I like my combinations, even if the pairings occur by sheer luck!
The Painted Daisy 'Juwa' looks great with the white Campanula Carpatica and the Blue Campanula persicifolia, a little red white & blue for my American friends.
This is somewhat of a goof. I had wanted 3ft shastas to go with the 3ft heliopsis, but I got the much shorter Snowcap. I don't remember if this was a tag error or a 'me' error, but this is what we have now. I am really enjoying the Stachys byzantina, and need to remember to add a few more this year.
Here is the beautiful blue peachleaf bellflower again, this time with perennial sage,
...and again with Carpatica. This from the 'set the camera on the ground and hope for the best' method that I use periodically.
The Frog King has found a spot where he can survey the Kingdom.
Have a look at this odd little hosta. It is a dwarf blue, but has virtually nothing for a base, but is sending up a flower stalk. There is no sign of slug activity in the immediate area, I'm not sure what it's doing, but flowers are always nice!
Here in the shade is a trio, old fashioned bleeding heart is done blooming, the Ivory Halo Dogwood just grows and looks great with flashy foliage and the New York fall aster is growing well in the foreground, hopefully it will bloom in August.
And todays parting shot, I'm not sure if the pot is too big, or the plant is too small, but since it is on a windy ledge I needed something heavy enough to not blow away (which has happened before - poor patio tomatoes). Maybe it will expand and appear better proportioned soon?
