Garden Bloggers Bloom Day – Entwined Gardens

Garden Bloggers Bloom Day!

Entwined Gardens – Zone 7B Wake Forest, North Carolina

It’s a trifecta for Iris…

Usually the Siberian are fist to open in March—not this year with the late freeze.

From My Mother-in-Law’s garden in Ohio—Thinking of  you Lil—RIP.


Iris germanica

The Iris are three to four weeks late blooming we did think Spring would never come! Better late than never!

My husband, Phil, love the Zebra like stripes on this these… (above & below).

This who needs grey when you can have all these shades of BLUE! This “come hither” iris was just purchased from a local grower at a road side field—unnamed—yet cherished just the same… I spotted in the field at least 50 paces away!


And a lovely gift of yellow Iris…

Iris  - Gift

Yellow Iris meandering through a bed.

This charmer lights up the woodland garden—also attracts Birds & Butterflies—I’d say that’s really a Sunshine Superman!—a gift from Master Gardener Volunteer Louise Romanoff.

Coreopsis pubescens 'Sunshine Superman'

Note to self: to move a clump further down the other side  of the path—Night Lights!



One of the Hardy Orchids—sweet little bulbs in a HOT color!

Deutzia rubens

Deutzia rubens

A lovely Chinese Deutzia from the JC Raulston arboretum.  Water falls of pink pearls opening to delicate sweet blooms edged meticulously in white growing in part shade.

Nothing smells as lovely as a Peony!  Loved by my Grandmother Martha and Mom—Elaine always a Mother’s Day Delight.   This year these were late as well… Just this one opened on Mother’s Day…

Paeonia Festiva Maxima

…Until this morning—Hello Beautiful!


Peony from Lil’s Garden

Peonies are used in Chinese medicine—Just a whiff makes me happy!

Have you tried the Tree Peonies yet?   WOW… worth every penny! Meet ‘Treasure!’

Paeonia 'Takara'

Paeonia ‘Takara’

A new addition to Entwined Garden’s last year the divine Tree Peony ‘Takara’ or ‘Treasure’… Paeonia (Intersectional hybrid) x ‘Smith Opus 2’.

Stop don’t forget to stop by Carol’s Indiana Garden and see what’s blooming around the world— Enjoy living an Entwined Life!

Happy May!

    Your garden is looking gorgeous. I think you’ve just identified something I’d been swooning over in my neighbor’s yard, Bletilla. Very attractive and your tree peony is sumptuous.

    Beautiful peonies (something we can’t grow here in Austin)! And lovely shades of purple irises.
