What's Blooming in Mid May in Zone 7?

These are stunning with their mix of fuschia pink and yellow and purple. In the background is Nepeta Walker's Low in its third successful year as a border.
A lavender iris in one of the front beds was a gift from Nelson Myers, retired physician. Nelson expresses his many talents through stained glass and as a local daylily breeder.

Lychnis or Rose Campion is a local favorite that loves poor soil and does best planted under or near trees that steal excess water and nutrients.
What's blooming where you are?
