Woodland Plants

The weather has been amazing and it is kicking everything into high gear. On Sunday afternoon a group of us went down into a patch of Dixter's woods and saw mass plantings of the native Anemone nemerosa with scatterings of early bluebells (hyacinthiodes non-scripta).

A carpet of anemone in the woods

Fritillaria meleagris in a small meadow behind the topiary garden

Erythronium dens-canis in the same meadow

Scilla bithynica with Arum italicum as seen in the Barn Garden


  1. It's so amazing to see these all naturalized so wonderfully. I'm always amazed by those Fritillaria hardly seems possible for such a pattern to be natural...just astounding!

  2. Wonderful combination in Scilla bithynica and Arum italicum. Love the anemone wood; hard to believe that they are blooming here in PA also... in March!

    Looking forward to reading more this week~
