My astilbe have suffered greatly, making flower buds but not opening. Just no way I could provide enough water. I've been moving lots of plants out of areas that are partly sunny to complete shade, just to let them recover. I am seeing lots of desiccation on leaves of hostas, so they get moved too. And this is in shady areas of the landscape.
Anyway, enough grousing and on to pictures of what is blooming. (plus check out this post for late July flowers)
