Hemerocallis 'Late Embers' not so late this year
Hydrangea 'Pink Diamond' steals the show and she is not even Pink
Gleditsia 'Ruby Lace' contrasts nicely with Catalpa bignoniodes 'Aurea'

Boccelli Garden as a Drive By
Considering the drought and the heat this summer, the Boccelli Garden is looking quite respectable this week. There is a rapid-fire explosion of daylilies this year. I tried to select cultivars that would distribute a splash of color throughout the garden and the season. 'Late Embers' is almost a month earlier. Perhaps this year it should be called 'Midsummer Embers' ? 'Sandra Elizabeth', a beautiful yellow cultivar that gardening friends passed along to me is not even in bud yet, so there still is something to look forward to.
