Resilient Plants

Isn’t it amazing how resilient plants are?  They can survive drought, floods, artic cold, blazing sun, suffocating heat, and neglect.

Even with the odd weather this year, our plants look spectacular.

‘Eye Liner’ Lilies are taller and fuller with more blooms than ever.  One bulb was planted in 2019.  They are a cross between Easter Lily and an Asian hybrid.

The stems are straight and sturdy.

Standing above other plants, they’re easy to view from a window.

One last shot.  So happy with these lilies.

Red Yucca blooms provide nectar for hummingbirds.

‘Always Afternoon’ Daylily clump is wider than usual with more flowers.  Planted in 2018, it’s probably time to divide it.

Caryopteris, native to East Asia, does amazingly well here.

Pollinators love them.

Ditch Lilies never fail to brighten up the spring.  They are a little late this year, as is most everything.

I’m on a mission to convince people to give bulbs a chance.  They are one of the most reliable plants you can have.  Most have the added bonus of multiplying.

These were planted in 2006.  The soil is clay, so it’s like they’re planted in cement.  I would love to share but can’t dig them up.

One ‘Inwood’ Daylily bulb was planted in 2017.  Not all daylilies multiply at the same rate.  Some hybrids don’t seem to multiply.

Nepeta Walker’s Low Catmint in is the foreground pot.  It’s new this year and has quickly filled out the pot with foliage and scent.

Hope your garden is blooming and bringing joy.

“If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.”  Vincent Van Gogh
