June's Flowers

Pot Marigold (Calendula officinalis 'Neon' and Calendula officinalis 'Orange King') I grew from seed.
Tickseed (Coreopsis 'Jethro Tull') I bought on clearance last year. It's pretty floppy. We tried to tie it up, but much of it flopped again.
Flowering Maple (Callianthe megapotamica 'Variegatum') covered with small flowers.
Yellow Sundrops (Oenothera fruticosa) we got from our blogger friend, donaleen.
I'm proud of this Johnny Jump-up plant because I managed to start it from seed.
I don't remember planting these Peach-leaved Bellflowers (Campanula of unknown variety) under the apple tree, but we may have at some point. I wasn't so good about planning in years past; I would just buy pretty plants and put them in the ground. They could also be volunteers because the neighbors have them in their yard.
The Clematis Jackmanii 'Superba' we just planted in March has started flowering. I'm sure it would have more flowers if it got more sun, but that bed is mostly shade. I'm glad it got as many flowers as it did.
Inca Ice Peruvian Lily (Alstroemeria hybrid 'Koice') is looking lovely. I do not regret replacing the thimbleberry with this shrub in the rain garden, though it did get bigger than I expected. I planted the plants around it too close.
