Goniolimon cuspidatum from Kyrgyzstan has a very interesting color spectrum...  in my case it is very small... therefore 👍

Thomas again a very interesting group. The Goniolimons seem to be a branch of statice's ( Limonium sps. )which are most commonly known as dried flowers. Does your species seem adequate for that purpose?. It would be of interest even here because there's quite a thriving market of dry flower cultivation. The branching of mature plants is very attractive and could have really great ornamental value in dry flower bouquets. As always my pursuit is trying to expand the use of wild-flowers, so that their conservation is assured. The plant list has 21 accepted Goniolimons to study... :)

Unfortunately, my garden is not suitable for such spectacular plants. So I have to confine myself to things like this, a carnation grown from seed once bought in France.

Those are lovely Mariette.  In your second photo, are the scarlet flowers further back a persicaria?

Thank You, Maggi, Oleg and Ashley!

Yes, on the left, there´s a lot of Persicaria amplexicaulis ´Firetail´, on the right, just below Hydrangea paniculata ´ Early Sensation´, there´s a taller growing selection of Sanguisorba officinalis.

The carnation was just a lucky dip grown from a mixture of otherwise common colours. It may be propagated by cuttings only, I´m afraid.

A very nice garden view, Mariette, and I like the pink.

Thank you Cohan, it is a nice Erigeron. And reliable here, as I said, and come to think of it slugs don't seem to go for it. That may well account for its reliability, it get's half a chance of surviving 'seedlinghood'.

The mountain aven is putting on a second show for the season, almost as full as the first one, the first bud appeared last week.

Our one teasel (Dipsacus probably fullonum) is blooming, to the joy of many bumblebees. You can see why it was used to raise the nap.

Our Staghorn sumac is full of flowers this year, and they opened this week. It seems to be preferred by honeybees, the entire bush 'hums' om a sunny day. The picture is of a male bush, not that I can tell by the flowers, but its 'lady-friend' ten meters (30 feet) away produces the signature red candles in autumn. We'll see how that goes this year, the female bush is not flowering yet.

Some views of my back garden highlighting the lilies. They may not be to a connoisseurs taste but I like them. Lilium ‘Pretty Woman’



Something has gone wrong with two of the photos. Don’t know what to do about it.

Monardella sp.  It comes up so late, I am convinced it died.  Fooled me again!

This is supposed to be Alstroemeria pallida.  But the flowers are only an inch across.
