Does Sanguinaria drops its petals very quickly in the wild? Mine are just about to open which I will miss.

Not really flowering now but who lives in a house like this?

The flowers on the Sanguinaria Hurstboro & Tenessee forms are fantasic. First time I have seen photos of differing types of the single form. Have just germinated the single form from Gardens North seed.  Look forward to the flowering time.  Does anyone know how long from germinatime to flowering?

 Diane, I let the seed fall naturally and I get better germination that way. I'll check today if this one has germinated anywhere.

 Mark S., Yes, in the wild they drop as quickly as in the garden. The Hurtsburo form has been in flower for a week now! Even surviving the wind.

 Mark Mc., I need the J. dubia from Darrell! That would be a fine addition to the garden.

 Sanguinaria does not like to be planted deeply and in the many places I have seen it in the wild it is always in well drained areas higher on the slopes. In Kansas where I found a population that was very happy and healthy it was growing in leaf mold between large limestone rocks.

 I am pleased that Easter is over we went with our Grandchildren to roll eggs and the hailstones were bouncing from car roofs it was coooold.  A few flowers that escaped the storm with more to come,  cheers Ian the Christie kind.

The snow here has nearly melted and the flowers are trying to catch up with the rest of Europe.
Here is Pulsatilla slavica ready to flower

I read about Kristl Walek's excursions in Nova Scotia earlier today, and it was a great pleasure to see her beautiful pictures of interesting plants and natural formations. I was especially thrilled over the nice stands of Symplocarpus foetidus ( skunk cabbage ), as I grow this species myself here in Sweden ( not as well as in wild populations though, which is often the case ). Here in Sweden winter has been very long and cold ( -32 C where I garden in Värmland ) and spring has yet to start for a big part of the country. This past Good Friday I visited the garden in Värmland, and removed the winter protection. I had to use a shovel to get the snow off the plastic sheets before I could lift them. It was still too early to make an evaluation of losses and gains, but one plant which had its mind set on flowering was Symplocarpus foetidus. It is fascinating how the spathe produces heat which actually melts away the snow around it, which is obvious in this picture. I even spotted a small fly, which probably seeked shelter in the warmer spathe but maybe also was attracted by the foetid smell. Even the seedlings I have in pots are coming up with their leaves at this time when the snow is still remaining at most sites. It's a pleasure to see all the pictures of beautiful plants flowering in other parts of the world at this forum.
