|Camassias and tulips|
|Conifer (I don't know what kind, I can't grow them!)|
|I have never ever ever seen this poppy in the Houston area.|
|I can't remember what this delightful little tree is.|
|Weigela, one of the many cultivars in that genus which I can't grow!|
|Japanese Painted Fern. I've tried. Believe me, I've tried. OVER & OVER & OVER.|
|Lupine. Definitely not texensis.|
|Luscious apricot and pink Peony|
|Weigela, ANOTHER one of the many cultivars in that genus which I can't grow!|
|Pink and white Double Clematis, misidentified as Columbine. I still think|
it's too delicate by far for Katy. Maybe I should try it & see!
|Bath's Pink Dianthus with The Head Gardener ... they rot here (the Dianthus, |
not the HG ... although ...)
|OK, this one I'm not so sure we can't grow: it's not that different from |
the yellow Phlomis.
|The most incredible array of Bearded Iris I've ever seen|
|Angelica, I think gigas?|
|Amorphophallus titanum ... one which I am definitely glad I can't grow!|
Thanks to Carol of May Dreams Gardens, our Bloom day progenitor!
Your golden tree is a Laburnum. (Golden Raintree) Not sure of the species...probably Laburnum anagyroides.
I have to say, though - I succumbed and brought home a little pot of asarum. Dammit, sometimes ya just gotta push the envelope (again!)
Mimi, thanks for the ID on the Viburnum. I changed the caption to reflect that.
The yellow tree appears to be a golden rain tree---which you *don't* want to grow as it is an invasive. It does grow in Houston, though.
I've grown that poppy before, but you have to reseed it. I grow Lauren's grape poppy yearly. They work.
Alliums...they grow here too.
Instead of those beautiful rhodie's we can grow our awesome native azaleas!
There are lots of lupines that we can grow, too. Not just texensis.
I grow columbines really well, too. Native ones and a few hybrids. They die back a bit in the winter, but they do really well for me.
Dianthus----sometimes they rot, but most of the time they are the ones lasting all seasons!
Amorpha....they grow here, too but you have to dig them up in the winter or they will rot. We grew them and bloomed them in z10A in FL, but even there still dug them up for dormancy.
