What kind of flowers are these?

Hey yall....

I was wondering what these were... My tulips and what not have bloomed. The roses are growing but not as many blooms. I really wish I could have had a picture of two types. One was hot pink (oooooohhhhhhhhh) and the other was orangish-cream with pinkish edges. Talk about beautiful! Only sad thing is that they lost their petals the day after they bloomed. :(

K. I don't know if these are just overgrown or what because the bottom of the plant is like empty sticks with the green growing out of the sides. The first pic is what I took when they started growing. The second pic is now that they're blooming.
The last pics are bushes and a vinein the front yard. I don't know what they are.... didn't think of asking the neighbors LMAO... I wasn't a flower person but I'm starting to get into it. lol Mom's all proud hahahaha.

Ok the blue one's are Hydrangeas... I had to look it up to make sure that I had the right name for it....

The red are hibiscus as are the white colored ones that look like the red ones...

I'm not positive about the last ones but I want to say azaleas

I agree with the Hydrangeas. The other ones don't look like any hibiscus we have. Maybe if b2w hurry's and gets his butt on here instead of out having fun he could tell ya more....... he seems to know alot about flowers and all.

And yeah..... I think the hydrangeas are supposed to be pruned back...... might wanna read up on that one. I juss know I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee em.

So glad momma made it ok. Tell her hey...

*grin* Here I am....

The first two pictures are hydrangeas. Big leaf or florist hydrangeas to be exact - they will be either pink or blue, depending on the soil ph. Yours are blue so that means an acid soil.... which is a good thing for your azaleas.

Pruning hydrangeas is a matter of timing. Different kinds of hydrangeas should be pruned at different times of the year. That's because each different kind sets it's flower buds at different times of the year. Yours set flower buds in the late summer and early fall at the ends of the lateral branches (in other words this year's green wood is next year's "dead" wood that the flowers will come from).

Bigleaf hydrangea should be pruned as soon as the flowers have faded. You should begin to see new growth coming in from the base of the plant. To keep the plant vigorous, selectively prune out the dead and weaker stems, both old and new. Donít prune out all the old wood, since this is what will keep flowering as the new growth matures.


The next two photos are azaleas- photo #3 is most likely a Girard's Scarlet Azalea. It looks to be healthy, although clearing the dead oak leaves away will make sure it doesn't end up with rust or leave mildew. A good mulching with pine straw (fancy name for freshly dead pine needles) in the fall will give extra protection in the winter and keep the soil on the acidic side - which azaleas love. Every 3 or 4 years an application of chelated iron will keep the leaves from getting yellowed.

The big bushes with white flowers (pix #4) also appear to be azaleas - most likely a Kurume Azalea known as 'Snow'. These can grow to be about 6 feet tall. I would suggest pruning them rather aggressively next spring after the flowers drop: cut them back to the height you want them to be (about half the height they are now) and trim back almost all of the branching foliage from the main trunk and branches. Do this before it gets real hot in your area and water them deeply. You'll only need to do this extreme pruning every 5 years, but you will be well rewarded with loads of flowers in the intervening years.

The last picture... I'm just not sure of. I cannot tell how tall the plant is or if the foliage around the flowers belongs to the plant the flowers are on.... If the bottom one is a vine, white clematis might be a guess. Do the blooms have a fragrance?

b2w got daaaaaaaaaaaaaang!!! lol Let me bask in your horticultural ambiance one time!!!! I appreciate ya!

The last ones have bloomed and shriveled so I didn't get a chance to stick my face in them lol but from what I remember they didn't have a strong scent at all.

There are so many things planted that I'm at a loss. I went to Lowes today and found a japanese maple that cost 90 bucks! I was floored. There are two planted outside the house! lol and they were bigger. I wonder how much they'd go fer.... j/k

Singing Otter I know how you feel!!! The bigger the tree or bush the more expensive it will be. It all depends on how fast you want to be able to see results. 4 years ago I bought this 5 foot tall flowering red bud from lowes for like $20. Now it's 12 ft tall, which they wanted over $100 for one that big. Every spring we buy a couple trees, shrubs, etc, and in the fall I buy bulbs. Some bulbs are suppose to be planted in the fall others in the spring so you have to watch that too. But after 5 years of slowly adding this and that our front yard was beautiful this year. Now we are selling our house and moving I've learned a lot of this in the last 4 or 5 years, so when we get to the new house, it shouldn't take as long to have it looking good. Just a lot more work because it's A LOT bigger yard!!!!!

Oh yea, I almost forgot. They have a violet color bloom type of azelea too. Those are my wife's favorite and they seem to bloom before the other types. Our's bloom violet, red, white about 2-3 weeks apart.

I always feel that way when I move to a new place. Over the years I've adopted a strategy that you might be able to use.

Year one: make sure everything (except obvious cacti ) gets watered throughly. Make a map of what comes up and put markers in the ground for anything that looks like a seasonal plant.

