I love meeting new plants, strange fellows that seem completely improbable. This morning we spotted these Japanese Cobra lily – Arisaema sikokianum- zone 4-9.
The cyclamen in the background gives you an idea of scale, each plant had a singular flower. I will keep an eye on these ladies…
A favorite shrub year after year is this Pearlbush – Exochorda x macrantha “the bride”- zone 4 to 7. I was mistaken for a long while thinking of this marvel as a pea shrub, another favorite of mine. I only wish pea shrubs bloomed like this!
That about wraps it up for today, the work we have been doing in our own yard is so enormous that I would not even know how to start posting about it! I must though…documenting the progress of a garden is not wasting digital ink.
