The first dianthus bloom Homestead Verbena Blossom grape hyacinth upclose creeping phlox

A few other flowers are just beginning to bloom. You have to look really close or you miss some of them. I planted homestead verbena along the walkway at the south side of the house as a ground cover. I wasn't at all sure that there would be enough sun for it to bloom there, but it tends to take over anywhere I put it, so I wanted it in a place where it was confined. I was sure glad to see it develop buds and bloom. It's going to make a fine groundcover. Pass mouse over images for identity, or click for larger or expanded view.
