Gratuitous Lilacs...and a Geum

'Beauty of Moscow' lilac, which I recommend as it does not sucker.

'Prairie Flame' geum is gorgeous, but I only see the flower by holding the camera under it and randomly shooting.  It needs some sort of raised bed or hillside outcropping to show off its beauty to advantage, not unlike hellebores.

  1. Your lilacs are fabulous, and I can just imagine the fragrance. I have a common lilac that isn't blooming this year, but I'm sure I didn't prune it too late.
