Dave, or should I say Slug Killer?
Your Deinanthe is great. Is this the species or it is some named clone?
I wish I had your luck with L fargesii. Mine never come up or die.

Hi Gote

It is a species Deinanthe caerulea. Flowers don't last very long unfortunately.

Regards

Dave

Cassia marilandica is a wonderful huge North American perennial with a shrub-like presence. Clean foliage and beautiful flowers.

And it's nice when any woody species blooms at this time of the year- Sorbaria kirilowii is so much nicer than the overused S. sorbifolia. Taller, later-blooming, large, pyramidal flower racemes and lovely foliage.

A few of my favorite woodland plants are starting into bloom now; first the pretty Kirengeshoma palmata and of course the very, very, very elegant Anemonopsis macrophylla--on my list of favorite 5 woodland plants.

The wonderful eastern North American Aconitum uncinatum--a very long blooming climber/scrambler.

so many species....so little time

This the first time I note a flower with two colors pollen. On two different Commelina dianthifolia flowers.
Is it usual?

Lovely clematis, Bernard. I don't know about the pollen on the Commelina... but when it flowers her I will have a real good look!

Maggi, this codonopsis has the same reqirements as C.lanceolata. But unlike C.tubularis I post a ricture of it doesn't unfortunately selfseed for me. I hope to harvest some seed this year. Any interest?
This is C.tubularis which germinates everywhere in the garden
