The month for all the perennials to really start up and we should see some beautiful things on this thread.
All are welcome to show pictures, as we have said before Mid South, is more a state of mind than a location, and all beautiful flower pictures are welcome !

By the way Sandra the one I had marked Sammy russell is Hyperion. A new bloom opened today and it definitely has a very sweet smell.

Charlotte---I don't think I have ever seen Hebrew Maiden--that is beautiful. Yes it is so much fun to get their pictures and see them bloom. Be sure you add them to a photo sharing site, with their names, like Picasso or Photo Bucket. Then if you lose tags, you will have a permanent record to search--it will also help if you date it--but sometimes if you move then around they won't bloom close to the same date. I have Condillia but it is in the shade and it has just now put up a scape, where yours is already blooming.
I am having a lot of splotchy blooms open too, they get better as they open.
This is an example--that is why you see so many daylily people label theris FFO--first flower open, because we know it is going to get better !
This is Jay Thurman FFO

I love the doubles. Here's Bogie and Bacall which I adore. It always reminds me of a kiss--perhaps it's those lipstick stains.

I have a double called Well All Right that never doubles for me. It has a huge pink bloom but it's really nothing spectacular. If I don't get doubles this year, it's outta here. I'm just not going to have a lazy freeloader in my gardens!

No I don't have Long Stocking that I know of--this is just one fan, and it may have been one of the ones that I brought home from Cindy's last fall with lost names on them. It is beautiful, whatever it is, I think it will probably measure 10" at least

KA - your yard must be totally amazing! So many beautiful blooms! I am going to be kicking myself for not making it this weekend...

That Red Eyed Fantasy is beautiful... never heard of it before - and I like the Bogie and Bacall too...

Headed home now to check out what is blooming!

Boy, ya'll really started out things with a beautiful bang! Love all of them, but I particularly liked Bogie and Bacall.

I hope a question or 2 isn't too off-topic here, but I need some ideas for what to do with Lavender. I have a good crop this year, which is weird because it's been so wet.

Also, my sweet basil looks pitiful and is dropping leaves. Looks like it may indeed be too wet. Anyone else having a few problems like this? Everything else looks great...I picked my first cukes today and have picked 4 squash in the last couple of days. I also ordered a couple of those $3.50 'Bama Music' daylilies today. Thanks KA for the link to that site. Or maybe I should say darn you for making me buy more plants, LOL!!

I will have to see if I can find that site KA ... just what I need to do, order more plants! I have already got plants from the hibiscus coop still on my porch trying to get them going in pots before I put them in the ground! The bluestone plants have already went in the ground, plus the plants from FHs and Jeri's RU... :)

Do any of you know what this is? I got the seed from a lady last summer. The plant was in her butterfly garden but she didn't know what it was. I winter sowed the seed and they actually grew. Mine is about 20 inches tall right now. I'm remembering her's to be a much taller plant. Of course mine is still very new.

Meant to say it has been there several years and has spread among the fern. The squirrels have also taken some of it to an entirely different bed.

Charlotte, of course i have no idea what your mystery plant is but it sure has a lovely bloom. Is it a vine? or just a freestanding plant?

Love those daylilies you purchased. You really have some pretty ones!

butterfly chaser I think you may be right - I bought those from Gilbert Wild years and years ago and I have never been that impressed with them. Everyone is always talking about FTPink but I've never been a big fan. Plus I have been super upset that they have never rebloomed for me - now I guess I know why:( I had some other ones that were catherine woodbery from Walmart but I never compared them and those were in the shade). I have been sharing those for years as Fairy Tale Pink so out there somewhere are a bunch of mislabeled plants:(

I even got some FTPink in a trade this year and I gave them all away since I already had tons of them. ARGHHHHH!

And your Pure & Simple does look just like my NOID and I really like that one!

Sandra, you have some real beauties! Frilled Enchantment is awesome. I'll have to add that to my wish list. This fall I intend to buy some Japs and LAs and I'm keeping a list of what I like.

Karen, I don't buy my daylilies at Walmart, Lowes or Gilbert Wild or some of the other discount places like that because they're usually mislabeled. They often just take any pick daylily and label it Catherine Woodbery or whatever. I do buy a lot from Ebay, Lily Auction, and from different co-ops and classifieds here at DG. I still get a misnamed one now and then, but usually everything is who it should be. You can go to Tinkers Gardens to the "database" and type in the name of your daylily and view info and other pictures to compare yours to. I do that with all my daylilies to be sure it's who it should be.

Sandra, I understand misplaced tags. I've had some construction workers here over the past year helping me build a fence and some structures for my gardens. They aren't the least bit concerned about the plant marker the air hose is wrapped around or where the marker went when they jerked on the hose. I have found some markers bent over into the ground with mulch dumped on top of them too. So at least those plants remain named. People just don't understand our marker "fetish" I guess.

