Some of the plants our friend gave us, but not yet named.

Think this might be a hardy fuchsia

Nice pics Billy. The first two are fuschia, and the last is gooseneck loosestrife. I'm not sure what I'm looking at in the third - can you take a close-up? It might be a St. John's wort - there are many varieties.

I think it's Hypericum androsaemum 'Albury Purple' - purple St. John's wort. I thought it looked like a St. John's wort!

Billie,
I have just returned from a week long trip and was surprised to see my garlic chives blooming!!! Have had this particular pot of chives for over 3 years and this is the first bloom. So excited to see yours so I will know what to expect from mine.

Thanks for the photo and for sharing your beautiful garden with us.

Blessings,
Mary Ellen
