What's blooming this week.

Most of these are flowers that have been in the garden for years. I guess they are the tried and true. Most of them I have forgotten or lost the names. For example this Clematis. I call them pretty!
This one is easier. The daylilly on the right is Stella Odella and the shrub on the left is St John's Wort. The funny thing is the St John's Wort was on clearance and had one little branch that was alive. It has made some progress and I saved a plant!
These lilies were in a grab bag at a nursery several years ago. I don't remember what they were called but I don't have to worry about them coming back each year!
This is the butterfly weed. It is a native of the midwest. I still remember seeing it along the road on a trip to southern Missouri and thinking I paid for a plant just like that!
Here is what they called the common sundrop. What do they mean about common. How about reliable stunning yellow sundrop!
And last the balloon flower. Another one of the old reliable flowers. You can't say enough about them!

I really like your mix of dark purple clematis with a light pinkish clematis. Very nice. Too bad you don't know what the dark one is - I'd like one.

I just got St. John's Wort last year - for free. The native plant supplier here gave them too me because they had been neglected and he was sure he wouldn't be able to sell them. They look just fine this year! HUGE!
