Here's what I included:
- Alstroemeria (no ID)
- Aquilegia hybrid 'Spring Magic'
- Cerinthe major (also reaching burn-out)
- Coriandrum savitum (rapidly going to seed)
- Eustoma grandiflorum 'Echo White' (new on the scene)
- Hebe 'Wiri Blush'
- Heuchera maxima
- Limonium perezii
- Pelargonium 'Oldbury Duet'
- Pelargonium peltatum (no ID)
|The last of the Alstroemeria, shown with a stem of the ever-blooming Pelargonium peltatum and the fading coriander|
|The navy blue and white Aquilegia 'Spring Magic' deserved more attention that it received this year|
|Tucking the white Eustoma grandiflorum I planted last June from 6-packs in spots around the edges of my Agapanthus, where they were partially screened from last summer's heat, paid off - the white form looks far better this spring than the blue forms|
|Hebe 'Wiri Blush' just produced another flush of flowers|
|Heuchera maxima, a California native, is making a slow start in my garden but it has produced a few stems of flowers|
Last week's tall vase featuring Arthropodium cirratum and Solanum xanti lasted the entire week but I retired it when I created today's vase. The second of last week's vases, featuring Agapanthus, still looks pretty good. It has moved to the dining table while the new vase sits in the entryway. As Arthropodium and Agapanthus are currently making a big show in the garden, I expect you'll see more of them in coming weeks.
