I can't compete with all the lovelies already posted, but I have a few humble July flowers to contribute. The first is (I think) Allium forrestii. I'm sure Todd will know if it's really something else!
Summer-time alpines...alpines of July
June, that allium is actually cyathophorum var. farreri..and it self-seeds like the dickens! Dead-head it immediately after the flowers finish!
I really like that little pink legume!
June, my goodness, I hope it doesn't seem like a competition! For me, believe me, it's an education! And you know what? I haven't even heard of any of your plants, so post on, please!
Ebenus... sheesh, I have to go look that up! The wonderful world of plants, hey?
Thanks for the ID on the Allium. I'd be happy if it would seed itself, but it's been flowering for three years now with nary a seedling in sight! There's no other Allium flowering near it, so could that be why it never sets seed?
June, here's a detailed description of A. forrestii, if you want to compare: http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=200027479
Thanks for the link. I suspect that my plant is a hybrid, as the nurseryman I got it from grows his stock from seed.
A couple from here:
A hardy perennial snapdragon starting to bloom, Antirrhinum molle, I think. But I've changed my mind so many times over the years... A. molle?, A. sempervirens? I dunno. It was bought as what I assumed would be annual bedding plants- 'Gummy' variety - but they lived on.
Pretty tall for the rock garden, but here's Codonopsis mollis. (I get a kick out of the skunky odor of codonopsis. And I find this quite funny too... I have a vining codonopsis that I've had for years but have never seen bloom... as soon as it gets tall enough to vine, it dives into the adjacent viburnum. I've only seen it's dried skeleton in winter, LOL!)
and a bright blue one sown as P. rydbergii but I expect it's really P. virgatus.
Great stuff! I just got back from am alpine plant collecting trip in northern Newfoundland...got two iceboxes of new plants for our crevice garden at work. Among the plants were Salix reticulata, S. arctophila, S. calcicola, S. glauca, S. vestita, Dryas integrifolia, Silene acaulis, Erigeron hyssopifolius, Solidago multiradiata, Draba norvegica, Arenaria longipes, Arnica lonchophylla, Saxifraga oppositifolia, S. aizoides, S. paniculata, S. caespitosa, Primula laurentiana, Anemone parviflora, Alchemilla minor..and a few others I can't recall! I'll post some pics of the great alpines I saw there once I get them organized.
