Gifts

I am working at the new seeds collections and…relax, no seeds pictures :) I only want to show two plants that were gifted to me and are looking good.

Corydalis ‘Kingfisher’, which was planted in the fall; one of the few blue Corydalis cv. available here (a cross between C. flexuosa x cachmeriana).  The violet shades on the buds are a great bonus.

And, still in the pot, a baby Astilboides tabularis with its umbrella leaf. Yes, it is a baby – don’t get fooled, it will get big!

Thank you!

      It is, but so are all the others! I always envy British gardeners for their choice of plants! Good envy…

      Sorry Tina, they (there are other blues very similar), don’t take well to warmer climates. Even here, in case of a dry summer, they need quite a bit of extra watering to look well.
