All in Purple


My old Rhododendron 'Roseum elegans' is starting to bloom.



A broadleaf evergreen shrub, Rhododendron Roseum Elegans makes a great selection 
for those moist, shaded locations. It has large leaves in hues of dark green and 
large clusters of flowers that bloom lilac-pink, opening in May and are hard to beat!





So are Allium 'Purple Sensation'...





Then I found this tiny aquilegia seedling, in purple too.


Also Osteospermums are starting to bloom...


Wishing you a colourful new week to come!

And wishing you a Happy Midsummer with this 
white Midsummer rose - Rosa spinosissima.

  3. Einfach wunder-, wunderschön, liebe Riitta! Ich liebe es Ton-in-Ton bei Blumensträußen. Im Garten ist es mir noch nicht gelungen. Ich habe auch den Rhododendron 'Roseum elegans'. Bei mir blüht der nicht in so kräftiger Farbe. Es sind sowieso tolle Fotos. Und die Aquilegia ist auch wunderschön. Bloß nicht die Samen wegwerfen, sondern schön aussäen.
    All in purple is so wonderful!!!
    Have a nice week
    Edith

    1. Thank you Edith :) Well, there are also some other colors blooming now, mainly whites and blues like the Finnish flag. I spared them for the next Floral Bliss - for it is Midsummer Week coming.

  12. We have moved to an environment that is too dry to support rhododendrons, and I am missing them. Thanks for bringing this beauty to all of us and some happy memories to me.
