I am happy to offer some new things blooming in our garden this week. It’s time for In a Vase on Monday, hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.
Exciting color has exploded here as the chaste trees, and garden phloxes have come to life.
The chaste tree (Vitex agnus-castus) is a family heirloom grown from cuttings taken from my aunt’s garden in Chatham, VA. The white phlox is ‘David’. I found the pink one in a garden shop in Falls Church, VA over thirty years ago; it was labeled “Pink Phlox.” Despite its unknown heritage, it has survived at least ten moves and divisions in three gardens. It is a winner. The blue hydrangea is ‘Endliess Summer,’ probably my most reliable hydrangea.
Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see her beautiful vase this week and that of others who join in sharing the bounty of their gardens.
