Spiderwort is a shade loving perennial normally found in open woods. It grows best in zones 3-10, and can be found in blue, pink or white.

Mazus is a low creeping ground cover. It tolerates occasional foot traffic so it is an excellent choice to use between stones or in a rock garden. It grows best in zones 6-9.

Drew said...

Wow, those are incredible flowers.

kris said...

Your lupines are beautiful!!! I've never seen the mazus before - looks very cool (unfortunately, not hardy here - drat).

Lynn said...

These are absolutely awesome!
I think these are my favourite of the day.

mine is up

Lilli said...

I love lupins! They're just so outrageously abundant. I'm not familiar with mazus, though.

Ann said...

Great pictures and beautiful flowers. I've posteed some of mine. Please stop by.

Too bad Jimmie ran out of gas on Sunday. I think he might have had a chance to win otherwise. :0(

That mazus is beautiful. I've never seen it before. I guess because I am in zone 5 and it doesn't grow here.

Your dinner looked delicious!

Hi Cris and Laurie, nice selection of flowers and you carn't beat blue ones they really work for me.Very interested in the Mazus, never heard of it but it is a lovely flower.Your dinner looks nice as well, funnily enough we are having something similar but with Southern fried chicken strips. With the chips we put cheese over them and put them back into the oven so that it melts all over them, delicious.
Could you explain what all the zones are about, as i keep seeing them but not sure what they mean. I am guessing time zones.

Cheers Mark
