The time goes so quickly, we're in August, Garden Bloggers Bloom Day is today. What blooms in my northern garden in mid-August ?
Of course, clematises bloom despite of the cold snap, particularly cold nights and early mornings. There are Clematis varieties ‘The President’ and ‘Madam de Coultre’.
In spring I planted the Impatiens (Balsamina) seeds directly into the flower bed and they had survived, had plenty of space are blooming now.
In May I potted a few Begonia tubers. They had been growing in the greenhouse until the weather became warm, then I've put the pots in the garden and in the hanging basket. The varieties are: white 'Non stop','Illumination Rose’ pendula, red 'Non Stop Fire' and ‘Rose Petticoat'.
Beautiful Hydrangea Grandiflora grows 8 years in my garden and flowers permanently. I planted a few cuttings from it and now I have more new Grandiflora.
Roses bloom the second wave. The red-silvery rose ‘Anadia’ has recovered and is blooming well. Another one is pink rose ‘The Fairy’, it never rests, blooms continuously from June to frost.
Sweet peas were planted in a large container near the pergola; their fragrance is spread in my window now. In the front garden Ligularia (dentata), variety ‘Othello’ is blooming too. Bees, butterflies and bumblebees love its yellow flowers.
Most of my lilies have faded but these two are still in bloom, have strong flavor!
I hope to show you some flowering plants despite of cold weather and rain the next GBBD in September.
