The Lisianthus were sown in early January, took a while to germinate and took forever for the seedlings to do much more after they were about 3/4 of an inch tall. They are just now beginning to bloom and were worth waiting for. We're leaving for Rehoboth Beach for about 10 days and I'm hoping that when we get back I'll get to see more of them and get some pictures. It's tough leaving the garden in the summer, but spending time with everyone together at the beach really does it for me.

Great link with alot of good info! I love Lisianthus, think they are so pretty and delicate looking, have only grown them twice. The 1st time they didn't do well, the second time they did great...almost afraid to try a third!! LOL

Here are a few lilies from me this morning...

I always think the same thing, Pixie. Do your lilies bloom all summer at different times. Do you plant anything to fill in the gaps after they're gone. I'm still looking for a good filler. This year I will have Cleome.

Those lilies are just beautiful! After I read the article on prairie gentian, I knew for sure I wouldn't try them again! Too much work...and as they are a flower of the prairie, New England gets too much rain for them to thrive...

Honestly JO, the red lily beetle did some heavy damage this year. Most of it may be my fault with spraying but it seems like there are alot more this year.
Look at the leaves on the lily and surrounding stalks...HORRIBLE!!!

Terri, I buy lilies that bloom from June to the end of Aug./1st of Sept here, I suspect it's my cooler evening weather that makes my lilies season last a little longer.
I use, phlox...again with different bloom times although most are in full bloom now, also astillbe's, black-eyed susan's, daisy, dahlias, blanket flowers of different colors, roses and iris that bloom at various times also.

Pizie Youve got a good thing going there.
I use Bayer Tree and Shrub 12 month and spray the ground around where the lilies are emerging.I look for those pink tops in April. We had a wierd year and beetles emerged before I could stop 'em. I had more this year too and believe the early spring is why.
I also use Sevin in mid season on leaves when I see a beetle.

Celeste, your flowers are amazing, and everyone who was on the previous thread, I don't often comment but I always enjoy looking at the beauty you nurture.

The first picture is a plant that my daughter in law gave me. It is not hardy here, but I love the look of it. Anyone know what it is? Usually sold as a pond plant as it likes wet feet, but does fine in my regular garden with watering.

2nd is Flora Danica rose. I transplanted it this spring, had a terrible job getting it out of the old spot as it was so close to the house, and I wasn't sure it would make it. The entire top died and when a new stem came up, I had to wait all this time to find out if it would be the hybrid or just a common rose from below the graft--turned out to be worth the wait.

3rd pic is Cupressus macrocarpa Wilma Goldcrest. Not hardy in Maine so I keep it in a pot in the sunroom for the winter. This year I tried it in a planter with Sedum rupestre Angelina and another common creeper that I don't have a name for. Can anyone supply it?

Dont tell me the Slippers wont make it. If they dont I will get Cardinals.in their place.

Those phlox are stunning.

I need some help with a white garden I am trying to put togeter for my 93 year old mother. I am trying to plan it so it will have something blooming at all times. It looks pretty sparse in these pictures but gives an indication of what I have so far. We have a large concrete statue of the madonna that I need to clean up and paint.
Perennials: Astilbe Bridal Veil, Japanese irises Henry's White and Anytus, Siberians - White Triangles, White Prelude. Gull's Wing, Fourfold White, Anniversary, Daylily Dad's Best White, Bearded Iris I Do and Immortality.
Annuals: Cosmos, impatiens and petunias. The petunias have spread a bit so I'll try to get a better picture of them with the Cosmos.

Thanks for all the suggestions. It's raining (Thank the Lord) so I haven't been able to get out to take any pictures yet . Yesterday I dug out my Shasta Daisy, needed to divide it so now I can put some there too. I can't grow Asiatics as I have moles/voles they love to eat them and they are too expensive to become part of the Mittsy's critter delicatesen. I'll look into the candytuft, I have some white violas in a planter. I could move them. Still need to look up a few more of the suggestions. Thank you so much for all your input. Crazy Lady Shasta type daisy

I'm with you on the weeds, they are just brutal. I noticed the goldenrod is starting to form flower heads and many of them are taller than I am, at a whopping 5'3". I have been diligently trying to tame this portion of the yard since May. I think I have to scale back what is humanly possible with only one human doing it all alone.
Most of the pictures have 5 gallon buckets ( for weed collection ) in them and the large brown 30 gallon container is for frogs, when I can't stand their noisy fighting I catch them and we transport them to another location. Even my sister and her husband complained about them this summer. At lst count we have moved 18 large dominant ones to the lake.

