I am still not entirely sure what this tree is. I've researched online at still haven't been able to figure it out yet. I think I will take a picture up to our local nursery to find out for sure.
This is one of the new transplants. It is a Canna "Tropicanna" and has beautiful purple, orange, and pink foliage with orange flowers. I can't want until it starts blooming!
One of the rose bushes. I have two bushes with these blooms and antother one called "Diamond Jubilee" with cream roses.
Since so many of my plants are summer bloomers, I don't have pictures of them yet since they are still in the process of coming up. I found some pictures online of what my gardens will soon look like and will post actual pictures once they're up.

Society Garlic. I used a picture online because it hasn't bloomed out yet. This plant has a strong onion aroma and pretty purple flowers. I planted this in one of my back flower beds about 5 years ago and it is still going strong.
Stargazer lilies are my absolute favorite flower so I decided to try my hand at growing them. I decided to go with bulbs a couple of years ago. They have actually done really well in my beds. I just love their vibrant pink color and heavenly scent.
Shasta daisies. These were planted before we bought our home over 6 years ago, and I loved them so much that I decided to keep them. They are in my front flower bed so I get a lot of compliments on them. I've had people stop and take pictures when they are in full bloom!
Jasmine. This is a new transplant and is supposed to be a climber. I planted 2 plants near my back fence so it will vine up it. Can't wait for it to bloom.
My irises are just about to bloom. I'm not sure why they haven't already but I'm looking forward to their beautiful blooms.
I decided to edge my flower beds with orange zinnias this year. I usually plant petunias or celosia as an edger but loved the orange pop.
These are a few of the flowers in my gardens. I have many other and can't wait to get some pictures of the rest. What about you...do you garden?
