The incessant rain has finally stopped, we've had an entire week without rain, the sun is out, and things are finally revving up.
Here's my Carduncellus pinnatus:
Late April blooms
Just gorgeous ZuZu! Seeing everyones soldanella, dodecathon, hepaticas, anemonella and primula has got me convinced that I need to expand and revamp my north facing bed so I can try some of these. Or at least finish up a trough or two. How long has the Soldanella been in bloom?
I love that Carduncellus. That big lavender pom pom of a bloom is amazing.
Another ungypsophilalike gypsophila. But very aptly named, and very nice. And I will keep a watch out for Cardancellus pinnatus seed too.
Zuzu - those plants are glorious! You've grown them all beautifully.
Its soooo exciting to see such exotic beauties again on this forum.
Hi, Tammy. Isn't it great? Spring is back and so is daylight saving time. We can finally stay outside as long as we want. This last week has been so productive. I love this time of year.
Yes spring is a joy! Some very interesting and beautiful plants there Zuzu, many of which I've not seen before. I like the Carduncellus and that lovely iris, and that double erodium... And who says double primulas are nothing special - they are wonderful :)
Post away, Tammy. The name of the thread's "Late April Blooms." It's anyone's thread for another day.
Where's Todd? He'd be able to identify your maybe-Androsace in a minute. It's very cute. Lovely foliage.
Tam, your Androsace is not an Androsace. Its a mustard of some sort...perhaps a Draba but it doesn't look like any Drabas I've ever grown (mind you there are MANY types of Draba!).
Tammy I'll have to go and check as this is the first year mine have bloomed but that picture looks similar to the Arabis androsace that are just starting to bloom here in my gardens. Great Primula!
I think you are right with that ID...Arabis androsace seems to fit this plant.
I love Primula kisoana, Tammy. Mine are still nothing but leaves. I hope they bloom soon.
Thank you Ally_UT & Todd! I could not find any label that came close to matching.
I'll put one in tomorrow.
Its just glorious here these days! I was too busy having fun in the dirt to take pictures
but maybe tomorrow morning. Gentiana Verna, several lewisias & Mount Atlas Daisy
are peaking now. (Can't think of the latin name of the latter right now. I'll have to look
it up before I post the pic's).
