the names for most of them.
|Rescued Daylily Bed. 6.7.15|
|Small Yellow Daylily. 6.7.15|
|First nasturtium. 6.7.15|
|Second Year Growth, Four O'Clock. 6.7.15|
|Four O'clock Seedlings. 6.7.15|
|In Ning's Meadow. 6.7.15|
|Milkweed Seedlings. Asclepias syriaca. 6.7.15|
The nasturtiums have opened their first flowers. The leaves are nice and succulent. The leaves have a delicious peppery flavor.
Four O'clock seedlings are starting to grow. There are also volunteer seedlings.
Four O'clocks that were close to the house, survived the winter. Re-growth started late, but they are very stout and vigorous, and quickly passed the new seedlings in size and vigor.
Zantedeschia are in a shady area. Most are in their first year. I have one container of Zantedeschias that I've grown for about 25 years. That older one is not blooming yet.
Milkweed / Asclepias syriaca are growing slower than I expected. Maybe as summer heats up they will take off. I don't expect them to bloom this year.
Ning's meadow is looking beautiful, full of flowers and pollinating insects.
