Hello everyone! Welcome to another hot Rednesday across North America! I thought I was done with my red flowers, but, noooo! I have more. Lucky you, lol! These are 'Red Wing Butterfly' Gladiolas. They're not perennial below zone 7. I got mine from Breck's.

Here they are, unintentionally placed near white peach-leaf bell flowers and dwarf blue balloon flowers. Quite patriotic, if I must say so myself!

Next, is my Hen and Chicks flowering, with little traces of red in them!

This is Oriental Lily 'Muscadet" - love the evening fragrance!

And, finally, my red plant stand with Jade's seedlings (what's left of them!).

Have a great week!

Sue! I love your flower posts, everything is so lovely and you have flowers I've never seen before.

Love love love your red glads, I've never ever seen them before! I used to get the Brecks catalog years ago and would pour over it.

Now I'm familiar with Hen and Chicks but I've never seen a blooming one. I need to get out more in the world huh?! :)

Thanks again for hosting! Happy Rednesday to you!

Love your beautiful flowers, but the gladiolas, amazing! I've never seen that variety. Cute plant stand too. Thanks for hosting Rednesday!

Well, of course I love your red white and blue flowers! And that stand is pretty fantastic too. Another 100 degree day here, so no playing in the dirt for me :-( Glad you've got some flowers for me to look at today!
Happy REDnesday,

You came up with a good selection of reds today. I have a big hen and chicken plant but it is not blooming.

Your flowers are lovely. However the only one I am familiar with is the lily. Nice to learn about the others.

Those RED Glads are stunning, I don't think I have ever seen any like that. I remember having a plant stand like that but mine was brass or maybe it was white, anyway, I love it! Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend, Nan
