Today we have more photos from the wonderful garden of Elle Ronis in Stamford, Connecticut. (See a previous post from her here.)
Native to Mexico, Cosmos bipinnatus (annual) is easy to grow from seed, provides a long season of bloom, and is a great cut flower.
Fencing to keep out deer is covered with clematis.
Opium poppies (Papaver somniferum, annual)
Now is a good time to sow opium poppies in many gardens; they’ll germinate as the ground warms in the spring.
The front entry
This clematis has gone wild, spilling over the fence. Many of the clematis in the garden grow on teepees made from tall stakes. The clematis love to grow on them.
I have hundreds of daylilies that I plant in a multicolored border.
I used to be an avid orchid grower. I had ten thousand plants growing under lights in my basement.
