Lucifer (Crocosmia crocosmiiflora_ is a bulb which multiplies nicely and is a beautiful display
of red flowers that blooms late July into August. The foliage looks like iris.
My daughter (Lori) gave this plant to me many years ago. I have moved it several times,
but finally found the spot it loves.
A close up picture.
The purple flower is Liatris (spicata) with Lucifer in the background in another garden spot.
The yellow daisy like flower goes nicely with both of them.
My Strawberry Vanilla Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata 'Renhy')
is just starting to bloom. This is an amazing plant as it starts out
white, turns pink, then vanilla. It dries beautifully. I do believe it is
one of my very favorite plants and I would love to have several more.
If you want to see them in full bloom, search Pinterest for Strawberry Vanilla Hydrangea
and you will want one too.