Kathy Ann and Sandra win the prize! The plant I'm trying to ID is in the impatiens family. Several people have given me several names and all are similar but not sure if they have hit the exact one yet. I found a seed pod on one of the plants today and it looks like a celandine poppy seed pod. From what I've read it very easily reseeds itself so I might have a new type impatiens invasion!

she's just sooo pretty and a good multiplier.there's over 8 fans from 2 planted in the fall of 08...the ones on the opposite side of the bed need to be moved..I think it stays too moist in that part of the bed for them...but i'm waiting for it to bloom first...Already moved the others that were planted with them...
But these ones will stay there as their doing good...

I have 3 hydrangeas in bloom, some unnamed blue one, the lady in red and forever & ever endless summer and the peppermint one. I got a new one in memphis that looks alot like Alice oakleaf but it's labeled something else, it has a bloom, I put it in full sun too.

I always thought hydrangeas do well in full sun, I guess not. my lime light thrives in full sun. bu tthe vareigated lace cap never blooms cause it's in full sun.

Sandra - love that Betty Warren Woods...

Phylis that Virga is beautiful too! I wish my iris would multiply like that ... I have some that I just planted last fall that I got from IrisLover Dee and almost all of them have grown well and bloomed this first year... I have some others that I purchased from another DG (all in the same bed) and they have been in the ground for 3 yrs- most have died, or not grown hardly any and I think only 1 out of 20 have bloomed. I have decided that if they don't bloom next spring they are coming out of the bed! I just keep thinking they would catch on but they haven't... and then when those did so well that I purchased last fall, plus Bonnie gave me some last year that bloomed - i figure they must not be any good...but I have no idea why not!!

Kathy Ann, I realized I got a cambridge scarlet monarda at Jeri's... although the tag is not marked who it is from... Maybe from Marilyn?? Anyway, I guess when it blooms I can compare it to my one that is blooming... the one i have that is blooming might be Jacob Cline - no idea. I know I had it marked but I can't find the tag anywhere - either the chicken or the deer promptly moved it for me during the winter I guess!!

Love those chartreuse leaves. Chartreuse is my favorite color this summer. I keep buying things with bright green leaves. They show up so good in the garden.

I like the leaves on that Lemon Daddy as well... what type of bloom does it have. That folage sure stands out!

Got that Isle of Zanzibar while I was Cindy's on the way to Jeri's and it is actually trying to bloom!

Yeah, I can't do that raised look for the foundation planting though because I am on pier and beam... think it would send too much of the water under the house. I had 'wanted' my large circular bed raised, but I don't think we could have ever gotten enough soil to have raised it like I wanted! I started out bringing in dirt and manure, etc and thought I would raise it up like that but they would dump a load and I would move it a 1/2" or less when I got it all spread out, so I basically gave up and decided that IF i wanted any money left for flowers, it was going to have to stay flat! :-) If I had access to good loads of compost and mulch at a reasonable price it wouldn't be such a big deal! I get so frustrated at our city dump because they have huge piles of limbs, leaves, etc but they don't do ANYTHING with it !!

Terrye's whole place is beautiful--she has so many huge pretty beds and they all do so well for her. We have threatened to beat her for her secret-but she just will not give it up

I doubt anybody gets in trouble for chatting on this thread--how could we see so many pretty flowers and not talk about them??

Kathy Ann did give us Oriental Eyes, I still have the list of the ones she shared with us, just don't have all the plants--lol--some survived and some did not.

lol with Genna. You do need that DL.

My bed is actually in a natural swag in the ground but we bumped it out in the back last year and Ray brought in some dirt and mulch with the tractor to fill in. Then I wound up moving the fence to the back and it gave the bed the two levels. So, I didn't actually plan it that way but I like the way it turned out. lol. Plus I mulch it heavy every year because it does not get watered at all. That's gradually built it up more.

Here's a few more hydrangeas I have blooming now.

Haven't had time to make any pics this week. DGD's swim meet last night (she did great and was voted 'Swimmer of the week' by her coaches at their neighborhood pool). Tonight I attacked the veggie garden...tying up tomatoes, spraying fungicide, fertilizing, weeding. Whew. AND...Yipppeee!!! My new computer arrived today, so I'm sending this from my brand-new laptop!! Our old desktop was getting to be a dinosaur so we decided to get a laptop. Love it so far but it's still early. It's been very easy to set up but I still have a few things to do.

Y'all will have to educate a poor soul about DL's...what is a 'spacecoast'? Does this denote a particular breed type? I've seen you all post so many pretty DL's, I'll need to dig up the entire yard and plant DL's if I'm not careful!! Beautiful stuff this year. Monarda, cleome, buddleia and Shasta daisies are beginning to bloom.

Charlotte, your blooms are so beautiful ... it is hard to believe those are all new plants! You really chose some beautiful ones... I love the Spacecoast ones too... those ruffles are so beautiful! I think I only have one or two - and I got them from some of ya'll... is there a place to buy reasonable priced space coast ones?

