I planted globe flower and scabiosa seeds in Feb, and I’m just now starting to find spots around the garden for them. They are still very small, which surprises me. I expected that they’d be flowering by this time.

One new thing is I tried my hand at rooting some butterfly bush cuttings, and 2 out of 4 took. They got planted today.

Well done! Your Lime Light hydrangea is lovely, the refreshing colour reminds me of lime sherbet and makes me want to dip a spoon into that pompom of flowers and eat it. After seeing your picture above I'm now tempted to make enquiries with the nursery I deal with to see if they can order some in. I recently picked up a phalaenopsis orchid whose flowers are the exact same shade of pale lime green as your hydrangea and it's such a nice contrast to the many other orchids in my home that have a lot of pink or violet tones in them.

I love and recommend peonies.

At the moment, I have containers with nothing in them and I'm debating -- with myself, of course -- whether I want to put all white peonies in them. One plant each.

I've had a little trouble getting names for EXACTLY what I want. A large bloom, low growing, long-blooming, mid-late season herbaceous WHITE peony. I'd prefer a shorter variety because that pots are in an open front yard, and taller ones would most likely be blown over by a too-strong wind.

I've been thinking about having an all white area to my garden for a while now.
I prefer large flower blooms. And white peonies fit that bill perfectly.

Just haven't decided how badly I want it...and want to DO it.

My beds have sedum autumn joy (which turns red) and various colors of dallies, various colors of hyacinth, purple bearded Irises...all of which I recommend highly! I've also had aisle, lenten rose, butterfly bush, hydrangea, weigela, eponymous, and firepower nandina. And Butterfly Weed - LOVE the bright orange color. Again, all of which I recommend.

ETA: I'm going to go back and look at this entire thread. These photos are giving me ideas!
