Garden Bloom Journal July 14, 2007

My original idea was to keep track of what blooms and when. Then I can know what to expect in following years and to use this journal to help when purchasing plants in the future. Thus I can fill in those areas and times when color is lacking.

In that vein, for the week of July 14, 2007:
Annuals: Allysum, Hollyhock, Impatiens, Cosmos, Cleome, Angelonia, Salvia, NG Impatiens
Perennials: Phlox, Balloon/platycodon, Rosa, Veronica, Daylily, Coreopsis, Geranium, Hosta, Hydrangea Knautia, Verbena Bonariensis, Kniphofia/torch lily, Daisy, Salvia.

I didn’t list the different cultivars of each; if you want to know more about them then you must post to the blog or email me.
