The "Bourbon" clematis had all of one bloom on it last year...and now look at it. RAWK. I think I need at least one more clematis to climb on this fence.
Peonies of awesomeness...

And ZOMG the crambe cordifolia decided to bloom this year! With exquisite timing, too, right after the spirea was done. Need to prune the overhanging tree branch back a bit so nothing gets in its way.
I cannot for the life of me remember wtf this is. It's from the plant sale a couple years ago, and other than the fact that it's too tall for this spot when in bloom, that's all I know.
Aaaaaaand roses, or at least a sample thereof. All my Galetta purchases are blooming like mad. I'll have to ask after the slow-release fertilizer the guy said they'd been treated with.
Morden Blush, quite breathtakingly gorgeous:
Prairie Joy, covered in blooms and buds:
