Lori’s Flowers

Howdee all,

Flowers from my Sicksta Loris Garden

Lori will comment with the flowers names and I will post them as soon as she does.

I will just Give my guesses to what they are now.. Sickstas comments on her flowers in blue.

One of my favorite purchases doesn't have very large flowers but I love how well it has done. It is the plant in the first photo that is on the left of the cone flowers. It has the tall spires of red flowers and is called Persicaria Firetail. I think Del has that plant also..

loris garden_20090718_001This one I know as Purple coneflower…Lori probably knows another name for it

The first two are echinacea (purple coneflower)

loris garden_20090718_008This is another type of purple coneflower…very cool..large center

Razzmatazz is the name of the puffy center one.

Guessing this is some kind of black eyed susan

The third flower just ended up in that place and I am not sure what it is...ha

loris garden_20090718_015Some white flower..is this a coneflower too Sicksta?

The forth flower is a light yellow echinacea. I don't remember the name but I have the tag in the ground next to the plant, but it is too dark out now to find it.

loris garden_20090718_026This is some sort of Day LiLy but triple kind

The orange day lillies were here when we bought the house. I always loved them because they are like a triple flower.

loris garden_20090718_017 Some kind of bee in the Day Lily ..fuzzy wuzzy..loris garden_20090718_017Ok..I have not a clue..but its blue..that much is true.. 

The next two are platycodons (balloon flowers)

loris garden_20090718_024  And another that is blue ..Sicksta these are the two I was talking about..

One is tall and the other is a dwarf size.

loris garden_20090718_043Yellow Day Lily

The yellow day lily has a light lemon scent.

loris garden_20090718_044Don't know what this reddish beauty is but i Loved the sunshiny yellow coming from the center…

The last flower is a red mandevilla.

Beautiful flowers! I like your fuzzy wuzzy...he sort of makes me think of a bat. I don't know why, though! I like the blue flowers. They are very veiny looking (true blue bloods! ) :-)

Very pretty flowers, Dawn. It made me realize I still have more flowers, namely roses to post. I guess I had better get going on it. ;o)

What a sweet garden! Love that Razzmatazz as well as the flowers that look like black-eyed Susans. I need to replace my plain old Cone Flowers, which aren't doing much anyway.

Don't you just love Summertime???!!!

I loved the Razzmatazz cone flower. Never seen that one before, being a great flower gardener ourselves before we hit the road.

Ruth said...
