My flowering shrubs have been putting on quite the show this year. Even with the damages of the recent storms, they keep putting out their blooms.
This beauty is Sambucus Black Lace. The flower heads are beautiful. The recent storms I lost a branch on the left or there would be more blooms there.
This is Ninebark Center Glow. Very similar to my Diablo, but the new leaves start out with a little gold in the center and the interesting thing is the blooms are almost red they are so deep in color.
This is as good a shot as I could get of this tiny Columbine. I am just not thrilled with this black selection and if it doesn't perform better next year it will have to go. Let's hope this 90 degree weather in May is not what we can expect all the time this summer.
