The first of the oriental lilies have bloomed as well. I have a crop of Stargazers that are among the first bulbs I planted in the front garden and I still love them. They have tripled in quantity and smell wonderful. That's a Tigers Eye Sumac peaking up in the background and a Actaea Black Negligee. The Black Negligee needs shade so we'll see how she does without the trees. The sumac is actually a plant that I moved to the back, but because of the suckering, I have baby plants like this all through the bed as well as the rose bed behind the boxwood. Probably a huge mistake to plant the sumac, but I love it in the fall when it turns bright reddish orange.
Longiflorum Lilies in the back of the bed.
The last of the red Asiatics still in bloom.
And just a little random fun....a poppy that looks like a big pom-pom in the front of the bed.
