Bloomin' Tuesday...(anticipating blooms) HELP!

I planted, Larkspur, Lupine and Foxglove...........? Forgot what order. Which is this?

I think I have already been told that this is the Lupine, correct?

and this?
My first with Sweet Peas also....are they slow growers, do I need to do anything special? Do I need to fertilize them?
I think I put Cosmos here, wating on the true leaves for an ID.
I believe I put Convolvulus, blue enchantment -- Bush Morning Glory in the container.

The Rudbeckia's have always caused some confusion for me. I call them all Susan's, I know that is not fair. I have two types. Can't wait to compare the blooms. Here you see smaller greener leaves...
Here are the longer lighter green leaves....

Yes, this one is growing right in the edge of my mums.

I have garden envy to see all your seedlings starting up.
You are right, no fertilizer on the sweet peas.
Looking forward to seeing these flowers growing.

Peggy said...

It will be great fun wondering what is going to come up where! One thing is certain you will have lots of colour. I love sweet peas, the perfume from them is heavenly.

Suzanne said...

It must be wonderful to have all those blooms starting to come up! Having lived in Colorado the last 20 years, I can't imagine having Spring come so early. Must be heavenly!

Dani said...

I would never have thought of planting sweet peas! I wonder if they would do well this far south?

Hi Darla, the first one is larkspur, then lupine then foxgloves.. You are right on the morning glories, and susans, the first photo has the fuzzy leaves of the annual kind (here anyway). The larger ones, don't know. Sweet peas can use some osmocote or blood or bone meal. Cosmos babies are huge, those look like them. You are going to have some beautiful flowers.

I love seeing all those seedlings popping up! Are your sweet peas the same as sugar snap peas? I'm thinking about planting those on an arbor.

Hi Darla I haven't a clue about the first one but I would say Frances is right :-)
I enjoy to see it just because it's green... and kind of 'lush'

Thanks for stopping by to visit. It is so exciting when everything first starts coming up, before long you will have beautiful flowers. I love to play in the yard too!

Looks like you're going to have some great variety and color! I personally put bone meal in with anything growing early, when the soil is so cold. I love lupine, mine didn't do well last year, not sure why. I'll be sure to check back and look at all the color!

Dawn said...

Goodness the first one looks like gerainum to me! All are very nice.

Hi Darla, I love all your seedlings! You garden is going to be so beautiful and so colorful! My Mom has sweet peas growing wild on her fence. They are so beautiful and the sweet smell in the air is divine! She never plants seeds, they just reseed themselves and come back every year! She also gives them a little fertilizer for bigger blooms!
Happy Bloomin Tuesday, isn't it fun that spring is not that far away??

Your first one looks like the larkspur and you're right the other is the lupine. I just sowed my larkspur seeds, I hope I have as good of results as you have!

Carla said...

What great clear new growth pictures!! Please keep us posted as they grow!!

tina said...

You will soon have tons of blooms! Those seedlings look great!

Paula said...

I always love to visit your blog to see what new things you have going on- I think your plant ID is pretty accurate. Frances cleared up the ones you weren't sure on.

I plant sweet peas every year in early April. They are slow here, but worth it for the blooms they produce starting in July until it freezes. They are easy to care for. You have to keep the flowers cut before they go to pods or they will stop blooming.
I am anxious to follow your plants and see what they turn into!

You have so many sprouts coming uo.can not wait to see your Lupine and foxglove in blume.You are going to have a wonderful garden.

Lindab said...

Why be dull and label everything - this way you'll get some surprises!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Darla, I have no clue!!!!! I'm sure others will help you to identify them. I keep forgetting about all of that SANDY soil in Florida!!!!

Can't wait to see all of these as they grow and bloom.
Thanks,
Betsy

Jean said...

What fun you are going to have when all those unknown plants bloom! You sem to have good luck planting seed. I answered your question about pussy willows in mt comments. How fortunate you are to have everything growing! Jean

easygardener said...

You are going to have a wonderful show of flowers later in the season. Good to see you can sow directly into the ground. My seedlings would have been eaten by slugs and snails!

Gail said...

Can't wait to see your flower babies when they are ready to flower! It is exciting isn't it!

I would love to see a little green right now! You have so many great things in your yard!

Alan said...

Hey Darla,

I see you have lots of stuff coming up! It's always tough for me as well to figure out what everything is at first. After a while when everything gets bigger it starts coming back to me.

Valerie said...

Oh I just can't wait to see my garden. You make me long for springtime.

Leedra said...

You have the Lupine right. The last one could be a Coneflower, maybe a white coneflower, because the purple's leaves are darker. Jimmy always wants to pull it up as a weed, until it gets further along. I have to keep a good eye on him until late spring or I won't have anything.

Dee said...

It is so exciting watching the green leaves come up and anticipating the blooms!

Sue said...

I agree with Frances. I have larkspur, too, and have had lupines, so I know what the seedlings look like. I'm not sure about the last ones.

I see I got further behind in my blog reading than I realized. I've had lots of interruptions this week.

Are you going to post regular updates so we can see the growth of the seedlings?

flowergardengirl said...

I see Frances has gotten you all squared away. I like you just the way you are--full of wonder and anticipation. You don't have to know them to know how to grow them.
