TODAY'S FLOWERS # 149

Clematis Empress
Grows 1 to 2 feet in moist soil
Full sun to partial shade
Summer to Fall

This one looks like a Peony Green Lotus but I am not 100 percent certain as there was no identifying marker nearby - medium height, 28 inches, 4 to 5 inch blooms

Hollyhocks - Althaea sylvestris - Zebrina - to 30 inches, white-purple flowers. Blooms in summer. Butterfly Nectar Plant.

Allium - Allium aflatunense


Daisy Fleabane
Erigeron strigosus
Grows in meadows during the Spring and Fall.


I can't bring the name of this one to mind, though I feel I should know what it is.

Or this one either.
Added note: I've added a few names of the flowers.

My flowers, unlike your flowers, are slow to bloom this year. I contribute the lack of enthusiasm to the biblical floods this spring.

They are all gorgeous but I love the daisy-type flowers.

I've been trying to identify one or two wildflowers without success.

Beautiful blossoms, Denise! I wasn't late with posting mine (on my A Slice of Life blog) but I wasn't home in time to link it up. I hate it when I miss linking but hey! I'm not always home. :)
