Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day – June 15, 2017

OSO Easy Paprika rose

OSO Easy Paprika rose

On this June Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day the rose have burst into bloom. It has been a cold and wet spring, but  our last couple of days have been in the 90s. The weather gods show just how unpredictable they can be. For me, this spring is is the first really floriferous June we have had.  All the roses but one are new plants and they are really showing off.

Drift rose - Peach

Drift Rose – Peach

This peach Drift rose blooms right next to Paprika. Both of them are low growing landscape roses and require very little care.

Purple Rain - Kordes rose

Purple Rain – a Kordes rose

Kordes started hybridizing disease resistant roses over 30 years ago. No herbicides needed. This is another low growing rose.

Folksinger rose

Folksinger – Griffith Buck rose

I had a Folksinger rose up in  Heath, but it never looked this good.

Polar Express rose

Polar Express – another Kordes rose

This is an elegant icy  white rose. I love all the Kordes roses.

Knockout Red

Knockout Red supplies  the red red rose, that’s newly sprung in June.

Alchemyst rose

By the time you are looking at all these roses I am sure that Fantin-Latour,and  Lion’s Fairy Tale will also be in full bloom.  I think I have to wait a little longer for The Fairy and Purington Pink to bloom. But of course, there are other bloomers in June.

I’m adding this closeup because the rose is so lovely – and just now in full bloom.

White delphinium

This delphinium has already lost one blooming stem in a storm, but it looked very pretty on our dinner table.

Japanese primroses

It is amazing that the Japanese primroses are still showing bloom – but it has been very wet.

Siberian white iris

I have three lovely clumps of white Siberians. And friends waiting for a piece of this dependable beauty.

Blue siberian iris

Blue Siberian iris

I have three big clumps of blue Siberians, but these are coming up in a clump of weeds in the North Border. They will  not give up. Of course, this is another very wet spot.
