Early July flowers


I tried a new poppy this year. It is called ‘Amazing Grey’. It is on the small side and is more pink-ish than a blue-grey. The petals are always crinkled.

One of my pink lilies finally opened. Since it is in a pot and can be moved. I gave it the background treatment.

And then there is a Heliconia schiedeana. Related to Strelitzia, the foliage is similar.

Of course there are a lot of daylilies still going.
’It’s a real good Feeling’

And ‘Fuoco del Sole’ are both by Armin Eder in Germany.

A type that is called Edge-no-Eye can be seen in ‘Raspberry Rouge’. It lacks a distinctive separation of the eye from the rest of the petal.

And named after the extinct and crumbling volcano in my village is ‘Pico Matias Simao’

You do go in for the spectacular Wylie - the frilly lily is amazing! Raspberry Rouge is unusual isn't it?

There aren't a lot of edge-no-eye type daylilies around. The heliconia is the most cold hardy one, which still means no frost.

Heliconia is an interesting name - it's the title of one of C S Lewis books, Heliconia Spring but its such a long time since I read it I can't remember anything about it...
