What Is That Flower?

What Is That Flower?

Have you ever passed a beautiful garden on an early Summer day and thought “what is that flower? I want one!” I have, so I took a quick stroll through my mom’s flowers and quizzed her on what they are. So let’s start with the white one here…do you know? 

It’s scientific name is Vanhoutte Spirea otherwise known as “Bridal Wreath” and it grows six to eight feet tall. It’s been known to be used in a bride’s hair and bouquets for hundreds of years. You should see them out now in Maine and is usually an early Spring bloomer. I want one!

If you have the Bearded Iris, you see them out in Maine now. There are many different types of Iris plants and all are perennials. They easily spread so you may spot them in spots you wouldn’t expect.

Lilly Of The Valley is my favorite Spring early Summer perennial. It’s so fragrant and beautifully compliments a white vase. The small bells dangle one over the other in a perfect cascade while peeking around its long, thick, deep green leaves. Just ask Brooke Shields, She had a special bouquet flown in for her wedding to Andre Agassi. Much like flowers dying so did their marriage so if you’re getting married, may I suggest a nice mix of fake ones? ; ) (photo below curtesy of YouTube)

As the Lilacs are fading, out pop the Lupine and Columbine. It’s a beautiful time in New England although our noses and eyes may beg to differ. Do you have a beautiful shot of your early Summer garden? Add a picture and show it off!
