Summer azaleas27.06.2020
Have you had the pleasure to meet this extraordinary group of hybrid azaleas which can flower will into early summer? They are varieties or consequent crosses of so-called Kurume and Satsuki evergreen azaleas (but not only those) and the special thing about them is progressive flowering. They do not bloom all at the same time like the typical Japanese azaleas but open their flowers one by one for 4-8 weeks late May until mid July (in C.E.)


This one is Orchidea Empress.

The longest and the latest flowering is Perla del Verbano.

It is nodoubtedly also one of the most popular because among these tender princesses it is the least fussy variety. Why? Because these summer hybrids need special conditions to thrive: extremely well-drained but constantly moist soil and a position sheltered from late winter and early spring sunlight which might burn their buds.

And possibly the top luxury is a variety which is not only gorgeous but also flowers in autumn. Its name is Carolina.

Whichever azalea you choose give it what it needs, only so you can enjoy their beauty afterwards. And they like to be admired an they like to show off. The only question now is which one?

... and it keeps on raining cats and dogs. And the flowers drink and bloom, what a sight! And do you know what I spied with my big brown eye - this Pink Icicle camellia. Incredible to see it flower in late June, on several plants and on more locations. It seems to be the longest and the latest flowering spring camellia we have ever cultivated. Bravo!

Lily-of-the-valley shrubs in the course of time31.05.2020
Right through my office windows I can see and admire the beauty of these shrubs. They please my eyes all year round during which they change and offer multiple features. They do make me grab my camera and photograph them on regular basis. In order to get rid of my addiction (as if) I decided for a virtual rehab by exhibiting them here in their naked beauty, offering various views of their best performances. Are you ready for a ride? Warning: fasten seat belts, some of the following images may knock you off your feet ...

English common name for pieris is lily-of-the-valley shrub which refers to its flowers. They are small to mid-sized, evergreen shrubs of mostly Japanese origin (pieris japonica). But there are also two species from other parts of the world - North America (pieris floribunda - in the picture) and Taiwan (pieris taiwanensis).

The leaves are narrowly lance shaped and urn-shaped flowers are formed in either pendent or erect racemes. They can be white, pink, or even purple red. Flowering begins with the first warm days of spring, I recorded the first blooms in 2013 when the flowers open on May 13.

To be truthful pieris is beautiful much longer before it actually starts blooming: its flower buds are formed in late summer of the previous year and bear attractive colours. Thus they decorate the plant from autumn, during all winter, right through early spring.

And when they open they are definitely worth seeing. Mostly the inflorescence is pendent.

Some of them have very loooong racemes.

But flowers are not the only draw to drag your attention. Once they begin to fade new leaves are formed and in most cases they have other than green colour.

There are variegated forms, too. Flaming Silver has possibly the most striking colour of all when it comes to newly emerged leaves - vivid pink.

And when they have no buds, flowers, or new growths they are simply gently green and elegant. So choose your best one, the offer is ready wide.

Despite all negatives of current times there is one big positive - you needn't make anyone go outside, see the ladscape, feel the nature. Everyone goes to the woods or park gladly and I can sense that people more than ever appreciate what grows all around. And I have a few beautiful sights of pulsing life for you today, too.