Is anyone getting reblooms? My 'Lincoln Star' clem, 'Oso Easy Cherry Pie' ' rose, 'Victoria Grace' had a lull and she back at it again. One of my Tradescantia is reblooming and 'Moonlit Masquerade' sent up a new scape and blooms, I don't remember it ever doing that before.

Bill, love the lotus; that pond/stream is just amazing. Everyone else, just because I don't mention you doesn't mean I don't think your pictures are awesome, it is just so hard to keep up! I took a few shots of the overall look of the gardens by the house this week. Wish I had thought to water the coleus before the picture was taken, this was before it rained! Last image is closeup of Thuja occidentalis Rheingold. I'll probably have to move it soon to give it more space. It has been a very well-behaved conifer, does well through the winter and always looks good.

Does anyone know if there is such a cultivar as a short white frilly Gladiola? 18" or shorter would be good.

I've been taking a break from these threads for awhile, as well as taking a break from gardening, as it's been so hot and humid, and I always get burnt out this time of year. Been busy doing other things, but this weekend I need to get weeding and mulching done. The weeds are taking over big time.

So many pics here. Everyone's flowers look great.

Celeste, this year I tried Ortho Bug-B-Gone for the lily beetles, as well as anything with caterpillars and such. It's a system pesticide, and it worked really well. I sprayed it after the first sign of the beetles, and had no trouble with the from then on. Worked like a charm! I just love your blue phlox. I must get some to add to my phlox garden. I really like that Cradle Of Bethlehem daylily. That Leda's Lover is really pretty, too. Looove Indian Ripple! I also love the Peppermint moss rose mixed in with the solid color ones. Really pretty combo there! Great photo of the spider in the heather.

I like that interesting pond plant, GG. I don't know what it is, but would like to get one. I have an area where the soil stays fairly moist where it would do well.

Neat spider web, Ronnie! When I lived in Fallon, NV we had soooo many spiders in our gardens and on our screened in porch, including black widows. I sure didn't mind all the spiders in the gardens, though, as long as they were the poisonous kind. Love your canna, MG and hibiscus shots.

Jo, I like the 'Ruby Slippers' lobelia. I have no lobelia in my gardens...yet! I must rectify that. That article on Gardening Gone Wild was great. Would love to have my gardens as part of a tour, though would have to do it after I retire, I suspect, as it would be so much work to get everything ship shape for that. Your deck garden looks great!

Celeste, I believe your tall ligularia is the one they call 'The Rocket'.

Congrats on the blooms on your lotus, Bill! Really pretty! I wish I had a big enough pond for them. I'm wondering if horticultural oil would work on the sawfly larvae on the hardy hibiscus. I used it successfully on the spider mites that were destroying a brugmansia of mine, as I had read that most conventional pesticides wouldn't work on them, and it worked really well. Only had to spray 2 or 3 times, a week apart each time.

Mittsy, for your white bed, how about some white creeping phlox for spring bloom? And some tall garden phlox 'David'. Plants with silver foliage look great in a white garden. Lamb's ear looks good, just cut off the blooms, which are purple. Makes a good ground cover, too. Also snow-in-the-summer (actually blooms in spring), which has silver foliage and white blooms. Candy Tuft is great for spring bloom. Also get some white crocus and white daffodils. If you have room for it, get a white butterfly bush. A good white daylily is 'Ice Carnival'. You're wise not to put in more than you can take care of. Hope you can resist putting in more. I couldn't, and am overwhelmed every year. I did not know that carbon monoxide could kill plants. Sorry you lost them. Good thing you're okay.

Doestaker, I like your glads and the Candy Cane mix zinnias. Also love that Leopard Lily. Are they the same as Candy Lilies? I have not grown them before.

Allison, your gardens and planters are looking so nice, and I love all the shots of the hummers. You have a great zoom lens. Do you set your camera on a tripod?

No thanks
I do have a group of friends who come in June for a afternoon of beverages ( they bring their own ) and cookies .Friends are forgiving of a weed or two.

