What's in Flower - June

Here's everything flowering in my garden today. Winter has arrived, but there's still plenty to see.

Cymbidium orchid - Peter Pan X Snow Eagle "Malcolm":

Vireya "Chayya":

Vireya "Clare Crouch":

Grevillea "John Evans":

Tree dahlia (Dahlia imperialis):

Unknown callistemon:

Bergenia bud just starting to open:


Rose "Queen Elizabeth":

Crassula ovata:


Violets (Viola odorata):

Mexican sage (Salvia leucantha):

Sasanqua camellia  "Showa No Sakae":

Can you see the tiny orange spider or mite on the right-hand flower?

Bethel sage - Salvia involucrata 'Bethelii':

Another lavender:
This is a seedling that came up in my garden last July. It would have been nice if it had been some amazing new variety, but it looks pretty much the same as my other lavender.

Salvia "Indigo Spires":


Fringe flower, Loropetalum chinense var rubrum:
I had to get under the leaves to see the open flowers. But there are lots of buds, so the full display should happen by next month.

  1. Anyone would think it was spring with all those beautiful pink and mauve flowers in bloom in your garden.
