Alphabet Soup ~K~

Postby CdnChelsea » Mar 07, 2012 9:08 am

:oops: Even though I am lax in posting how beautiful all your flowers and gardens are, I do admire each and every one of them.

Presenting the letter "K"

Kiss-Me-Over-The-Garden-Gate (KMOGG)


KMOGG is self seeding IF the chipmunks would quit eating them. KMOGGs' stem looks like bamboo and when it emerges from the ground, the stem is bright red. The ones in the picture were not planted by me. They grow everywhere and I don't mind.

A letter with no Daylily in sight. Alas, I will have to sit this one out and enjoy everyone else's pictures. Clyde

Kiss me over the garden gate is the only one I've got too. Might as well post it anyway. Do have Kalmia, but no pics, so will make sure to get some for next soup

I was really wondering if I had miscounted the days!!!!

Kolwitzia (Beauty Bush) takes center stage in our garden towards the last of June.


This year our Kerria japonica were so heavily laden with blooms that thay drooped to the ground.

The Kalmia latifolia are very pretty at all stages, from buds to bloom.

I have had KMOTGG but it didn't re-seed. I still have seed and am trying to get some started again.

I want to share my Ks.

Most of the K's I have are already posted but since I don't think there can be too much of a good thing I am going to show my Kolwitzia as well.

A few years ago I was admiring Kniphofia in a magazine and the lady next to me said "so gaudy" and went on to say that she would never grow anything that tasteless in her garden! I didn't mentioned to her that I had just bought some seeds and now I have a very nice patch of various gaudy tasteless colours that I like very much. Clara, nice to see you also have it.

Now this K has not been posted yet which surprises me. It was in all the nurseries here last Spring and I bought a very cheap small one to see how it would do. It grew like crazy, stood up to the high amount of wind I get in that spot and I really like it for containers. The left was taken late fall and the right in November so for an annual grass, it stands up very well. King Tut Grass (Cyperus papyrus)

No K's for me: I added Kinphofia for my hummers last year but it didn't bloom so I dug it up in the fall and brought it into the garage, I noticed yesterday it has a bloom starting so it may bloom long before the hummers arrive in Alberta.
