I'm more veg gardener than flowers, but I do love my lilacs. We planted a bush the first year we moved in here.


Hi Jean! I plant Alstroemerias all the time - I don't like the florist hybrids, either - I prefer the taller species ...they are really satisfying as garden plants, but they DO flop all over the place and need some structural plants around them to contain them a bit.
In my own garden I never heed my own advice, and they flop away and are constantly trampled by my dogs. But the wonderful peachy-gold flower is just yummy, and when it is blooming at the same time as my Rosa 'Red Ballerina' - super cool!

I am very jealous of your beautiful Hellebores!
