More Planting and More Flowers

Yesterday afternoon between thunderstorms I managed to get a bevy of new plants into the ground. Most of of them I had bought the day before during a trip to Bordine's, one of the larger local garden centers, and then there was the rest of that flat of snapdragons I started setting out a week ago. So in total I planted the following:

1 Phlox subulata 'Candy Stripe' (White-and-pink striped creeping phlox)
1 Phlox subulata cv. (Deep pink creeping phlox)
1 Phlox x hybrida 'Paparazzi Lavender' (Phlox)
1 Phlox stolonifera 'Home Fires' (Woodland creeping phlox)
1 Scabiosa columbaria ssp. ochroleuca (Yellow pincushion flower)
1 Aster novae-angliae 'Purple Dome' (New England aster)
1 Buddleja x weyeriana 'Golden Glow' (Yellow butterfly bush)
1 Anthemis tinctoria 'Sauce Hollandaise' (Dyer's chamomile)
1 Linaria purpurea (Purple toadflax)
1 Semiaquilegia ecalcarata (False columbine)
1 Mazus reptans (Creeping mazus)
1 Achillea millefolium 'Appleblossom' (Pink yarrow)
1 Dianthus knappii (Yellow dianthus)
1 Dianthus amurensis 'Siberian Blues' (Amur pink)
1 Cymbalaria muralis (Kenilworth ivy)
1 Cyrtomium falcatum (Japanese holly fern)
1 Iris 'What Again' (Dwarf bearded iris)
1 Nepeta x faasenii 'Blue Wonder' (Catmint)
1 Yucca filamentosa 'Ivory Tower' (Yucca)
16 Antirrhinum majus 'Rocket Mix' (Snapdragon)

As for flowers blooming in the garden, two more irises joined the show, as well as a few other things:

Yet another bearded iris

Iris sibirica cv.

Hybrid Scotch broom, perhaps Cytisus 'Lena'?

Oxeye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare)

The daisies are particularly abundant this year; I am going to have to thin them out quite a bit after they have flowered or they will completely take over the backyard. For now, though, they make a nice show.