Karen, thanks for the list of white flowers.

The squirrels are constantly digging and hiding their seeds and nuts. I thought I recognized the leaves on this one, so I left it and look what it turned out to be. I also noticed an unusual huge pale blue morning glory. The 4 o'clocks are beginning to bloom. And there are lots more buds on Prairie Biue Eyes!

Allison, I can see that the honeysuckle will slowly be coming back. The fumes from the generator were something other than carbon monoxide because of the terrible odor. The generator fumes do not get into to the house since the unit is stationed away from the exterior walls just off the lawn. Thanks for the offer of a new honeysuckle, but I think that I'm going to be ok with that. I can even see new grown at the base of the Crape Myrtle that I was going to pull out. I guess the fumes just kill what's above ground, but the plant is actually still alive.

Yes, it did look very casual from what I could see, Jo. I like your idea of having friends over for beverages and cookies. Those cookies are so cute. I remember you posting pics of them before. It's too bad that people have to think about suing others. So far I have not had any problems with the customers who come here to buy plants. It's always a concern, but I just pray that all will be well.

Nice, Mittsy! I like all of those.

Roses, fumes can have carbon monoxide as well as other stuff that stinks, just like your car exhaust. That stinks, but it also has the odor free CM. It's good your plants are coming back.

I'm gonna post some pics later.

Such wonderful pictures.
Karen, I just love that raspberry seedling. Love the color and the amount of blooms.

Bill, That butterfly is so beautiful against the white of the hydrangea. Super photo.
So awesome how you softened the effect by blurring the edges.
Did you intentionally mean STOP by stacking the stones next to the pond. (One of the things I learned when I was researching Japanese Gardens).

We patterned our fence and gateway after the Japanese Garden in San Francisco. Dardom or White Dome hydrangea.

it is a canon 70-300mm L series with stabilzation lens.

misty if you are talking about the stones in the foreground those are cairns built out of beach stones. here is a picture of them.

the blurred edges are from some petunia boxes on the deck that gave the blurred affect - did not touch the pictures up at all afterward - never do.

nice gateway.

Great shots, Bill. I was almost done. Stopped after that last set to watch some movies with my nephew and then did some reading, then watched some Dexter with my nephew. Lazy day for me.

Mittsy, I like the fence and gate. I've been to that garden in San Francisco. Really nice place.

Here are some more shots from July 23. Two shots of a Goldner seedling, All American Chief, a salmon colored seedling with pinched petals, Rainbow Towers.

Ronnie, you need some of the squirrels from my yard, they plant sunflowers for me, and peanuts, too!

Time to change the garden flag. Love this one but the Sunflowers are great, too.

This is a weird thing to post, but I love the variety of mosses and fungi on this tree stump. They have thrived partly because the adjacent ferns provide shade, and partly because I water the adjacent Japanese maple seedling periodically, and send some water to the stump also.

The other picture is a Japanese anemone, 'Pamina'. I had never had an anemone before I bought this last year, and I really like how the flower heads are so graceful above the foliage.

Very nice coleus Jo!
I think you may have I.D. my anemone, 'Pamina looks more like the one I have than the name they gave me. I always suspected it was labeled wrong, now im almost positive!!

Here are a few still blooming this past week...

Zella Virginia
Balloon Flower ~ These are almost invasive here this year...you wouldn't believe the babies I have!!!!!
Extravaganza Lily ~ this is one bulb in a pot that didn't get planted in time. It has 7 flowers on one stem!

I. , 2., and 5 are all flowers from my radish's The white flower went with the white radish which was very mild. Pale purple went with the lighter purple radish and the flavor was med, the darker colored flower went to the darkest radish and that one was on the warm side. I found this very interesting but not sure if the color flower really has anything to do with how hot the radish will be. Anyone know?
3. & 4.) Purslane ~ Allison got me hooked on these last year, they are just stunning!

1&2) "Cradle of Bethlehem" ~ I am awed at the size and color of this daylily and the fact that it is a late season bloomer is a bonus!
3.) False Shamrock 'Atropurpurea'
4.) Agastache 'Heatwave' ~ it has survived it's 1st winter here and on it's second summer, hope it fills out some.
5.) Phlox and little white crab-spider
