Beautiful Ian! Gothenburg Pink is so lovely. Our garden is getting more woodsy after 20 years so it is getting better for Trilliums.

Ironically 'White Beauty' is the one Erythronium hybrid that isn't a great success here - it just sort of persists but doesn't really increase. Pretty much all the others increase well.

That's a handsome grape hyacinth by the way. Which is it, do you know?

We "think" it is Muscari leucostomum, Tristan.  ::) :-\   On the other hand, it may be M. neglectum! It has quite broad, deeply channeled leaves and the pretty pale top-knots to the  flowers, with white mouths to the darker lower flowers.

Hi Ian, I know you grow vastly more Erythroniums than me, but I'm curious as to how you keep them flowering so late? I don't think a single one is flowering in my garden any more and quite a few are entering dormancy.

I'd say it might be a temperature thing but since the mercury hasn't really crossed 15C here this year and it's been pretty wet this doesn't seem plausible. Any thoughts?

Tristan I think you will find that our average and ground temperature are lower than you largely because we are so much further north so that will be a big factor. I am always amazed to see how far plants growing in gardens further south of us are ahead - we even detect that Dundee which is around 70 miles south can be a week ahead and Branklyn garden even more so.

Seedlings will also have different flowering times and so widen you flowering season.

Ian - That yellowish green Fritillaria affinis is quite lovely.  Does it come true from seed and what name shall I look for on the seedexs?  Or will it simply show as F. affinis (green-yellow form)?

John

I don't remember ever getting seed from it but it does increase well from rice grains - not much good to you I know.
There are two named yellow forms Fritillaria affinis that I know of 'Limelight' and 'Sunray' I suspect they are the same clone - our form is very similar if not identical and arose from seed we got many years ago from one of the exchanges  and we have it growing in several places around the garden.

Colourful trees and shrubs stand out but some flowers  have to be searched for - plus Bluebells are appealing. Click on the Bulb Log link.
