I have been amazed this summer at all the flowers that are blooming around St. George. It seems that more things are blooming than ever before, and there is just lots of color everywhere you look.
People will plant these two bushes, the red one above and the white one below, right next to each other on the edge of their property, like we do lilacs in Idaho. They get rather big and it looks cool to have the colors alternating.
This plant below is my favorite. It ususally only has one spear shooting out of it, but this one has five.
The Sego Lily is the Utah flower. They have the thinnest stem holding up a lone blossom, and usually several inches or feet are between each flower. Last year the whole hillside above out house was covered with these short little flowers (probably due to the fact that it rained nearly the entire month of May.) It was beautiful.
