Growing Together: Lilies cause quite a scene in flower gardens and landscapes - West Fargo Pioneer
Another class, the Oriental lilies, include the familiar deep pink and white Stargazer with their heady fragrance. The Oriental lilies tend to be shorter lived in our region, though. Another class, the martagon lilies, grow well in partial shade. A recent breeding breakthrough are called Orienpet lilies, crosses between trumpet and Oriental lilies. They combine the fragrance of Orientals with the taller, more vigorous trumpet lilies. Breeders have also crossed the Asiatic lilies with trumpet lilies and call them Asiapet cultivars. If you’re familiar with the common Asiatic lilies, expand your plantings to include other lily types. They’re even more dramatic and create quite a scene in the flower garden. If you’re branching out into other lily types, give them a somewhat protected location that receives plentiful winter snow cover. A November mulch is often recommended, although our lilies have wintered well with no additional winter mulch added.

Miss Floribunda: Flowers for shade - Hyattsville Life & Times
Japanese rather than the bearded German irises that require much more sun. The lilies in bud are not the sun-loving Oriental lilies but the shade-loving Asiatic lilies. By the time the Asiatic lilies finish blooming, Turk’s cap lilies and certain shade-tolerant daylilies will begin to bloom. Multicolored daylilies look particularly striking placed near the deep blue hydrangeas that bloom simultaneously with them.
Both Dr. Fox-Glover and I grow the David Austin English roses, which often do better in light shade than in full sun. Full sun bearing down on a Hyattsville garden is much harsher than the gentle sunlight this variety is accustomed to in its native England, and is a source of stress. I also cultivate the OGR (Old Garden Roses), many of which tolerate considerable shade and even thrive and bloom where tree roots compete with them. I have a Lady Banks rose that is actually climbing my maple and a Zephirine Drouhin embracing my redbud tree. However, few Old Garden Roses will bloom continuously through the summer, though quite a few will recur in the autumn. There are exceptions, notably polyantha roses like The Fairy, which is loaded with frothy pink blooms from May till frost. The Knockout roses are also pretty shade tolerant, and they bloom continuously.
However, most plants that bloom beneath trees only do so in the spring. Before sprouting leaves get big enough to block the sun, the plants have enough light to flower. Some just die back into the ground after flowering, while others, such as Solomon’s seal, retain attractive foliage. I am thinking of the collections I acquired through the plant exchanges at the home of Dr. Fox-Glover: multi-colored foxgloves, hellebores and columbine; ethereal blue Jacob’s ladder and cranesbill geraniums; red, white and pink bleeding hearts. From other sources, I’ve added the exquisitely scented lilies of the valley, whose white or pink flowers are followed by red berries; indigo in yellow, as well as deep purplish blue; salvias of different shades; and rose-, blue- and purple-flowering ajuga. Ajuga makes quite a handsome ground cover all summer, even after flowering, if you acquire varieties whose leaves are marked in different patterns of purple and red.
As the summer progresses, you might forego flowers in favor of shade plants with colorful foliage. Artfully placed Japanese painted ferns, coleus and caladiums can create a veritable tapestry of rich color and intricate design by late summer. Elephant ears, if you have the room, can bring the exotic jungle to your garden. The search for shade garden interest never ends, and new wonders appear all the time.
Just keep your ear to the ground, so to speak, and associate with gardeners who are happy to share plants with you. A good way to start is to come to the next meeting of the Hyattsville Horticultural Society on Saturday, June 15, at the home of Gina de Ferrari, 4306 Oliver Street. The meeting will start at 10 a.m.

From Garden to Bouquet – Growing Your Own Cut Flowers - TAPinto.net
Hybrid lilies are perennial garden favorites as well as fabulous cut flowers. Plant the bulbs of Asiatic lilies, Oriental lilies and Oriental-trumpet lilies in spring, for color and fragrance that lasts all summer long. To ensure months of flowers, be sure to plant a few bulbs of each type of lily.
Annuals play an essential role in any cut flower garden. Extend your budget by starting zinnias, sunflowers, larkspur and cosmos from seed, and supplement with greenhouse-grown transplants of snapdragons, celosia, amaranth and statice.
Foliage can elevate an ordinary homegrown bouquet from good to great, and your garden can provide all sorts of interesting options. Incorporate the leaves of perennials such as hosta, baptisia, artemesia and sage as well as flower farmer favorites such as bells of Ireland, bupleurum and dusty miller. Shrubs such as ninebark, boxwood, viburnum and holly are another source of attractive foliage and some offer colorful berries as well.
Cutting and arranging flowers is a fun way to exercise your creativity and bring the beauty of your garden indoors. The more you do it, the easier it gets, and you’ll soon be sharing your flowers with friends, neighbors, family, coworkers and everyone who stops by.

