What a beautiful flower! All of you keep posting pictures of marvelous plants that I've never heard of and I fall in love. I am afraid that I have Jim McKenney's definition of a 'white trash garden', in that I see something lovely posted on this list and I want it, regardless of practicality, my skill level, etc. There are pots, tubs and beds crammed with, well, not pass-along plants, but certainly a hodgepodge of unrelated and disorganized plants that give me a great deal of pleasure. Thank you for sharing your beauties. Kathy Stokmanis Northern California, Sierra foothills, zone 8/9, no rain since April but it's been a lovely summer, mostly in the 90's instead of our usual 100+F. Bletilla ochracea is still blooming but I think it will finally finish next week.
