Flowers in My Garden

This weekend the weather was spectacular! All the sunshine and warmth brought many awaiting buds into bloom. Here are some of the lovely plants in my garden.

Hepatica americana

Pulsatilla vulgaris

Erythronium 'Pagoda'

This is a hybrid of E. revolutum and E. tuolumnense. I planted these bulbs two falls ago and they have heartily multiplied!

Here is my Anenomonella thalictriodes 'Llyod's Big Bloomer'
As it emerges it has such lovely burgundy purple new leaves and the flower starts pink, turning to white later.

Linum perenne 'Nanum Sapphire'
What a blue!

The new limey green leaves of Physocarpus opulifolius 'Nugget'

I inherited this iris from a friend of mine and its new purple leaves are striking. It really is that purple!

Mukdenia rossii 'Karasuba' in full flower

Not sure how many times I need to post about this amazing plant, but here it is again, finally in flower here in Vermont.


  1. Woah! You've got a nice collection! These flowers are unique in every way… Take Anenomonella thalictriodes, for example. Their way of blooming is unique, for the flower grows pink then white later on. How many types of flowers do you have all in all?

  2. Hi Jamie,
    Thank you for your nice comment! I am glad you also love Anemonella, what a plant! I have no idea how many type of flowers I have, many hundreds is my guess. It is a rather small garden, but packed to the brim.. Thanks again!
