Lilylady, do you know the name of the variety in your photo? It is lovely and I'd like to plant some! Is it an asiatic variety?

I shot these pictures of the spiderwort in my yard just before leaving for work this morning. Spiderwort is an Indiana native species. Its lovely little flowers show off all morning and then close up tightly by mid-afternoon. Next morning, there they are to greet me again!

I know that it IS an Asiatic lily because it has no fragrance. Several people here at CD have called them Tiger Lilies, but I don't definitively know that's what they are.

I bought two plants at Lowe's in 2008 and planted them. They've grown to over five dozen of this type and five dozen or so deep red Asiatic lilies.

I love seeing everyone's gardens especially love the lilies. Mine are just about to bloom. Three years ago I bought a new house with bare hard packed dirt and began creating a garden. I have some problems with graffiti taggers so I created a green anti-graffiti wall last summer with ceramics, rebar, baling wire and honeysuckle plus other plants. There is a before and after picture of the wall although not in the right order. This weekend I finished my herb garden that is along the walk to my front door. The Maxmillian sunflower is from last summer. Here are a few pictures.

Dancingearth, you did a great job with that wall. What a difference. I love the blue gate!

I love the blue gate as well, and can't believe the difference between the 'bare wall' and the last picture of the group. Bravo to you!! And that bright yellow columbine is just beautiful. I have several, but all in shades of pink/purple. I think the yellow just livens things up tremendously. Thanks for sharing

Thanks! Growing anything green and flowering here is striking against the blue sky and tan dirt. And although I love the 6 ft. wall around my yard for the privacy, I'm working on it not being the focal point. This is only the second year for the outside wall so I think by the end of summer the honeysuckle will completely cover the graffiti that the city could not get off. I'm always amazed att the strength of nature here. In the gravel hell strip alongside the road I have a volunteer hollyhock and a marigold. It gets no water from me there and hasn't rained in months except once and that was a sprinkling.
