Tah Rah Rah Bloom-A-Day

Clematis 'Rooguchi'
Whether you have a special event planned or just want to know what to look forward to when, it's great to predict your plants' prime. Although not an exact science, I have been keeping photographic records for the past four seasons and will share them here. In this post, I'll feature plants in bloom from July 4 - 11.

Clematis 'Betty Corning' blooms for at least six weeks starting mid-June

Anything with blue in its color repertorie is great for the month of July. Just looking at it makes you feel a few degrees cooler.  
Hydrangea 'Endless Summer' is having a banner year.
Luckily, there are a lot of blue flowers for the month, from vines to shrubs to a great selection of annuals and perennials.

Peruvian daffodil or Hymenocallis

 Another option for adding some virtual cool is white or  some version of it.

Hydrangea arborescens 'Incrediball' from Proven Winners

I've developed a newfound  appreciation for Annabelle Hydrangea,I pre-empted the flop by surrounding it with a green wire cage, but it's not drooping over it like I'd expected. 

 There is nothing better than peach, orange, or coral tones to bring out the blue. Check out the next post for more color in early July.
