A week of Flowers 2022: Day Five

I am having a great time sifting through garden photos and viewing all the fabulous flowery posts some of you have been sharing for my ‘Week of Flowers’. Designed to chase away the grey and chill of these December days, it is open to everyone. So feel free to join in and simply post a flowery photo or two a day through until Devember 6thโ€ฆ and leave a link below. We are already on Day Five – goodness me, these past few days have flown by!

My first photo today is my gorgeous Himalayan Foxtail Lily ‘Eremurus himalaicus’. I know they are fussy plants, so I am keeping my fingers crossed they will flower again next year. They were amazing!

And my other flowers today are Asters. They always do well in my garden, even after a very hot and dry summer. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Looking forward to seeing what others are sharing today.


Have a warm and flowery Sunday everyone!

    • Thanks Frank! I am keeping my fingers crossed for the lilies and have planted a couple moreโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜‰ If one flowers I’ll be happy. They are pretty pricey though.

  5. Your Himalayan Foxtail Lily is a star Cathy and must look magical especially at dusk. I hope that yours comes through the winter and makes an even bigger clump next year. I’ve seen the bulbs for sale at horticultural shows and have been fascinated by them.
    Probably not enough sun in my garden for them to flourish ๐Ÿค” Your asters always appeal to me. My post today is here : https://greentapestry.blogspot.com/2022/12/a-week-of-flowers-2022-day-5.html

    • I have to admit to planting a couple more foxtail lilies, so I hope at least one will flower for me next year. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The bulbs are so weird. Like some kind of sea creature!

  6. For some reason I was unable to post the specific link today. I wish that Blogger and Wordress would play together happily!

  7. Foxtail lilies are yet another flower I covet but don’t have a chance of growing in my climate. Our closest substitutes are foxtail agaves (Agave attenuata, which bloom and then die) and Drimia maritima (aka sea squill).

    • I consider myself incredibly lucky to have had those foxtails flower for meโ€ฆ I have seen them in a garden near us and thought it would be worth trying. I will be waiting with bated breath to see if they flower again for me! Good that you at least have something similar you can grow Kris.

  10. The Himalayan Foxtail Lily โ€˜Eremurus himalaicusโ€™ is nothing short of spectacular! I hope you can count on that again next year. ๐Ÿ™‚
