What Blooms in May in My Tennessee Garden?

Here is what blooms in my Tennessee garden in May 2010. There’s always a lot to see this time of year and I’m sure I’ve missed some things but here we go!

Red Achillea
Patio Garden – Garden Shed in the background
Achillea, Phlox pilosa, and Catmint Combination
Deck Garden – The irises here are done but the foliage still remains.

Nepeta faassenii (Catmint) ‘Walker’s Low’
Around the Witch hazel with oregano sprawling around.

(grown from seed of an ‘Oranges and Lemons’ Gaillardia, definitely not true to type!)

White Iris next to a Japanese Maple

Asclepias tuberosa (Orange Butterfly Weed)
Rain Garden
Buds are all over

and Flowers are underneath!

Self-sowing Garden
