Friday 29April's flowering


By siris


A cold dull day

Erigeron karvinskianus

Dwarf Bearded Iris Jazzamatazz now fully open

Intermediate Bearded Iris Golden Muffin

Another in the Iris family, Diplarhena

Polygonatum x hybridum, the clump in the front, shaded by the Camellia shrub, with self sown Cerinthe and Glaucium flavum, Sea Poppy.

Also in the front garden, 2 forms of Dicentra formosa, no, these have not changed to Lampnocapnos, only the spectablis Bleeding Hearts.

I also have the Yellow climbing D. scandens whose name has now changed to Dactylicapnos but that flowers much later.
Confused? so I’ll leave you with a cheery Doronicum Little Leo.

Siris, you say your garden isn't large, but you still manage to place a huge number of interesting plants! Love the Iris 'Golden Muffin', it's an unusual colour. We've been away for a few days and the borders seem to have disappeared under a swathe of green - hope I can remember where everything is planted!

I think I've managed a continuation of flowering throughout the year, although like you Anget, a sudden spurt of green foliage recently, needs be to nourish the flowers.

You’ve certainly a lot of interest in your garden, Sue. You given me some ideas from your scree garden and your shady areas too!
The last pic is pretty.

You always have the most amazing Iris's Siris... Enjoyed seeing all the beauties in your garden....Sadly both daughter and I have lost our Dorinicums, definitely going to replace them as they are a firm fav for both of us....

I would not say this Doronicum is thriving, its rather swamped by a spreading Thyme. Only the one flower each year on a pathetic plant. Must give it some tlc.
