Someday’s you will find me weeding and others I’m just walking taking photos and enjoying what’s growing. In this post, I share some of my July summer favorites in my home garden.
Greenhouse Landscape Garden Favorites
Heading out to my 10’x12′ greenhouse you will find a beautiful collection of hydrangeas and hostas before stepping out on the grass.
Growing in a container just outside of the mudroom to the greenhouse is the Gryphon begonia. One of my favorites to grow since 2012 but it doesn’t do well in my home as a house plant or in the dome garden. This begonia loves to be hot and dry soil.
Hydrangeas have been a favorite since moving to the country. I feel in love with the Oak Leaf Hydrangea. The oakleaf Hydrangea was so easy to grow I soon added more varieties to the home garden.
The Greenhouse Summer Garden
In the raised bed gardens you will find many different herbs, perennials and even shrubs growing in containers. In these photos, I share a few of my favorites from the summer garden.
Tropical Hydrangea in containers that were stored in the greenhouse over the winter come alive. Summer in this garden is really one of my favorite subjects to photograph.
In the photo above you will find Strawberry Blooms Next to the Sweet Potato Container Planting just outside the greenhouse door.
Favorites From the Raised Gardens
In the photos below I share my favorites from the raised beds where you will find herbs, vegetables and more!
In The Landscape
There is no other lily that stands out like the Orienpet Lily ‘Silk Road”. This huge, intoxicatingly fragrant 8″ flowers that are borne on spires up to 2′ across. I purchased this lily at Walmart in 2012 as part of a Cancer Awareness promotion. The lilies grow surrounding the south side of the greenhouse garden.
Do you spot the pink flower? Can you guess what it is? It is one of the first dahlias I grew from tubers in my landscape. I believe this is the Melody Pink Allegro variety. The plant was super easy to grow in the landscape just be prepared to wait until later in the summer for the bloom show.
The doubling rose of Sharon : Lavendar Chiffon by Proven Winners was one of the first shrubs added just outside the greenhouse.