By the way, KA, I FOUND the tag tonight on that dark red monarda... it is the Jacob Cline - and it came from Marilyn... the tag was thankfully pushed way into the ground and the chickens had just buried it - not pulled it out. Now that I know what it is I can put one of the metal tags on it. I usually plant most plants (except for the DLs) with the blind tag until I see that it is going to live - then I make it a permanent tag... LOL I also have the Stone's Throw Pink on the opposite end of the bed that should be blooming any day. Does the Monarda continue to bloom all summer? I have never had it before. Then I have that cambridge scarlet in a different bed... so guess I will be enjoying monarda if they all continue to live.

Terrye, that blk stem hydrangea is pretty. I planted all my hydrangeas that I got at the Fall RU last year at the North end of my house... keep having dreams of that entire wall being covered with hydrangeas but it must be going to take years!!! They are only about 6" tall!! LOL... but at least MOST of them are still alive!!

Elaine - congrats for the gd's swimming accomplishments! My niece and nephew used to compete in swimming and I loved watching the meets. I was always a poor swimmer so I was amazed at how well everyone could swim...
And congrats on the new computer... ours is a dinosaur too so I TOTALLY understand - and you can't even buy additional ram for it! (well at least without spending almost as much as a new computer would cost!) MAYBE someday I can get a new one! Of course, with one in college and two more headed that way, I suspect that I may have my wall covered with hydrangeas LONG before I get a new computer...LOL

Terrye and Sandra - hope ya'll have a safe, fun journey tomorrow... hate that I won't be able to see you both, but I will be green with envy on Saturday! Ya'll have fun and eat some dessert for me! Sandra, you remember last year at Debra's you had me eat cake for you - so you owe me one!

My list says Darling Anita but it could easily be a typo.

Genna, Bonnie steered me the right direction for buying day lilies. She knew what she was talking about! She told me to watch the classified's on DG and I could get some good buys. I just did what she told me!LOL I started watching and bought my first the middle of July. The last ones I bought the first of Sept. When I got them I just put them in pots until I could get my bed ready and it cooled down some. I kept the pots in a sort of shady area. I paid anywhere from $3 to $10. I only bought three for $10. The spacecoast one, Hebrew Maiden and Wilson Spider. Most I paid $4 or $5 for. I bought from 4 different people and was very please with what I got from each. Most plants had 3 fans, some more. Everyone sent bonuses - usually about 3.

I'll forget I've got a plant sometimes and then it blooms and I get a pleasant surprise! lol (My beds are a jungle as you can tell!) Hate you can't be there. maybe we'll see layer on in the fall.
I'll eat cake for you too! lol

KA, Found the tag today for that Japanese iris I posted earlier. It's Epimetheus. Is that one of yours?

Charlotte, you do have a beautiful collection of DLs.

Here's a new penstemon I found at Lowes the other day. Phoenix Magenta
Saw these flowers and had to have it.

Let's see...
I got most of my serratas at GardensOyvey. Several came from Nina's ( Nina used to have an iris and lily farm close to Aberdeen Ms) The rest just came from different nurseries here and there plus some I got from others here on Midsouth. I've only got one new one this year and that's Twist and Shout. I imagine I will change that tomorrow at GardenOyvey. lol

Lowes had a purple one just like that, KA but I didn't notice the name. I should have gotten one of both but I was trying to be good. Being good always gets me in trouble and I regret it later. lol

WE didn't get to go there when we went to memphis not long ago. in the past that I have been to oyvey I never looked through all their shrubs before.

I've been more into the shrubs in the past year than I ever have in the past. now if I don't quit buying them my yard is goin g to start looking junky LOL

I think I might have to move all those hydrangeas down the side of my house, im thinking they won't like the sun.

I'mthinking about putting all limelights down the side of the house. that's by the drive way. I wanted to do this down the side of the shop but Danny won't let me plant anything over there by "HIS " shop.

Oh what a sight to look out your back window and see a bear standing there
it's what every one should have the joy of waking up to...LOL NOT
I see nothing beautiful in them anymore...
I was just getting ready for my morning daily walk...LOL Not happening today...
No I didn't get a picture of the Bear..I went to get Gary instead...BUT
Gary was slow getting downstairs... but I had him shoot anyway in the direction the bear went in..
hoping just the sound scared him...Who knows... I don't know how far buckshot travels..
And he wasn't moving none too fast..
by his tracks in the wet grass he was checking out the bird feeders again..
yes I went out to look after he left..and to get a picture of those lilies again...
They look better when lots are opened up at the same time...
Gary asked how big was he...how the heck should I know..they all look the same
to me when i'm inside..unless their babies...now when I see them and i'm outside that's another story...LOL
Maybe 3 feet tall on all 4's..pound wise I have no idea...Not good at that sort of thing..

I'm trying to decide if this new NOID daylily is the same as the one that bloomed in another bed earlier in the week. What do you guys think

Good grief Phyllis, I wouldn't want to walk with a bear around either, that's way too dangerous.

You can't trust what their goin g to do next. I would not like that at all. Not knowing if I could go out side and look around either would drive me nuts. I'll take deer, moose, and other wildlife any day over bears
