Northern Shade

The Pizzacato is a beautiful poppy. Are there other colours in the mix? How fortunate that it bloomed with the Dianthus. Isn't it great when the colour combinations and timing work out?

oHHHHH, your oriental poppies are fabulous. My spring is way over...but it's so fun, I get to see it all over again in your garden! Btw, the red flowered legume you saw on my blog is Sesbania punicea - or rattlebox. I got it 3 springs ago as a small seedling and it bolted up into a tree very quickly. I actually keep it trimmed to that size. It's been hardy so far in my garden. It loses all it's foliage in winter and then pops back out. Red is not a color I would normally include in my garden, but it's a nice orangey red and it's so pretty that I can't remove it! Hummingbirds like it too.
