New Blooms

To start off this weeks blog I want to bring attention to Utah's largest native flower, the Sacred Datura or Angels-Trumpet Datura wrightii.

These beautiful flowers open at night and stay open until they are spent. They have a very sweet fragrance and are related to tomatoes and peppers.

 

Other beautiful flowers you might find in the garden include:

Hemerocallis 'Ruffled Apricot'
Daylily Hemerocallis 'Ruffled Apricot'

Hemerocallis x 'Gothic Window'
