Bloomin' Tuesday...

Dahlia Caladiums are coming up--Buck


This Lupine was in a wildflower packet that I put out in December.

Another mixed container with Red Fountain Grass, Mezoo Doreanthus, Luna Alyssum and Gold Celosia

More wildflowers from the same packet with the Lupine, I think these are a type of Daisy.

They look fake, that shiny part is how they really look.


MiniFamous Calibrachoa Million Bells--I think this may be Cracklin' Fire

Intensia Cabernet Phlox hybrid--Proven Winners with Dahlberg Daisy and Diamond Frost Euphorbia--Proven Winners

Royal Carpet Alyssum with Petunia Easy Wave Blue


Strawflowers

Oh boy! I am so in awe of that strawflower. My grandmother used to grow them in Maine. I've not had any luck here-not enough sun I think. Lovely blooms!

Kathleen said...

Aiyana said...

You're right, on first glance, the daisies do look like plastic! You have so many beautiful flowers. Do you spend a lot of time strolling through your garden? I think I would!

Wow! Spring is just busting out all over at your place isn't it? I love it! I was lazy and didn't plant anything this year.

Wow Darla you have so much blooming and I am so jealous. Do you leave your Caladiums in the ground where you live or take them up in the winter.I would grow them if I could leave them in the ground.I tried to keep the bulbs but they did not keep for me. I simply love the purple petunias and lavender assylium, gorgeous!

Blissful Melissa said...

Jean said...

Wow! I love the combinations that you put together! Everything looks so pretty. Can't pick a favorite, I love them all! Jean

Titania said...

Darla you are amazing with the array of plants with beautiful flowers. The colours are all so harmonious together. The straw-flowers are native plants
of Australia. I love Salvias so I am very intrigued with the hot-lips.

Becca's Dirt said...

Jake said...

Looking good your way! I still don't see my Caladiums coming back, maybe they died?

Susie said...

Beautiful as usual Darla.

Grace Peterson said...

Wow Darla~~ This is amazing! I bet the caladium is hardy in your climate--lucky gal. It's interesting that you've got a Double Knockout Rose. They must grow everywhere. Last year I couldn't decide on the single or the double so I bought both and planted them close to each other. Needless to say I'm waiting very patiently (huh!) for them to bloom. Surprisingly my 'Hot Lips' survived our winter. And my Celosia is slow but sure!

flowergardengirl said...

Gosh that's a lot of variety. You have picked the best of the best. I don't have a perennial or annual blooming yet. It will be another month at least. I planted all that seed and they bloom later than the nursery bought flowers.

Shellmo said...

I could spend hours in your yard just admiring your beautiful flowers!!

Leedra said...

Hot Lips sure is pretty. I have been watching my Lupine for buds, but none yet.

Yep, I could live next door to you! lol

Marsha said...

Such beauty you have already and you have such variety. A very gorgeous garden that I look forward to following all season.

Don't you just love the hot lips salvia? Around here we have to grow them as annuals but when I was in TX, I saw a plant that was so big it looked like a shrub.

George said...

Thanks for the tour of your beautiful garden.

Jessica said...

Just came by to see your pretty flowers. :)

Hope your day is a good one!
