Lotus vine: lotus maculatus 'Amazon Sunset'
I could swear that the 15th of June was coming up this weekend... but when I opened up my feed reader today, I found a whole pile of Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day posts from yesterday. OOPS! Here, without further ado, are some more hot-color highlights from my garden this month:
Celosia spiking up through the lotus vine and alternanthera foliage
Flowering peach heuchera--and a pretty self-sown red snapdragon
'Purple Dragon' lamium, digitalis parviflora, and a few clumps of variegated thyme
A stray heuchera spike, caught up in the dark foliage of chocolate eupatorium
And a few on the cooler side of the color wheel:
Unnamed purple clematis, scrambling through my 'Bing' cherry tree
As-yet-unplanted wax begonias at the end of a flat
Oakleaf hydrangea, the nondescript flowers of lyreleaf sage, 'Chubby Fingers' sedum
Also in bloom, but not pictured:
'Red Rocks' penstemon, 'Blue Star' amsonia, echinops ritro, 'Albury Purple' hypericum, nicotiana, 'Black & Blue' salvia, 'Caradonna' salvia, 'Salsa Burgundy' salvia, little-leaf culinary sage, 'Newe Ya'ar' culinary sage, blackberry, 'Sweet Kate' spiderwort, 'Black Lace' and 'Black Beauty' elderberries, 'Gartenmeister' fuchsia, 'Bandana Cherry' lantana, various snapdragons and heucheras, 'Zweiweltenkind' goatsbeard
