I just got a new camera so I'm practicing, hoping to become the photographer some of you are.

Here's some pics of a few flowers I've had blooming so far this year.

I love those Perennial Bachelor Button and Cushion spurge but no one has answered my questions yet. :( Where do I buy those?

RE: A few flower pics

I've seen Perennial Bachelor Button in seeds but not Cushion Spurge (not to say you can't get them in seeds however). Mine were plants when I purchased them at a local greenhouse. I haven't ordered much off the internet yet, so I can't help you much there.

The Cushion Spurge blooms a fluorescent yellow in the spring, stays green all summer and then turns a bronze/red in the fall. It stays in a nice rounded shrub like form all year. Doesn't get leggy like some plants. It's also very hardy. Our winters get 20-30 below sometimes.

Thanks for your compliments. I'm glad you liked the pictures.

Stunning! It is just stunningly gorgeous photos. Congrats to your gardening success!!

BTW, the blue/white iris that you don't know the name is called "Iris 'Wabash'". You can get detail information from the link below.

Beautiful flowers and garden. I wish someone knew the name of the iris in first picture. It is so beautiful. I have a lot of iris but none that color.

RE: A few flower pics

Lovely flowers!
The first Iris could be 'Wabash', but there are other similar cultivars.

Great photos of some beautiful flowers. Love the purple & white iris one but my favorite is the Perennial Bachelor Button. You did a very good close up shot on that one. Keep up the good work.
