Flowers In My Garden

Durgan writes, "Gardening and photography go hand in hand. It appears to me more photographs could accompany the written posted material. " which got me to thinking.... Why not have a thread of what's growing in our gardens?

So here are some blooms in my garden. Image

I really MUST get my camera fixed :lol: Your pictures are beautiful. I love the iris and the rose (what kind is that?). Very nice - thanks for sharing.

I forgot to check, but what state are you in???
God Bless!

The Clerodendron ugandese is very attractive. What do you think the odds of me being able to grow Clerodendron ugandese as a patio plant would be? Something I could haul out in spring and haul back in long before the snow starts blanketing the ground?

As long as you put it in a large pot and are prepared to keep it pruned back quite a bit you'll have no problem at all. (A bonus is you can root all you cut off as easily as sticking it in a glass of water.)

I grew mine in a pot for years; it never was able to achieve it's natural state of 6'+ tall & wide, but it bloomed beautifully all the same. (It blooms on new wood, I believe.)

My patio is on the east side of my home and is somewhat protected from strong afternoon sun. I just read this is ideal for Clerodendrum ugandense and that I could probably let it go dormant by overwintering it in a garage. Interesting. This is one I would like to try. I first fell in love with it when I saw it growing in the Biltmore greenhouses in NC. Thanks for the info. Thanks for the beautiful photos.

Southern Missouri

Again, I am new here and have been taking pictures of everything as it blooms and before hand and have some progression photos coming up of a my dogwood tree and redbuds. Things are just starting to get going in southern Missouri. I mowed the grass for the first time this year Saturday, I would rather mow grass than shovel snow any day.

Thanks

Thanks, there is plenty more to come. I just bought supplies to do my annual bed and will probably be getting it out this weekend. We have a possible light frost warning out for Sunday, 35 degrees but some areas may get a nip but hopefully that should be the last of the near frosty weather. I just put a new rose out and also a potted rose. Unfortuanley the deer ate my tulips in the extended part of my yard and very few left closer to the house. I am sort of new to gardening, I just bought my first home in 2005 and didnt get to enjoy it much the first year with the hassle of moving in but have became interested since. The property used to have an old homestead and I am constantly surprised with new findings. Because of that I may be posting with "what is this" pictures. Attached in this post are pictures of the main yard, the first is from the road looking toward the house and the second is an exact opposit view from the porch you see on the house in the first. If anyone has any suggestions feel free to speak up. There is a well spaced pine forest to the left if looking from the first picture view directly next to the drive way. You can kind of see it in Pic 2. Also a picture looking into the forest so you can see the depth. I would like to put a shrubs or ornamental trees going up the other side. I have several things I want to ad but as most things it just takes time and a little money.