Digital cameras make life so much easier now! Take pictures, haunt the local arboretum (the docents LOVE to talk and are a wealth of knowledge).

Identify what you can, learn about the care of each type of plant you have growing. In a mature garden (like what you have inherited) there are going to be pruning issues, transplanting issues (things that used to be in sun are now in shade because the trees are older than when things were first planted) and fertilizing issues.

Once you know what you have, how you should care for it and when the care should be given - get a calendar for year two and mark down what chores should be done when.

Landscaping represents a considerable part of the value of your property. It's not all that difficult to learn how to take care of it. Your local state agriculture station can help loads.

Good luck!

I love redbuds!!!! In the spring they are all over here in the county...it's one thing that we're known for. That and the autumn foliage. Well I guess having over 350 small shops doesn't hurt! browncounty.com

Hey, I've been to the Azelea Festival. Right there on Oleander Drive!

BTW I used to go fishing in Long Creek. Used to turn right by the fire department to get to the landing.


JD, is there anywhere you haven't been???!!!

LMAO no way!! I love the Azalea Festival...love the street fair lol, and Riverfest. Long Creek man, I used to live there too, Rocky Point, but Long Creek really. You probably passed my road a lot, a loooong dirt road with a field next to it, either corn, soybeans or winter wheat in there lol, horse pasture with a few horses in there. Small world. I think you and I may have chatted in the chatroom on here during Red Earth, not sure though lol.

Actually, the parade route was on Third St.

And I used to stop at the gas station on Long Creek Rd and 421 or the little white store in Long Creek to get last minute things!

I think you and I may have chatted in the chatroom on here during Red Earth, not sure though lol.

Here in Terrace Heights (a hillside suburb east of Yakima) the soil SUCKS. It's brown clay it looks and feels like rubber. Dry, it's hard as rock. Wet, it's gumbo soup. The yard was neglected for many years and everything was under these two huge mature elm trees. There was very little else, no flower beds in front, and just a row of overgrown and unpruned arborvitae align the western boundary.

First to go were both elms, one along the driveway and one in the back yard. This is a neighborhood lot, the driveway is only about 50' long so it's not like a "road" or anything. There was also a fir of some sort in the back yard, lots of holes from worms. Of two weeping willows, one was 90% dead (since been cut down, 90% of the stump is like shredded wheat). A white pine was also downed just for aesthetics, it really didn't look good where it was.

Along the driveway, there is now a rototilled flowerbed under a light coating of cedar bark mulch. Two weeping Alaskan Cedars and a red laceleaf male now adorn the variety of flowers and several azaleas. I don't know how the azaleas will do, it isn't really that acidic soil but they seem to be surviving. The three new trees appear to be establishing well. The elm's stump will serve as ... something .... dunno yet.

In the front lawn, I dug four wide holes about 1' deep each, scooped out the clayish soil and planted two "Dynamite" crape myrtles that have sprouted all sorts of new shoots and leaves, a dawn redwood and a gold locust. In a small dirt area at the corner of the driveway there is a forsythia and another red laceleaf maple, both of which will eventually be shaded by the dawn redwood as it potentially grows to around 120' tall over the next 2-3 decades. The root balls have been surrounded by high-quality Miracle Grow "tree soil" to 6" below and 12-18" to the side. 2-3" of cedar bark mulch crowns the soil. All trees appear to be establishing well, especially the crape myrtles. All are in full sun, our region averages 300 days of sunshine and only 7" of rain per year and temperatures from the single digits by winter to high 90's to low 100's by summer. However as most people in this area do we have irrigation piped in from a local canal and a comprehensive array of mist and impact sprinklers with underground plumbing.

On the northern, shady side of the house there are flower beds lines with azaleas and a couple of miniature rhodies. Perhaps the soil is slightly acidic because they all seem to be doing well. One flower bed, triangular in design, is enclosed by a new grey tile walkway and is adorned with a new contorted blue atlas cedar and a white rose bush. Just a few feet east of the row of arborviteas (which have been neatly pruned to 8' tall this Spring) are three new red bayberry bushes.

In the back yard, a stepped flowerbed that used to have the white pine and still has a green bayberry, now has also a yellow bayberry in the top step. The middle step is now home to a baby paulownia (aka. royal empress) that seems to be taking root and surviving. It's rapid growth rate, hyped on several internet sites, hasn't even started to show a hint of happening yet. I suppose it will resemble a young catalpa in a couple of years. The surviving weeping willow looks fairly healthy, but is old and has not been pruned in many years (if ever). At over 50' tall and 50' wide, I think it can stand to come down to 25' x 25' since it is now exceeding its own capacity to intake nutrients ... a few branches were dead and have been pruned. The vast majority of this tree's branches are healthy and display lots of new growth (for the year).

A white lilac bush used to grow near a back corner of the house, it took an hour and being chained to my minivan to actually get ripped out. For now, everything seems to be doing OK.
