Spring Gardens

The Hayward's garden in Putney, Vermont. The following flowers are seen here.

This is the incredible double bloodroot.
Sanguinaria canadensis forma multiplex

Uvularia graniflora

This is a genus of five species native to North America. The one usually seen in the woods in Vermont is Uvularia sessilifolia which has smaller and paler flowers.

Trout Lily (Erythronium americanum)

This is the native trout lily easily spotted in the woods in Vermont. Gordon and Mary did not even plant it in their spring garden, it just appeared many years ago and continues to flourish. This is my fourth spring working in their garden and this is by far the display I have seen.
