This is a new clematis that I just planted this spring called "Durandii" -
Another clematis - "Jackmanii" a tried and true favorite -
I love the old fashioned St. Joseph's Lily (Hippeastrum Johnsonii) -
And the remainder are all roses -
A new one that I bought from Petals from the Past this year is "Dame de Coeur"
"Robin Hood" is always reliable and blooms for a long time -
"The Pilgrim" is one of the David Austin English roses -
"Red Cascade" is a miniature that can get really big
"La Marne" is a carefree shrub rose that I often recommend -
"Francois Juranville" is a vigorous but thornless rambler -
"New Dawn" is another great rose - tough and disease resistant. That is the Dwarf Oakleaf Hydrangea "Sike's Dwarf" on the right -
"Marjorie Fair" is a hybrid musk that grows out in front by the road. I have received more comments on it this year than any other rose.
Another great rose is "Gartendirektor Otto Linne" - I planted a hedge of it outside the fence -
A variety of roses in the border. The red in the background is the rugosa "FJ Grootendorst". The tall pink rose in the middle is "Lyric". "Gartendirektor Otto Linne" again in the bottom and "Daydream" in the foreground.
That's it for the May Bloom Day. Carol at May Dream Gardens invites bloggers to share photos of what's blooming in their gardens on the 15th of each month.
