This sunny bed is a riot of colour right now.
The pure red in the foreground is Redbirds in a Tree “Scrophularia macrantha”
It is a rare wildflower from the southern mountains of New Mexico and Arizona, and the hummingbirds love it!
Really came through the freezing winter well.
Here you can see the yellow Lysimachia punctata ‘Alexander’ (variegated garden loosestrife)
The blue is the geranium, and the purple is an Allium christophii.
The pink flowers are silene that have reseeded. There’s a few white ones too.
The other reddish ones are Centranthus or Jupiter’s Beard or Valerian.
Whatever you wish to call it.
And there’s even some miniature roses to add to the picture.
The great thing is most of these plants have a long blooming time, especially if I deadhead and cut back for a second bloom.
Such a cheerful bunch o’ blooms!
