Yet another variety of Iris siberica (I prefer Siberians to Bearded).

Campanula rotundifolia-one of the longest blooming flowers in my garden. It blooms off and on until the first frost.

Penstemon digitalis-a favorite of bees and hummingbirds. Blooms heavily even with only a few hours of sun.

More Digitalis grandiflora, this foxglove has been reliably perennial in my Zone 5 garden for a few years now, even with the low temps we had this past winter.

White Aquilegia-not sure of her name-I received this in a seed trade a couple of years ago.
Most of these are perennials, shade tolerant (except the poppy), hardy to at least zone 5, low maintenance and easily started from seed. I recommend them to any gardener looking for easy care perennials.

    Wow, lovely flowers and a beautiful garden indeed. Your garden must be very colorful and lively with such varied colored flowers and plantation in it. I simply love such gardens. Thanks for posting the pictures. What else do you plan to add in your garden?

      @Elizabeth Sagarminaga Thank you! I am always open to new additions to my garden-especially if I can grow them from seed.
