Horticulture Update: Midsummer Blooms

We're fortunate to have many waves of blooms throughout the season. We've already enjoyed lilies of pink and yellow varieties, and almost 10 different varieties of daffodils. Midsummer brings its own distinct look to our planters and beds around the park. Can you find these three varieties below?   
Casablanca lilies are pure white, with tangerine-colored pollen. They can reach up to 6 feet tall.

Pink astilbe, also called Goatsbeard or False Spirea, are known to attract hummingbirds.  

Phlox paniculata (alba grandiflora) can grow up to 3 feet tall. Traditionally, it is a border plant in a garden.
