This post is an update on the flowers of the LiveDan330 gardens.
Overall, this spring has been a great one for the gardens. Most of the plants popped up healthy as ever after our very cold winter. Plenty of rain and moderate temperatures have helped quite a bit in the last month and a half. The only casualties we had were a few of our roses. Other plants did not fare so well either though. A redwood tree and some barberry bushes had some die off.
These perennial gardens were planted about 20 years ago. Every year, new treasures are added. This year, there are hybrid lilies, roses, day lilies and much more about to erupt. These are newer additions in the last few years and we are really excited to show you what they are doing now they are established! Hopefully we can get those in our next update.
In late May and early June, you can see several flowers such as hydrangea, sedum, several leafy plants, iris, and bleeding hearts among others. The garden changes radically as the snow melts to uncover mulch before the first shoots come up in early May. You can almost see the growth daily.
Perennial gardens are wonderful. Once they are established, they are very little work. The plants come up year after year and with some basic care such as mulch in the spring, you will not have to do much weeding either.
We put a slideshow together with a little sample of for you to enjoy.
This hydrangea bush is an awesome hedge.
Even before they bloom, lilies can be a great addition to your garden. Look how pretty this one is!
These flowers of the livdan330 garden will explode with color in about another month.
Groundcover can be a great way to fill cracks between stonework.
