Time is really the only capital that any human being has, and the only thing he can’t afford to lose. ~ Thomas Edison
Lychnis coronaria or Silene coronaria (dang botonists!) ~ rose champion | Acer ~ Maple
Lathyrus latifolius ~ Sweet pea vine
Dracunculus vulgaris ~ Dragon Flower, Dragon Arum, Voodoo Lily, Black Lily | Not sure either ~ Batting 1,000.
The voodoo lily was in Wisconsin, a zone 4 area. I was shocked to read that this crazy, cool plant is hardy to zone 5B! I’m 5A… a whole letter higher in zone 😉 This guy may survive in a well protected, well mulched, shady spot in my garden. I’m so looking for some of these. You can also dig these croms in fall and over-winter them in the garage.
Potentilla fruticosa or Dasiphora fruticosa ~ Shrubby cinquefoil or whatever the botanists are calling it today.
Clematis growing up a beautiful trellis.
Centaurea macrocephala ~ Globe centaurea | Huh…
Lupinus ~Lupine | Lysimachia punctata ~ Yellow loosestrife
Nice variety =-)
