Welcome to Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day for June 2023.
Here in my USDA hardiness zone 6a garden in central Indiana we are slowly getting into the swing of summer. Many spring blooms have faded but the flowers of high summer haven’t appeared yet.
The lightning bugs (or fireflies if you prefer) are appearing at dusk and we’ve had less rainfall than usual.
But there’s still a lot to see in the garden
First up, an unknown variety of a white flowering Clematis is clamoring up and over a shrub, as it does every year. In the foreground are spireas in bloom. Someday, I’ll find the tag for that clematis and then I’ll know what it is.
Elsewhere in the garden, there’s another clematis, Clematis x triternata ‘Rubromarginata’ that also climbs up over and through other plants.
The flowers at the bottom of the picture are of a hydrangea, also variety unknown!
Gosh, there’s a lot of “variety unknown” around this place!
I do know what this flower is. It’s Digitalis lutea, with the common name Straw Foxglove.
It’s starting to fade and I need to deadhead it because it likes to self-sow in the garden.
Shall we hurry along? There are lots of flowers to see in many bloom day posts, so we shall!
Finally, I bought this native plant last year and am happy to see it has returned.
And that’s Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day here.
