How inspiring all the pictures are!

We just planted this hydrangia about two months ago. It is still trying to decide if it will be pink or blue. The two blooms on it originally were solid pink.

Whats blooming in your yards or gardens picture thread-hydrangia-may-10.jpg

Edited to ask: how can I insert larger pics? Thanks

Orlaya grandiflora is blooming now. It's a relative of the carrot and unlike Queen Anne's Lace, does not invade every single area of the yard.



Drama Queen Poppy.



Rudbeckia hirta.



Asiatic Lilies.



Common ditch lilies.



Echinacea "White Swan"

That rudbeckia hirta is orange and yellow. The center is brown. My camera lies. The purple in the background confused it.



Orlaya grandiflora is an annual grown from seed. It should work just about anywhere. The Drama Queen poppy is Papaver somniferum, another annual variety. Here in the south, we sow seeds in the fall and they overwinter. In colder climates, you should be able to sow them in late February/March and still get them to grow and bloom in a single year. It might have problems with the humidity in Florida. They do okay in Southern Georgia though. Hers are already finished while mine are just getting started.
