happy fourth / by Brooke

  Hoping your holiday is filled with lots of sunburns, swimming, ice cream, fireworks, watermelon, burgers, and lots of red, white, and blue.  I gathered together some of my favorite red, white and blue flowers.  Would be fun to have these all blooming together for the holiday, wouldn't it?

Reds:

1. Clematis.  Perfect for training on walls and arbors.

2. Coral Bells, Firefly.

3. Kniphofia, Nancy Red

 

Whites:

4. Allium.  These creamy whites make a great cut flower.

5. Armeria maritima, 'Alba'. Pretty groundcover that forms neat mounds.

6. White Fountain Gaura

 

Blues:

7. Sedum, Blue Spruce and Lidakense.

8. Dwarf Blue Artic Willow.  Can be found in shrub or tree form.

9. Cobalt Blue Primrose.
