Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day for August 2020.
Here in my USDA Hardiness Zone 6a garden in central Indiana, I wasn't quite sure where to begin! I have a lot more flowers than I thought.
So, let's just start looking, shall we?
First off, I have Allium 'Millenium' blooming all over because I planted it along the edges of several borders. It is a bee and pollinator magnet. Don't believe me? Check out the video I've added at the end of this post.
And yes, I shot those videos sitting right there by all those bees, and not a one of them took any notice of me.
Peeking through the allium is Clematis x jouiniana 'Mrs. Robert Brydon'.
It's a clematis that scrambles in and around other flowers and blooms late in the season.
Elsewhere in the garden...
This Phlox paniculata shows up and blooms nicely with no powdery mildew on its leaves.
This is Calamintha nepeta subsp nepeta. It is also a pollinator magnet!
