TODAY'S FLOWERS #310


The fourth and final post from our trip to Cox Farm.  These are the flowers we found there.

Not exactly a flower but a plant.  Pretty and colorful, Ornamental Peppers.



The next two photos are Chicory - Cichorium intybus.







The Blanket Flower - Gaillardia





I am not sure what these are.  They were growing in a planter and with no identifying marker.

  2. The last picture is the remnants of spider flowers, they are purple and blue colors. I adore chickory! And if you look really close, they have sparkles inside! Blanket flowers are a close second though, so brilliant!!

  9. They are very beautiful, i miss my gaillardia. It has been dwindling during our dry season so i kept it in partial shade. However, it's been rainy seson and it still grows so slowly not reaching the growth and flowering last year. At least it doesn't die as it is not yet fully acclimatized in our climate.

  19. I didn't know what chicory looked like. I like the blanket flowers, but they don't like it much here. They did well in a container last year.

  21. Oh, these are all lovely. I think the one commenter is right about the one flower being cleome...seems like I heard it called that. Just the other day but I can't think which blog...

  22. They are Cleome's ad the common name is Spider Flower Denise.
    This colour is lovely - I had white and pink ones in my old garden - but I didn't know there was a lavender one.
    Something else to put on my list for summer planting. I like that they grow tall and give structure to the flower border!

  28. You found some great flowers. Blanket flowers are native here and I love how they pop up all over my garden. I need to spread them more around the garden I think.
