Gardens Ninebark Salvia Iris Weigela

Spring weather sure isn't giving us much of a break here, but this is a few things I have in bloom right now. It's been hard not being able to spend much time outside yet. Seems like the only thing I get to do so far is mowing way more than I would like.

Salvia May Night with the shrub Ninebark Center Glow behind it. Love having the Salvia blooming.

Iris Alcazar and Iris Cemetery on the white one.

Not sure of the name, need to get it ID'd.

Not sure of the ID either.

Ninebark Diablo with buds just starting to open. Love these.

Weigela Dark Horse. Small shrub that fits with the perennials, and I love it.

Although I need very little to fill in my yard now, I find it interesting that they are getting very little in yet for the summer season. I think maybe because they haven't sold much this season here because no one can get out and plant anything. Maybe I'll luck out with some good deals. Oh wait a minute, I don't need anything. :)

Your irises are beautiful, and I love that ninebark! Just because you don't need anything doesn't mean you can't look!

Great to see your salvia blooming. I love the May Night. I'm enjoying the Rose Queen, too in Santa Fe. Hope it warms up for you soon!

Girl can you hear me ewwing and ahhing? LOL! That was what I was doing going down through your pictures. Your irises are so pretty. I have only one lone one blooming so far.I love dark foliage plants so your Ninebark and Weigela are just gorgeous.The Dark Horse looks similar to the Wine & Roses one. You have a wonderful weekend with the cute four legged kids.

Oh I forgot to tell you (old as dirt and forgetful) that moving your Red Knockouts will not phase them and they will take off blooming again once they get their roots to growing back in.

Your weigela is beautiful! My dwarf weigela died of some weird disease 2 yrs ago. I was really frustrated because I loved the flowers so much. Some of my salvia is also blooming. :o)
