Welcome to Day 4 of my ‘Week of Flowers’ – my answer to brightening up the darkest days of the year here in the northern hemisphere. Why not join me? Just post a flower a day through to Tuesday December 6th. Yes, it’s that simple!
Today I am sharing some of my favourite flowers from my Moon Bed, planted in shades of blue, cream and white. First the Echinops ritro ‘Veitch’s Blue’. Such a beautiful shape and colour…
The bees love this as much as I do! 😉🐝
Another true blue is the Camassia. Sadly they don’t last for very long. (This one is actually in the Butterfly Bed, where I have had a few for several years now).
Around the same time of year the Scabiosa ‘Perfect Blue’ begin to flower too.
I grew these from seed in our first spring here, and they have spread nicely.
Finally, Echinacea ‘Fragrant Angel’ which is possibly the best Echinacea I have ever grown… strong growth, lots of long-lasting flowers and a bee magnet. 😃
Thank you for all the contributions and comments. This is so much fun! If you haven’t joined in yet there is still time… and remember to leave a link below so we can all find the flowers you are sharing!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
