Nice NEWisc! I love them all. That clematis is awesome. Where did you find them, in the wild or are you growing them? turttle, what's a curlyhead???

As of today we have Delphinium exaltatum blooming, it's rather unassuming compared to the garden variety Delphiniums but still lovely. It's blooming earlier and paler than it's supposed to, maybe it's just because it was planting this spring.

One lone Mondarda didyma bloom this morning.

I am so happy for you! I'd love to have the local ecotype of more and more natives just show up on our property. We've had a few, but too few and far between.

I have always wanted to grow A. variegate since I saw a painting of it (I don't think they had photos) in a two volume wildflower reference book at a local library when I was in my late teens or early twenties.

Now those look like rather rare wildflowers--at least they are not common around my neck of the woods.

I love the woodland delphinium...I used to see it at one park out in Western PA. I'd love to grow it here some day.

Many years later--just last year, I spotted one or two on the side of a road out this way. It is so much smaller than it appears in photos, but still lovely and one I want. I planned to go back to collect seeds, but never got around to it.

They are all in our yard. I grew them from seed several years ago. The only one that is locally native is the puccoon.

pawprint Just another unidentified wildflower...or two

I don't know the name, but it just started blooming, and I only have a few samples in my yard to photograph. But I'll be marking this one for the seed later this year, because it is only 2' tall and I think beautiful. I includes 3 pixs so perhaps some ID help could be made. This pix is a funny photoshop so I could get close, and show the 'whole plant'. What's Blooming Now 2013-early-june2013-016.jpg



Another view of the same plantWhat's Blooming Now 2013-early-june2013-018.jpg
