Don't you just love the colors of Summer? Today, I'm going to share some of the colors of blooms in my gardens and colors on my porch here in Kentucky.
I'm so happy that my hydrangeas are blooming. This vibrant pink color is so beautiful.
This hydrangea is a young plant and located just off my front porch.
Shades of pink flowers bring more color to my gardens. These zinnias are growing from seeds I planted, and they have just started blooming.
There are some light pink and white flower colors in this area of my gardens. The light pink flower is Cleome (Spider Flowers). It thrives in full sun and is deer and rabbit resistant. The white blooms are Verbenia and butterflies, and pollinators love it.
Bright colors of yellow, red, and white are abundant is this small flower bed. The yellow are daylilies, the white is sage. The two red plants are Canas and Scarlet Red Firecracker Penstemon.
The bright purple clematis always brings so much color to my gardens. It is a climbing perennial, so you enjoy it year after year.
In a small bed about 6 foot in length and 3 feet wide, summer color is bold and beautiful with several perennials and some annuals planted. The bright yellow coneflower does well in this full sun bed.
Coreopsis returned from last year and with beautiful buttery yellow blooms that attract butterflies and birds. I have it in pots and in the ground.
Shasta Daisies are in full bloom with their white flowers and yellow center. They grow in clumps that are about 2-3 feet high.
A small toad is keeping an eye on the flowers.
The Speedwell is growing in another bed. It has showy purple spikes.
Pink and White Vinca are scattered in my beds for pops of color.
I have caladiums with their big heart shaped leaves producing lots of gorgeous pink, white, and green color in their foliage. This variety is called Peppermint; I love how showy these caladiums look; they are just gorgeous.
There are three types in this pot: Peppermint, the solid white with green veins is Candidum Jr., and the ones with red centers are Bombshell Caladium.
Another colorful plant on the porch is a tuberous begonia. They come in several colors, but these produces bright red blooms.
I would love to hear about the colors you have in your gardens or on your porch - Judy
