It is not blooming yet and I can't find an older photo of it in bloom but I have a photo of the leaves now...

We are starting to get a good list...keep 'em coming!


I enjoyed picking out the other natives in your photo. Your Phlox divericata (spelling?) looks great--I'm guessing the hummers would visit it too...along with your columbine. Nice to see the sedum in bloom....mine is too. I almost mistook your bloodroot for wild ginger...until I saw the seed pod. ...and I'm guessing that is Iris christata in the foreground. Great collection.
