Updated Monday, May 22, 2017. 121 taxa in bloom in the garden, nearly double last week! That's what a couple of 90F days (30+C) will do for us. The Modern Garden is awake, except for the Viticella Group rows, and they're coming along. So far the largest bloom anywhere was an 11" blossom of 'Luther Burbank' in the greenhouse, but it is now quite faded. Outside, 'Kacper' in Bed 18 (Old Poland) is the broadest so far.

Clematis patens 'Manshu-ki' and its partner Enkianthus 'Showy Lanterns' are even prettier this week than last!
