This is a garden that I take care of, and the mid-summer bloom is quite nice. If you are needing a boost of cheerful color, maybe a variety of Coreopsis might do the trick.

‘Moonbeam’ and ‘Tickseed’ Coreopsis varieties are planted in this particular garden bed. I love the combination of these two with English Lavender.

I leave the Oriental Poppy seed heads for texture and interest. The Goldenrod is about to burst into golden color, while the pretty Larkspur offers splashes of purple and pink. The Lamb’s Ear contrasts with its blue-gray foliage. And who says that Hollyhocks are just alley plants? These Hollyhocks add height and different hues of pinks to the palette.





‘Moonbeam’ Coreopsis offers this beautiful display of yellow flowers.


Pretty, Pretty.
