Magnar, does this Olsynium have a strong scent?

Here are some pictures of what is flowering with me at the moment.

Michauxia campanuloides has come into maybe full splendor by now, and I am surprised the flowers hold so well. The first flower which opened on June 25 looked just as fine on July 1. There are many buds waiting to open, and hopefully I will get some seed.

The wild form of Schizanthus grahamii ( from SeedHunt ) has grown like cress in the wet cool weather we have been having over the past weeks, and I've had to top it several times to keep it back. The flowers are exquisite !

Salvia praeclara ( also from SeedHunt ) is another nice annual which I haven't grown before, and it does well here even if it hails from Bolivia.

Delphinium viridescens

Centaurea cyanoides

No, there is just a very weak scent from the flower.

That is impressive - how long did it take to grow, reading your web site I presume you sometimes grow them from seed.

Yes, I grew this from seeds several years ago, and as far as I can rememeber now, it took 5 years till I had the first flower

What a glorious lily Magnar! I'm looking forward to my seedlings growing so well but they'll need a few more years yet. Well worth the wait though :D

It is stunning Magnar and I am hoping that next year mine will flower.  They have the substance and seem to be flowering height but no buds this year.  :-\

Probably a question that betrays dimness on my part, on your web site you've got a huge database of seeds, are the germination times in days or weeks?

Yes I like that lily very much,, I prefer the Lilium species, not so much interested in all the named hybrids.  I also collect Fritillaria and Nomocharis.. and I'm so lucky to have no lily beetles up here  :)

David: The germination times are in days. It is said in the Norwegian text,  but I see it has fallen out of the English text when I rearranged the page.

I have been photographing some wildflowers today which are flowering in southeastern Sweden now.

Starting out with some orchids:

Epipactis atrorubens, which grows in calcareous areas, both on stony screes and in more moist locations,


Gymnadenia conopsea



and Dactylorhiza maculata ssp fuchsii

There were also some other nice species growing in the same area, and here are some pictures of Geranium sanguineum, where I have placed my thumb next to the flower in comparison.

There are also some pictures of Pyrola rotundifolia
