This week’s new blooms

There’s been a lot of new flowers blooming in the garden recently.

The most impressive was a Onagraceae Clarkia Unguiculata, that I originally mistook as “my largest” coleus in this post.

This one must have gotten mixed up with the coleus. It's actually from a cut wildflower seed packet I got from Wal-Mart for 20 cents. The packet called it a Clarkia, but a little internet research revealed its long name.

You do remember when I went to that show, right?

A purple zinnia blooms. What's unusual about this is that I didn't plant any this year. I did plant a packet of zinnias in late late summer last year, but none ever came up. Hmmm.

And the Persian Carpet mix zinnia are looking really good, too.