Plant sweet bloomers for really big flowers! - The Daily Courier
Deeply divided foliage adds to the character of these plants. Very drought hardy, the only way to kill this peony is with too much water.
Oriental poppy - Long tap roots help poppies establish long lives in our spring gardens. Blooms in excess of 7 inches in diameter are not unheard of on these plants. Pamper poppies with local full sun and excellent drainage and they will bloom and thrive.
Hydrangea - Hybridizing for bigger blooms continues to improve the species. Most of us know that Hydrangea arborescens ‘Annabelle,' with its 12-inch flower heads is still a stunning staple in many shade gardens. However, ‘Incrediball' has increased in popularity, as it also blooms on new wood, but its stems won't flop over under the weight of rain-soaked blossoms. A sheltered site with some shade will help to keep hydrangeas in the limelight throughout the growing season.
Dinner Plate Dahlia - Gardeners who've successfully grown dahlias in the past will find that cultivating a Dinner Plate variety like the ‘Hamari Gold' cultivar pictured, won't be difficult. Like many large flowers, dahlias thrive on more of everything: more sun, more water, more feeding. Remove side buds to enable plants to direct all energy into producing one giant flower. Stake plants for support, and expect blooms to mature in late summer.
Orienpet lily - A hybrid of trumpet and Oriental lilies, Orienpet lilies are increasing in popularity as new cultivars hit the market. Fragrant 10-inch blooms appear in late summer on sturdy 5-foot stems. Try ‘Big Brother,' a spectacular pale yellow variety that lives up to its name.
Amaryllis - Red amaryllis blooms are popular during the winter ... Jul 26, 2018
Gardening: Spangle-area gardener receives June garden of the month honor
In beds right off her deck, Johnny jump-ups were filling the spaces left from the Oriental poppies that bloomed earlier in the season. At the back of the bed, several clematis climbed a fence that backed into her greenhouse, a gift from her husband so she could extend her seasons.
Along the north fence, Carolyn built a dry creek garden filled with colorful drought-tolerant plants.
"I just laid out the hose and let the water make a channel down the slope and built the creek bed where it went."
The blue-purple of lavender mixed happily with the yellow flowers of sedums. A barrel-chested blue spruce and clumps of blue fescue ornamental grass cooled the scene with their smoky blue needles and blades. The creek ended in a small water feature planted with some cattails and pond plants with a few gold fish swimming about for color.
"The birds love having the water," she said.
Continuing around the yard, a huge perennial bed frames the subdued colors of the native landscape with plantings of lavender, salvia, Russian sage, peonies, bright orange California poppies and sunflowers and other perennials that provide color throughout the growing season. Birds and insects flitted around a flat basalt fountain; the gently moving water added just enough motion to attract them. Beyond the perennials was a small orchard that was also home to a flock of chickens.
On the southwest corner of the house Carolyn built a raised-bed vegetable garden which is home to a huge strawberry patch. We snacked on the strawberries and peas as we talked about how the basalt holds heat that help warm up the garden early.
Carolyn also earns the prize for the earliest ripe tomato of the season. Because of the heat the basalt holds, we harvested two nice red ones. This is while the rest of us struggle just to get our tomato plants to grow in this crazy spring weather. Way to go, Carolyn. Pat Munts has gardened in the Spokane Valley for over 40 years. She is co-author of "Northwest Gardener's Handbook" with Susan Mulvihill. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

15 Flowers that Rebuff Hummingbirds
Blooms that do not appeal to hummingbirds include:
CrocusesDaffodilsDianthusesForget-me-notsGardeniasIrisesLilacsLilies of the valleyMarigoldsOriental liliesPeoniesRosesSunflowersSweet peasTulips
All Flowers Can Be Useful
While different flowers may not be as useful as a nectar food source, these tiny birds may still use unappetizing flowers as favorite perches to rest on or to survey their territory, particularly if feeders or nectar-rich flowers are nearby. Hummingbirds may also nest in thick floral shrubbery that provides adequate shelter and protection from predators, even if the flowers themselves do not offer nectar. Many plants offer insects, which are an essential protein in a hummingbird's diet, as well as spider webs for nesting material. The colors of different flowers can catch hummingbirds' attention and attract them to a yard, where they can then discover other, more suitable flowers, feeding areas, and nesting sites.
If a yard has flowerbeds filled with inappropriate types of flowers, it doesn't matter how beautiful the bed may be or how lush the flowers; hummingbirds just aren't interested. Fortunately, it's easy to replace flowers in order to attract more hummingbirds without destroying the integrity of established flower beds.
Ideas to attract hummingbirds:
Watters Aqua Boost Crystals reduces water needs of flowering plants and keeps nectar flowing in your hummers' favorite plants. Especially valuable for raised beds and container gardens.
When an established flower or shrub dies, replace it with bloomers that appeal to hummingbirds.
Expand flowerbeds to include hummingbird-friendly flowers as borders or edging.
Fill in bare spots with tall hummingbird-loved flowers.
Add hummingbird feeders to flower beds to provide convenient food stations for the birds. This also will keep bird droppings out of traffic areas.
Add new flowerbeds, containers, and/or hanging pots with flowers hummingbirds can't resist.
Plant trees for hummingbirds that are attractive for nesting. I regularly find hummingbird nests in my Bradford Pear and Prescott Blaze Maple.
Flowers that are unsuitable for hummingbirds, may be enjoyable to other birds, attracting them to make use of your less hummingbird-friendly flowers. The yards most attractive to hummers include a range of flowers to meet all birds' needs, as well as other trees, shrubs, and vines that can provide food, shelter, and nesting sites for all types of birds.
OK, enough of the bad plants for hummingbirds here's a link to plants hummingbirds find irresistible:
