Next up is Astilbe 'Rheinland', of which I have several. That's a Stella de Oro daylily blooming next to it.
And then I have Astilbe 'Visions in Pink' with Coral Bells 'Citronelle' on right. I absolutely love that lime color!
Here is my rescued Double white peony. It only has one bloom this year, again, but I am hoping that it continues to thrive.
No one grows Hosta for their flowers, with the exception of Fragrant Hosta, but here is a 'Frances Williams', one of the first hostas I ever bought. It now grows all over the yard after several divisions. Did I tell you that I have over 130 hosta plants?
I also have a patch of Houttuynia. The blossoms are insignificant. BUT, deer and rabbits do not like the citrus smell and will avoid the area. It can be a nuisance since it spreads like crazy, but I have yet to deal with that problem in the area it grows. What I call the 'back swamp'.
And so I leave you with this panoramic shot of that front area that I tore out in 2012, replanted, and blogged about. I've posted pics of many of these plants already this year.
