And a Blue persicifolia, bowing down to greet the fleabane daisy.
Shasta 'snowcap' has also bloomed.
Peachleaf bellflowers add such great height to a bed.
This deep shade peony gets no direct light whatsoever, but occasionally sends up a bloom or 2.
And for the bedfellows part of this post, here is a new Hosta Patriot in a sunny bed with hydrangea, daylilies and other bright bloomers. I think it will make a great feature plant on the corner of the bed, provided it can tolerate the sun.
Some more new additions, asiatic lily Tiny Ghost, the colour isn't quite as pictured, it reminds me of the colour of red wine.
The new lower bed (May 2010) has turned into a pretty wild mix of colours, I am now dubbing it 'The Rainbow Bed', since there are really no other words for it. Probably breaking many gardening rules, or at least guidelines, but is it a lot of fun and seems to attract quite a bit of attention.
