The hula dancers are the show right now, with the pallida & paradoxa in second. I will have to thin the hula dancer (type) plants next spring, so i am going to tag them now before i forget what's what later in the year. I am also doing a timelapse movie of this bed too... so when its later in the summer i will post as well.

This the timelapse from a few years back of paradoxa.

Nevermore44, after seeing the pictures of your flower beds, I think I am going to plant my coneflowers closer together.

Well they weren't always growing into each other like they are now... they grow together... plus adding in new ones in any little spot you see open doesn't help. It sounds like everyone here is running out of room. I will need to thin the ones I don't want at some point too (just to make room for the even newer ones)

Here's my seedling bed that i placed in the veggie bed. I started the seeds too late this year, so they aren't very big. But i am hoping that since they soil is great in the veggie bed.. that they will grow out quickly this year.

Here's the updated seedling bed. They seem to be settled in and are growing fairly quickly from the photo a few weeks back

Very pretty! I tip my hat to you.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

Wow Nevermore...I am in total awe! Incredible garden. Great pics. Can you please tell me the name and color of each with the thin or droopy petals. I am not familiar with them. Thanks.

The white drippy ones are 'hula dancer'... Basically white pallida. It does come from seed too which is nice. The purple ones are just varieties of standard purpurea and crosses with tennesseensis. These are the ones I need to thin since they grow so much quicker then the fancy hybrids.

Your gardens are so impressive. Hula Dancer is one you never see around here.

Thanks. I think they only sell it in seed form. I got mine from Chiltern seeds out of the uk years back. I will save seeds as usual for anyone that wants some.

Very impressive! In my bed the PowWow White does steal the show. It has about 29 flowers right now!

Susan, what is the red flower in the picture on the right that's climbing up the metal trellis?

Your flowers look nice. With all of the Daylilies you put out and the flowers in the picture, you have to spend a lot of time maintaining it all.

I like the white day lily. It would be great to have a big patch of them.

What's the purple haze blooms in the middle back of the shot .. To the of the kniphophia?
