Presenting our first ever Green Outdoors #plantoftheweek, the Shasta daisy!! Some facts about Shasta daisies: easy to care for/low maintenance, great for cut flowers, and attracts butterflies!!

Our plant of the week is Catalpa Speciosa (Western Catalpa), a tree that adds interest in every season. Thanks, @brookeforwood for the positive ID. For today a poem that captures the feeling of summer:

An Hour - Czeslaw Milosz
Leaves glowing in the sun, zealous hum of bumble bees,
From afar, from somewhere beyond the river, echoes of lingering voices
And the unhurried sounds of a hammer gave joy not only to me.
Before the five senses were opened, and earlier than any beginning
They waited, ready, for all those who would call themselves mortals,
So that they might praise, as I do, life, that is happiness.

Berberis thunbergii ‘Rose Glow’
An amazing shrub for year-round interest and drought tolerance. In spring notice the new growth change colour from orange to mottled white and pink; eventually maturing to a deep burgundy purple.
The fire-coloured fall leaves and shiny red winter berries contribute to its spectacular display.
Specs: Semi-evergreen, max. 5’ Tall & Wide, full to part sun, average to dry well-drained soil
Combines well with: Perovskia atriplicifolia ‘Little Spire’ and Stipa gigantea.

Our plant of the week is quite large, about 40-50 feet in height. Ok, it's a tree and it's blooming right now. That makes it unusual and desirable just in itself, but its heart-shaped leaves, statuesque form and adaptability to Colorado’s conditions make it a tree that should be used more. Do you know what it is? Leave a comment below with your guesses.

Curious plant of the week: Gingko Biloba. 🌱We love its unique fan shaped leaves and we were fascinated to learn that it's actually one of the oldest tree species on earth! 👴🏼Originating in China, gingko or maidenhair tree is used in many herbal teas because of its health benefits, including enhanced blood circulation and improved mood. #plantoftheweek #plantnerd (📷 @blisselixirs @k.l.u.r )

#plantoftheweek time! Time for #beebalm to shine. This lovely is starting to be in full bloom at my parents' community garden. I've just dried some to try in a pollinator tea blend - so peppery and tingly. 🌿I remember tincturing the red variety about three years ago, struck by sheer curiosity and drawn in by the dr.seuss quality of the flowerhead. @medicinal_weeds pointed me toward Matthew Wood's wisdom on the plant at the time and I'm excited to revisit more in depth! ✨What have you experienced with Monardo?

The BHB #PlantOfTheWeek by @robandtheplants is the Sideshow Bob, errr.... Boston Fern. ⠀

This famous fern, like most, is found in the undergrowth of humid rainforests so that means to keep a prizewinner you have to keep it well misted! If you've not got time for that, keep it next to the shower. Another trick to raise humidity (that can look classy) is to keep the plant on a tray of pebbles. You need a rich, organic and free-draining potting mix, I've recently found manure & coconut coir to work like magic (and better for the environment than peat). You can get the fronds (leaves to you and me) up to 2 metres long, but these guys need a lot of access to nitrogen for that, so make sure feed once a month.

🌼요일엔 #오늘의꽃
오늘의 꽃은 순수함이 매력적인 #나리(#Lilium)입니다.
나리꽃은 세종실록 같은 아주 오래된 책에도 등장했을 만큼,
오랫동안 우리나라에서 사랑을 받아온 꽃이랍니다.
-
나리와 백합을 구분하기 어렵다고 생각하는 분들이 많은데요, 사실 두 꽃은 같답니다. 나리는 순 우리말이고, 백합은 흰꽃이어서가 아닌, '百合' 양파처럼 겹겹이 되어있는 구근 때문에 붙여진 한자이름입니다. 🌷
-
또한, 벼슬아치를 부르던 '나리'와도 이름이 같은데요. 📚 때문에 관직에 오르기를 기원하며 그렸던 '책가도'에 나리꽃이 자주 등장했답니다.

봉숭아, 분꽃과 함께 여름이면 뭇 처녀들의 💅손톱을 붉게 물들였던 나리! 순수한 모습이 매력적인 나리는 서울숲 2번 출구 앞, #군마상 에서 만나볼 수 있습니다. 또 다양한 색의 나리가 서울숲 곳곳에 피어있답니다. 무슨 색이 있을까요? 오셔서 직접 확인해 보세요 ☺️

#PlantOfTheWeek

Aubrieta

When the rockery was all the rage in British gardens, aubrietia was top of the heap, literally. Though fallen from favour in recent years, there’s much to be said for this evergreen perennial, which in spring produces cascades of flowers in purple, blue, pink or red to carpet raised beds and stone walls.
