These Asiatic lilies decided not to open up unti after the hailstorm that shredded my hostas Francee and Frances Williams, at left. Still, these hosta have grown so much in their first two years – tripling their size from last year- that we’ll need to divide them at the end of the summer.

Here’s a view north from the middle of the rain garden: clockwise from top we have blue flag iris, red-twig (Ivory Halo) dogwood, hardy hosta, milkweed (or boneset?), bottle-brush, then some red lobelia.

This is the first year of blooms for those native Siberian (blue flag) iris… they too waited until after last weekend’s hail, to open up.
