New flowers in bloom

I wanted to give an update on some of my new garden plants that are now in bloom.

I raved about some Rudbeckias several months ago, then I decided to order some.  I am very pleased to report that they have grown very quickly and are now covered in blooms.

A little later in the Spring, I planted some Gaillardias in the same corner garden.  The first of those are now blooming.

Along the back fence I have a Spanish Flag growing on a trellis and it is topped with about 10 bloom spikes.

It's so nice to see my monetary and time investments paying off in this way.

  1. I have never seen a Spanish Flag. It is quite unique and its bloom reminds me of the hyacinth bean vine that sends out the same type of bloom.
