Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - June 2008 (New Jersey): Roses, Eryngium, Linaria, and More

Here are some highlights from my garden for Carol's Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day June 2008:

Star of the Republic is a wonderful rose introduced by Antique Rose Emporium. I usually do not like roses with apricot tones in them, but this one is beautiful. In addition, it blooms generously, is very disease resistant, and grows easily. She is planted in the triangle garden.

Russell's Cottage Rose is loaded with blooms that turn from deep pink to white as they age. Within each cluster of blooms you can often see a great variety of colors. This trait is quite common in the rosa multiflora hybrids. This along with their smooth canes makes multiflora hybrids my favorite climbers. She is planted in the Rose Garden.

Lunaria is one of my favorite edgers. The upward spikes add verticals to the garden and the soft colors compliment anything.
Clematis Julia Correvon with Dortmund.
Violetta and Penelope grow together on an oblesk in the Rose Garden.
Sea kale is a perennial vegetable that makes a wonderful impact in the garden. It's flowers reminds one of baby's brath.
The Apothocary Rose is one of the last old roses to come into bloom. I love the clear pink and light fragrance of the flower. The simplicity of the flower is beautiful also.

Really beautiful, the Crambe cordifolia is on my list to get as I love the frothy cloud it makes, giving height too, its very like plants I have at home.

Your blog doesn't seem to be appearing on Blotanical at the moment. I had the same problem and followed Stuart's instructions in the News area on the site, and that fixed things for me.

I think having visited my blog you'll realise how much I just love roses - yours really are beautiful too and some varieties that I certainly don't have which is always interesting!
Have a good weekend Miranda

I have always liked those Erigyium. I have never been able to grow them. Maybe because I can't spell it. ;) You have lots of interesting blooms.
