Late July, Adenophora liliifolia

Late July, Adenophora liliifolia (Adenophora liliifolia)

This lovely blue joins the yellow lig blooming behind. Unlike the large leaves of the Lig, this is more a few scattered short leaves where these tall stalks begin late spring starting bloom early summer and continuing for nearly a month. It has been spreading quickly and growing well, just a gift patch of earth when I received it.

Great combination.

Thank you. I didn't put them together in the new garden, but this spreads so easily, I'm sure it will find its way back. Not enough sun here to put them together, at least I have these lasting memories. I'll have the new garden up once spring begins again. :-)

I have some of this too, Gt. It's so pretty and just as tough as can be. Love the ligs too. They are amazing plants...I have some come from seed here in the new garden. You can tell the seeders as they are light and have a whitish fuzz on them stems and red...
I was out looking at the seed heads and they were totally soaked as we've had almost 8 days of wet weather...the tail end of hurricane Sandy and the little stream is gurgling beautifully,. The forest really needs it. Some of the smaller trees near the highways are already looking dead and dried up.

Glad you got some much needed rainfall! We're long deep frozen, though this new spot on the hill I haven't seen the really low lows yet. I'm hoping adenophora spreads itself here too. I was able to divide it into three when I moved already. :-)

I'll watch for seedling from the Lig. From you postings Lori, I expect more from the perzwalski than this stenocephala.
