The cut flower business ended in 2011 but I continue to post other items about gardening.

Bouquets for Friday July 25th

The first of the lisianthus I planted last January have started blooming. The ones in the bouquet below are 'Twinkle Blue Blush'. The grass is 'Tapestry' millet, and the sunflowers are 'ProCut Lemon'. There is also a bit of yellow statice and some yellow rudbeckia. This bouquet is 100% annuals.

The next bouquet has pink larkspur, 'Raspberry Wine' mondarda, white statice, red zinnias, 'Natural Feelings' phlox, snapdragons and lily 'Triumphator'. The big lilies are lovely and fragrant but a little hard to incorporate into a bouquet because each flower is held horizontally.

Here is today's version of a red-yellow-orange bouquet. 'Tapestry' millet like in the first one with orange lilies, red snapdragons, and orange and yellow statice. The yellow pom-pom flowers at the top of the bouquet are from plants given to me by a friend. I think they are Rudbeckia laciniata 'Golden Glow'.
