These Lionheart Tango lilies are beautiful this year! It's the first year the deer did not eat 90% of them.
At the beginning of this garden path, you can barely see the Lionhearts; until you walk further along around the curve
and the Lionhearts are suddenly right next to you in all their gorgeous yellow/purple glory!
At the very start of this path, I have some Echinacea Sombrero® Sandy Yellow that I planted in August of 2014. Echinacea has always been difficult for me to keep alive, so I am thrilled that they survived the winter of 2014/15! They are not quite fully open in the photo below:
The yellow blooms continue right on to the whiskey barrels on my deck where I have some very tall yellow calla lilies.
My MIL gave me a small pot of two callas about 15 years ago and they have multiplied at last 100 fold since then! I have them in many of the deck containers
as well as in multiple gardens in the yard.
I even bring them inside for centerpieces.
Calla lilies are one of my favorite flowers.
If you are interested, This is my post last year on July 26 when I had only 2 of the Lionheart lilies that escaped the deer buffet. You can also see some of the red "Olina" Tango lilies in that post.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are as thrilled with your garden this year as I am with mine!
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
