Great color inspiration Patty! Thanks for sharing. Wish we had pretty flowers like that here. I am a black thumb so they don't grow when I am around.Enjoy the day!Erin
gorgeous patty! and your booth looked great at the show!
Erin - These are the "Darwin" flowers - they survive pretty much without any intervention. I used to be a gardening freak before I discovered fire and glass, and over the years the fuss-pot plants have disappeared, leaving only the hearty ones. Were not for that, I'd have none. :-)Thank you, Maire! It's a work in progress, for sure.
Spectacular blossoms! You have such a fun website. I just love your meanies!
Just beautiful Patty. I am especially fond of blues in a garden....so refreshing in the heat of summer.You have just jogged my memory of another old favourite to put on my list. I adore the clematis - but the stoksia is the one that is calling me at the moment.
Deb, you have reminded me once again that we were no doubt twins separated at birth. I too have a penchant for Stokesia, and was able to find a close approximate to it here in California. It's called Centaurea Montana - have you heard of it? This site has photos of them side by side:http://www.doctorleeflowerphoto.com/flower/purple/purple_round.htm
Yes Patty, I have heard of centurea montana, what is more I have grown it!!My mistake this time as I got the plants confused...it has been a long time ;)Looking at the other plants on that page has reminded me of the joys of many of the other 'blues' though. Scabiosa is another I was fond of.Have you ever grown the Allium christophii? That is a marvel to behold when in flower.Another 'blue' that I love & I am pretty sure would survive in your wonderful garden with the minimum of attention are the Eringyum's (Sea Hollys).Yep I like the 'odd' as well as the pretty ;)I wanna come & stay in Darwin gardens!!
