I love Geums and decided to use them with some shades of blue in my vase today. What a summery combination it makes too, especially with the bright sunlight. 😃
The darker orange one on the right is Geum ‘Scarlet Tempest’. The colour is vibrant and stands out well in a flower bed.
The paler orange one is Totally Tangerine – one that I had difficulty in finding here until last year. It is doing exceptionally well considering it is still relatively new to the garden.
This lovely pinky orange one is called ‘Bohemia Pink’. It can’t decide if it wants to be pink or orange, but since both colours mingle so nicely it doesn’t matter!
The blue Aquilegia are actually even bluer than they appear on the photos, for which I am grateful… my last garden became inundated with purple ones, which are also nice, but within limits!
And finally, the Camassias. I could only bear to cut two, one of the paler ones from my Moon Bed, and a deeper blue one. I am afraid I have forgotten their names.
Tucked into one side are a few sprigs of the orange foliage of Spirea ‘Magic Carpet’, and the whole vase is filled out with some Alchemilla mollis, just about to burst into flower, but lovely for its soft foliage too.
I am joining Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for her weekly meme, where we are invited to share a vase of goodies from our gardens. And what better time of year to do just that!
Wishing you all a wonderful gardening week.
