The Sun Garden is far and away the most eye-catching garden at the moment.
I did not imagine when I started them from seed two years ago how large and plentiful the Rudbeckias would become, dominating the whole Sun Garden.
I believe the seed blend was called "Chocolate-Orange".
My favourites are the ones that have a bronze hue to them rather than a golden yellow colour.
This dwarf dwarf variety is an improvement over last year, but I have enough yellow in the garden and next year will look for strictly orange Nasturtium.
Fertilizing Nasturtium can make the leaves grow without additional blooms, so this year I have not fertilized them and I have been deadheading the leaves on occasion.
The Milkweed is just starting to bloom as well.
The Gaillardia are blooming but not as profusely as last year, could it be that the Rudbeckia are stealing some of their sunshine?
Lots of Rudbeckia in vases inside the house as well as at work, there are just SO many.
The red Monarda did not bloom at all last year in its first year so I am glad to see it showing off this year.
The purple Liatris in the old Sun Garden are looking magnificent intermingled with the golden Heliopsis.
There is plenty more blooming in other gardens at the moment. Stay tuned for further updates.
