I was very surprised to see that we still had irises...two years ago when we went to France at the end of May, I totally missed the blooming of all the irises and poppies. I think that because we have been having cooler weather, it's helped the lifespan of some flowers.
Oriental Poppies - these are really all one color, but when I took the picture, the sunlight made them look like they are variegated.
Dynochick calls this Purple Pavement
RhodieSalvia meadow sage ‘east friesland’Can anyone tell me what the name of this is? It will have some pinky-purpley flowers. (Update: this is some sort of Sedum).
