Today, Saturday, was Public Tour Day, but, once again, no one came, so I spent the time taking photos and learning plant names.
The plants are all near Song Mei Ting, the Pine and Plum Pavilion, which is a gazebo from Chongqing. It was built in 1999 and refurbished in 2010.
It was the garden's original element, along with a water feature, stones along the shore line, as well as plants and the structure.
The Leycesterua formoasa (Himalayan Honeysuckle) is in bloom, as well as...
…changing blooms to berries.
An Anemone hupehensis still has lots of blooms, ...
… attracting large bumble bees (can you find one?).
A Hydrangea is begining to fade, but….
…a full-headed one or two can be seen. With 70- 75 species, without a tag it might be difficult to i.d..
The Magnolia x soulangeana of course is well past blossoming, but...
….but it does have interesting seed pods!
And eveyone's favorite, Buddleia davidii, is still ….
...sending out blooms and hoping a passing butterfly will grace it with a visit.
