First brugmansia bloom of the spring!
Clematis "Nelly Moser"
Some magenta clematis that looks great with the 'Joseph's Coat' rose through which it's growing.
Clematis 'Empress Josephine'
My favorite tulip this year is this impulse buy at our local everything store. Don't even remember the name, they were on sale and I thought they might not make it. Pink and orange on the outside.
Bright red interior.
Tree peony a bit past it's prime. Finally bloomed after many years in my garden when I dug it up and planted it much deeper as Cisco Morris suggested!
Yes, it's this bright and vulgar but I got it for the fragrance which is equally and wonderfully powerful.
Rose 'Zephirine Drouhin'
Some noid thing which is probably the rootstock of something that died but I kind of like the smokey color.
I'll remember the name of this one one of these days.
This one too.
First bud of 'Westerland'
Cecile Brunner. The corner of the garden dominated by this rampant climber is heavy with it's sweet scent reminiscent of my mother's rose perfume.
Our native dicentra, a favorite of hummingbirds is trying to take over my entire garden.
That crazy pelargonium that bloomed all winter in the greenhouse has moved outside. It's kind of leggy and woody now. Should I cut it back and root the cuttings now or wait until fall?
Allium are starting.
A neighbor dug this rhododendron out of his yard years ago and gave it to me.
Begonia 'Gene Daniels'
Inherited Camellia japonica that puts out flowers from early spring through summer instead of putting on a dramatic massive show for a single month.
Billardiera longiflora is the vine that has the plump purple fruits later in the year.
Hardy evergreen Matthiola (stock.) The white form seemed to share it's fragrance more freely.
Fremontodendron and rhododendron, another gift from the same neighbor.
Aesculus pavia - Red Buckeye
Sambucus 'Black Lace'
Hesperis matronalis - Dame's Rocket
Salvia 'Hot Lips'
Looks like a heather but it's a solanum. Can't remember the name though.
Variegated Ceanothus is covered with fragrant blooms this year!
First blooms of the season on Meconopsis 'Lingholm'
Pernettya mucronata rubra
Weigela something or other with golden foliage and ruby blooms.
"I'm called little buttercup, sweet little Ranunculus constantinopolitanus 'Plenus'. Doesn't really fit the Gilbert and Sullivan score...
Sarracenia leucophylla 'Tarnok' by Courting Frogs had to come home with me from Jungle Fever. It's got a really interesting flower, yes?
What good is having a greenhouse if one can't have a bougainvillea kicking around?
Last of the Hippeastrum, (Amaryllis) all planted at Christmas time, to bloom.
Abutilon hybrid 'Voodoo'
Calycanthus 'Hartlage Wine'
