The three Ismene have started to bloom in first week of June, their buds have appeared and opened on high spikes. Perhaps it's their personal record: mostly Ismene (Hymenocallis festalis) bloom in July. Or perhaps I'd stored the bulbs in inadequate cool place, because these bulbs need +6...+10 C for storing during winter time.
The first one was green-yellow Ismene, and then two white plants have bloomed. Hymenocallis festalis common name is Spider Lily or Ismene, they are very graceful.
This week was enough warm, +19 ...+24 C and new flowers appeared on the beds, I usually forget them and am surprised seeing their bright colors.
Here are last tulips near my pond. I love that tulips bloom not all at once and some of them blossom in June.I think it because May and the first week of June was cool especially nights were cold. Here are other rhododendrons, varieties 'Northern daughter' , 'Cunningham's White' and one of azaleas 'Mandarin light' (orange).
In shady corner rhododendrons bloom. These are varieties 'Helsinki University' (on the left) and 'Peter Tigershtedt' (on the right). They opened their blossoms last week.
Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day to all!
