I know you have seen them before, but they are so fleeting and yet welcome, Sanguinaria canadensis, S.canadensis multiplex and S.canadensis 'Armstrong's Pink' - thanks John and Ken ;D

Thanks Brian and Angie,

Brian, maybe we can swap when my 'star' gets a bit bigger (now it's only one year old and has only two flowers).

Angie, I would like some rain, please  ;) A lot of plants will start suffering if it stays as dry as the last month.

I'll gladly join that fan club :D  With such narrow white petals this bloodroot almost looks like Silene hookeri ssp. bolanderi:

Things growing or in bloom here today.  Note:  I used 2006 photos of Magnolia salicifolia as my current digital camera just doesn't capture white flowers well, but it is in full bloom now, 2-3 weeks earlier than normal. This unique magnolia has small narrow leaves.


1.  Jeffersonia dubia - on cloudy day (today)
2.  Jeffersonia dubia - on sunny day  (yesterday), sun brings out the beet red leaf color.
3.  Jeffersonia diphylla - plant on cloudy day
4.  Jeffersonia diphylla - plant in late afternoon sun
5.  Jeffersonia diphylla & Dicentra Cucullaria
6.  Pulmonaria rubra - on cloudy day
7.  Pulmonaria rubra - sunny break in late afternoon
8.  Magnolia salicifolia 'Kochanakee' - flowers have a sweet lemony perfume
9.  Magnolia stellata - unnamed pink grown from seed, sweet scented
10. Under Magnolia trees I grow stuff, like Trillium species.
    Two forms of Trillium decumbens just popped up the last couple of days.
    The one on the left is not a 4-leaf one, the rhizome split and it is now two
    shoots now and the leaves are slammed up against each other

Hi super pictures, I add some information about Sanguinaria Star, this was a plant given to me many years ago and was then called Sanguinaria Paint creek double, I exhibited this to a Joint Rock meeting and was told it could not be called a Double hence the name now Paint Creek Star or Star I add my pictures cheers Ian the Christie kind.

Yesterday we visiteted the Town of Maulbronn, famous for its monastery.
On the way we visited again the vineyard at a suburb of Stuttgart with the
big Aubrieta plants.
In the monastery was a big art market and a fountain, decorated with
Easter symbols.

An ACTUAL pink! For other pink forms I've seen, I needed to get out my rose-coloured spectacles. 8)

S.canadensis 'Armstrong's Pink' - thanks John and Ken ;D

Calm down now Brian.  It's just a pink.   ;)

You may have to borrow Lesley's rose-coloured spectacles in a day or two.  Keep us posted.

Wim - Star is quite a stunner!

Lovely flowers everyone! Not so much to offer here, just
Mukdenia rossii
Callianthemum anemonoides
Luit van Delft, right in the heart of the beautiful flowerbulb district, Noordwijkerhout, Holland.

Sadly Luit died on 14th October 2016 - happily we can still enjoy his posts to the Forum
