Oddly my Ludisia discolor decided not to bloom this year, yet these cuttings (rooting in a vase) have sent up a couple of bloomspikes now, crazy right? Those fading Ranunculus are store bought and the things that look like cotton balls? Actually puffy Clematis tibetana var. vernayi seedheads.
Staying indoors for another photo, the Cybister Amaryllis Evergreen bulb I received from John Scheepers is blooming and it's gorgeous.
Edgeworthia chrysantha 'Nanjing Gold' tried so hard to get a few flowers open for Bloomday, but just couldn't do it.
Ditto for E. chrysantha ‘Akebono’ (orange blooming).
Grevillea miqueliana too. So close!
This Hellebore (Helleborus x hybridus 'Jade Tiger') is the only Hellebore open yet.
There are more on the way though, H. argutifolius.
H. NOID, black blooming (I have another black flowering plant, H. 'Black Diamond', but it's so far behind the others I couldn't get a decent photo of even the bud).
H. x ballardiae Pink Frost
H. 'Ice 'n Roses'
H. x 'Golden Sunrise'
Okay ya, I guess this is really more of an "anticipation of blooms" post isn't it? Jasminum nudiflorum...
Eriobotrya japonica, aka the Loquat.
Stachyurus salicifolius, almost.
Mahonia x media 'Charity'
Finally, the amazing Hamamelis x intermedia 'Rochester'...
Amazing because of the scent, wow!
A branch was cut (those pesky brown leaves, that should have fallen away, removed) and brought indoors to enjoy. Sometimes a simple vase is all you need...
