Amsonia tabernaemontana, Baptisia 'Wayne's World,' and some Double Pink Knockout Roses.


Amsonia 'Blue Ice,' Amsonia hubrichtii, yellow Gaillardia, Baptisia 'Purple Smoke,' and more Roses.

Easy Does It Rose

Rose 'Easy Does It,' Nepeta 'Walker's Low', and Penstemon. These Penstemon are volunteer seedlings from Dark Towers. They are about to bloom. I guess they can stay there for now. LOL.

What's blooming in your area? I have to say the Baptisias are really impressing me this year! Rose 'Easy Does It' has to be the best Rose I've ever grown.

RE: Now Blooming

Wow!!! Awesome pics. I love the easy does it rose. I passed it up last year at lowes and now I'm kicking myself!
I do not have a thing blooming beside tulips and an obscene amount of dandelions ! :)
I hope in a couple weeks to have some pics. But I'm so happy to see yours!

RE: Now Blooming

Thanks. You will love the Easy Does It Rose. Here's the entire plant. They look good with Russian Sage and Nepeta. Check out this photo of the entire plant. It is the most trouble free Rose I've ever seen. The blooms are unique too. I love the color changes. I have Russian Sage on the other side, but it's not blooming yet.

Rose 'Easy Does It'

RE: Now Blooming

Oh, I too love that rose. Nothing but the spring bulbs in bloom here either. (Well, those pretty yellow fluffy headed things dotting the yard are looking cheerful, at least.) My baptisia just broke ground 3 days ago. Many perennials that showed up too early due to a much warmer than usual March have been zapped big time by a 21 degree night last week and now 3 nights in a row of temps well below freezing is predicted. It will be a further blow. Pictures I have taken around my yard show that the growing season was a full month ahead of schedule till that hard freeze. It is going to take a long time for things to recover. In the mean time, I will enjoy your lovely pictures.

RE: Now Blooming

Everything looks so healthy, and such nice color combos. Appreciate the careful labeling too.

RE: Now Blooming

Incredible pictures. I know it has been a warm spring and I know you are in a more moderate zone than I but what I see in these pics is crazy far along! I don't expect to see that in my garden until...early June!

RE: Now Blooming

Wonderful color in all your photos! Beautiful roses!
(My soil still is frozen 10"down,lol) Someday,I'll plant some hardy roses...
