Blooming in my garden today: Dutch iris

11 05 2013

Dutch iris (Iris hollandica); these are a new addition to my garden and I think the combination of royal purple, bronze-chocolate and that pop of Big Bird yellow is stunning! There are just two in bloom today, with about 15 more awaiting their chance to turn heads. I’m looking for the bag I saved so that I can identify the exact cultivar; info to come!

Blooming in my garden: ‘Casa Blanca’ lily, kissed by the morning sun

13 06 2012

It’s no secret that I love, love, love growing and photographing different types of lilies. My favorite one is blooming in my garden now—Lilium ‘Casa Blanca’, a prizewinning Oriental lily from Holland. The blooms are huge—measuring 10-12″—and they are incredibly fragrant. Mine are growing in a large pot outside my patio doors and they return every year.
