mullein would have been blooming, but I cut it all back, so it will make multiple flower stalks, not just one.

(Special bonus, if you click on the bottom one, you will see one of our chickens in the background. I didn't even realize I was taking her picture. :) )

Lilies — native Turk’s Cap (in portrait mode and regular) and lone surviving yellow Asiatic Lily — I think others got eaten by chipmunks and/or voles. The shorter ones are either remnants of other survivors or pieces of bulb scale that propagated and grew.

Re: Flowers in bloom now

I have a super neglected Abraham Darby rose. I didn’t even weed around it this year, but it grows as a climber so managed to stay above the riff-raff.

I noticed it had put on two dainty (stunted) blooms today, and they smelled so wonderful that I decided to enjoy them inside. I found a few other blooming plants to keep them company in the vase (bottle) then walked around the garden with it, looking for a good background to take a picture in front of.

- The Portrait mode image on the right turned out nice, but the limited focal depth cut off the sprig of Red shiso at the top, making the arrangement look unbalanced.....


- Abraham Darby rose
- Autumn Joy sedum
- Blue Mist flower
- Garlic Chice blossoms
- Red (aka) Shiso (perilla)
- Goldenrod
- Aka Manma (red rice) flower

Re: Flowers in bloom now

Sunflowers still blooming, daylilies just quit a few days ago after blooming for months, beautyberry not blooming, but covered in those neon purple berries, reblooming azalea is reblooming, camellia is covered in buds (but they are small and will take awhile yet), my yard is covered in little red cypress vine flowers which the hummingbirds and sulphur butterflies love. (The cypress vine has now appeared in the front yard also, even though I only ever planted it in back. It is actually becoming a bit weedy and can tend to smother other stuff.) Asters of course. Sedum not blooming yet. Carolina allspice and lorapetalum keep putting out one more blossom here and there. Okra (I think their flowers are beautiful) and squash blossoms. New guinea impatiens just keep blooming and blooming. Goldenrod, zinnias hanging in there, black eyed susans still producing some flowers, especially the ones I did some deadheading on. Dianthus around the mailbox keeps blooming and blooming despite little care and being overtaken by the lawn growing back into their bed.

Added: I forgot, the blanket flower (gaillardia) in the front foundation planting keeps blooming and blooming. It is a solid yellow version, which I was not expecting. I think when it is done and the weather breaks, I will move it to the back yard and plant something there that goes with the color scheme better. Lavender is blooming. Not flowering exactly, but the pink muhly grass has its delicate pink seed heads and all the pokeweed is in deep purple berries.

Added again Some of the bee balm succumbed to powdery mildew (which monarda is very susceptible to), but some of it is still hanging in there and producing flowers. Annual and perennial salvias still blooming as long as I keep them dead headed.

Re: Flowers in bloom now

Double rose pikake (Jasmine sambac), Princess Michiko Hibiscus, Roses, a few dendrobiums, Parrot beak heliconia, Desert honeysuckle (It is a weed coming from my neighbor's yard,) Dragon fruit, Crown of thorns, bougainvillea, and lavender. The eggplant and peppers are putting out new flowers.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.
