Summer Ornamentals.

Ning's lilies, with lavender in the foreground, and a lupine in the background.Triteleia "Queen fabiola". These grow from little bulbs. Last year I thought that the grass-like leaves were weeds and cut them all off. They bloomed anyway. This year I was more careful.
Farfugium japonicum "Crested Leopard". What a great name - "farfugium". I'd want it even if the plant wasnt very cool. It likes the northern exposure. slugs love it too, but the "garden safe" slug bait (ferrous phosphate) is a nice organic way to handle the little pests.
