Like a fireworks display, the garden is an explosion of color.
Daylilies are about finished but here are some that bloomed lately.
Hemerocallis ‘Shimmering Orange Fizz’
Hemerocallis ‘Imperial Elegance’
Hemerocallis ‘Bela Lugosi’ is deep, dark, blackish purple.
Desert Rose/Adenium obesum,in the succulent collection, hasn’t bloomed in years. Something triggered it;
and, there you have it, a bud.
I finally planted a Callicarpa dichotoma/purple beautyberry. I thought after the trees were fully leafed
out that it was planted in too much shade, but to my surprise it is budding and I am delighted. The berries
are a distinctive, bright magenta.
