Blue skies may be hard to find this week, but all #gardens need rain sometime! Our Stokesia 'Peachies Pick' will hold up to hot days or rainy nights, with gorgeous #blue and #purple #flowers over clean foliage. Long blooming, butterfly loving, #deerresistant and #native - what more could you ask for in a #perennial? #plants #plantlife #instaflower #instaplant #stokesia #stokesaster #purpleflowers #fullsun #nativeplants #butterflygarden #ctgrown #inbloom #DeepRiver #connecticut

Get 'Bloomstruck' by our Hydrangea macrophylla! Nursery visitors always ooh and aahh over this beautiful #deciduous #shrub, with lush green foliage and #gorgeous globes of #flowers. A single shrub will produce a blend of #colors in the #summer, with #pink, #blue and #purple all at the same time. Best in partial sun. #hydrangea #hydrangeamacrophylla #bloomstruck #blueflowers #purpleflowers #plants #plantlife #instaflower #instaplant #inbloom #plantphotography #plantsmakepeoplehappy #oohlala #oohsandaahs #DeepRiver #connecticut #connecticutphotographer #ctgrown #nofilter #summertime #horticulture

Can you hear the #bells ringing? It must be our bellflowers #blooming in the #garden! Gorgeous shades of #purple, blue and white are the hallmark of this early #summer #perennial, with tall or creeping forms, and starlike or bell shaped #flowers. Campanula are happiest in partial shade (4-5 hours of sun), or cool moist sun. #plants #plantlife #instaplant #instaflower #inbloom #summertime #campanula #bellflower #purpleflowers #ctgrown #DeepRiver #connecticut #gardenlife #star Varieties pictured include 'Blue Waterfall', 'Takion Series Blue' and 'Rapido Blue'.

Truly, we #grow reblooming #daylilies in all of the best #colors for a #brilliant #summer garden. Our 'Passionate Returns' is a bright cherry #pink bloomer with a green throat, and holds up nicely to the afternoon sun (so it won't fade). This pretty #daylily definitely catches the eye from across the #garden! #hemerocallis #plants #plantlife #instaflower #instaplant #inbloom #perennial #pinkflower #flower #plantsmakepeoplehappy #ctgrown #DeepRiver #connecticut #horticulture #gardenlife #summertime #greenthumb

There's nothing quite like a fierce #summer #thunderstorm. A snapshot of yesterday's #sky, moments before the #rain came down, dumping over an inch of water on our gardens in #DeepRiver. #summertime #storm #clouds #blackandwhite #gray #weather #rainstorm #thunderhead #stormy #ct #connecticutphotographer #grayscale #nofilter #nofilterneeded #summerstorm

With #flowers that only last a single day, we are all about everblooming #daylilies to extend the season. Our rebloomer 'Barbara Mitchell' is a large #flowering, soft #pink with a slight #petal crinkle, and a buttery yellow center. Pastel colors are perfect for a #cottagegarden, and this beauty is best for the middle of the #perennial border. #plants #plantlife #instaflower #instaplant #daylily #hemerocallis #pinkflowers #pastel #inbloom #summertime #summer #plantphotography #ctgrown #deepriver #connecticut

Our 'Apricot Sparkles' Hemerocallis certainly lives up to the name! This charming, everblooming #daylily is a #cheerful alternative to the standard yellow 'Stella D'Oro', with #sparkly #peach toned #flowers through the #summer and fall. #perennial #fullsun #plants #pastel #plantlife #garden #gardenlife #instaplant #instaflower #plantsmakepeoplehappy #deepriver #connecticut #ctgrown #inbloom #summertime #hemerocallis #apricot #daylilies

For bold, #longlasting #summer #color, daylilies are the obvious choice for #perennials. Almost effortless once planted, they are available in a stunning array of hues and shapes for any #garden style. Our Hemerocallis 'Erin Lea' is big and #beautiful, with crispy #yellow ruffled #flowers on tall stems. #hemerocallis #daylilies #daylily #plants #plantlife #instaplant #instaflower #gardenlife #ctgrown #deepriver #connecticut #yellowflowers #plantsmakepeoplehappy #summertime #inbloom #greenthumb

For a predator on the #hunt, sometimes it's good to just blend in. The winter was extra cold for #prayingmantis eggs, and this is the first one we've seen. No bigger than a match stick now, it should triple in size by the end of the season. Having a diverse #insect population is a sign of a healthy #garden, and we're always excited to find these guys. #bugslife #goodbugs #green #camoflauge #blendin #ispy #tinybutmighty #tinybug #gardenlife #ctgrown #bug #plantlife #closeup #natureupclose #deepriver #connecticut #greenbug

July is all about #daylilies! We're not sure who 'Joan Senior' was, but her namesake #flower sure is #beautiful. Introduced in 1977, this #awardwinning, classic #daylily is almost #white, with a soft yellow eye, and is a standout in formal and natural #gardens alike. Hemerocallis are incredibly versatile, suited to #fullsun to #shade, and dry to wet soils. #hemerocallis #plants #plantlife #instaflower #instaplant #whiteflowers #perennial #cottagegarden #gardenlife #ctgrown #inbloom #plantphotography #plantsmakepeoplehappy #connecticut #deepriver #fleur #flora #summertime #summer #summerblooms

Winter can be tough on hydrangeas, but our 'Annabelle' is stronger than she looks. Hydrangea arborescens, the smooth hydrangea, #blooms on the current season's growth, so even an exceptional winter won't affect your #flowers. We prune ours back to the ground in the late fall, and the #beautiful full #white globes never fail in the #summer. #partshade #shade #shadegarden #garden #gardenlife #shrub #hydrangea #whiteflowers #summertime #inbloom #plants #plantlife #instaplant #instaflower #cutflowers #ctgrown #deepriver #connecticut #horticulture #pruning #greenthumb

Say #hello to our July Plant of the Month, Hemerocallis! Advances in plant breeding have come a long way from the standard orange roadside #daylily, with new #colors, shapes and sizes available for every #garden. Our 'Lacy Doily' is an adorable double, salmon #pink with yellow tips and clean foliage. Happiest in #fullsun, #daylilies will still #bloom even in fair shade. Adaptable to any soil type. #plants #plantlife #gardenlife #hemerocallis #pinkflowers #instaflower #instaplant #plantofthemonth #summertime #summer #botanical #plantsmakepeoplehappy #ctgrown #deepriver #connecticut #flowerfriday #perennial #inbloom #greenthumb
