Five favourite flowers for July.

Chloris at the blooming garden    has been posting her 10 favourite flowers for July while encouraging others to join in. I along with several others, am posting my five favourite flowers for July.

Star of the month is this, name unknown, Phlox which also features in the picture above, it came from my Great Aunt’s garden, and has been flowering for weeks.

Next also in the picture above is this Dahlia, again name unknown, given to me by a client several years ago who didn’t like the colour.
Veronicastrum Fascination stands tall at the back of the border and as you can see is also loved by the bees.

Digitalis lutea is a perennial foxglove, easily grown from seed.

I often leave envious comments on blogs showing wonderful stands of Crocosmia ‘Lucifer’, I have been trying to get it to flower here for some time. Is this the start of something big?

These are my five for July, please visit some of the other blogs which are posting their  favourite flowers to see what they have chosen. Which ones are yours?
