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.

thanks for sharing you beautiful garden!!! Love all the purples. I tried to grow the calla but never succeed at it. I just came in from watering my garden since it is so dry right now. a new thing I planted this year is hops climbing up my garden shed.ReplyDelete
Mosquitos are so bad here right now.
Enjoy the rest of the garden season.
We have had a lot of mosquitoes, too...I will have to "hop" on over and see your hops climbing the shed! :)
Wow-Zoey, those lilies are something special.ReplyDelete
The deer have been terrorizing my flower beds and so there is no phlox, no sedum, no coneflower for me this year. I tried a new "deer repellent"--Plantskyd--worked for a couple of weeks, but then they got used to it. Perhaps I need to play the lottery and win a big jackpot---the first thing I'd do is fence the entire place.
Your garden looks like it's doing very well this year. Conditions have been pretty good up until today. Wow--the heat! I'll be glad when those cool Michigan temps return!
Sue, I feel for you with the deer problem. I used Bobbex this year and it so far, so good...very little damage. It was applied multiple times in June and early July.Delete
I hear you on the heat---HATE IT--also waiting for the cooler temps.
Love the bright blues in your garden. So Vibrant. Great job!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Teresa Marie. I am happy the delphiniums returned this year with multiple blooms.Delete
In questo periodo di siccità è un piacere vedere un giardino così rigoglioso :) Complimenti per le composizioni!ReplyDelete
