I’ve been reading Feed and it is almost Easter, thus I have resurrection on my mind. I figured now is as good a time as any to go through the list and see what made it through the winter.
Let us begin in the backyard. So far, I have confirmed sightings of:
Gaura siskiyou pink (lindheimeri)
pink fountain lindheimeri walgaupf
baptisia australis (false blue indigo)
geranium cantabrigiense biokovo
penstemon ‘prairie twilight’ / beard tongue
peony, Lactiflora ‘pillow talk’
hardy hydrangea (little lime) (hydrangea paniculata ‘jane”)
I have not yet seen the Ballerina Red Armeria (Armeria pseudarmeria ‘ballerina red’), the Bees Ruby Armeria (arenaria ‘bees’ ruby) or the Cotton Tail Thrift. I really like them so I hope they spout soon.
And now for the front yard. Here it is from the left and the right.
All of the hostas seem to have returned
Dicentra, Luxuriant, Cutleaf Bleeding Heart
I almost thought the Toad Lillies (Sinonome and Samurai) we’re weeds.
Both azaleas are hanging on but I’m not sure for how much longer.
Sedum, Autumn Joy
I don’t think the guara lindheimeri siskiyou pink out in front made it.
On the other side of the front steps, we have:
euphorbia (amygdaloides var. robbiae)
columbine red (aquilegia)
And two of these things my neighbor gave me. Nandina — thanks, Maggie!
A few of the columbine plants and the speedwell didn’t make it.
