[ Prairie Nymph (Herbertia lahue) | Posted on April 5, 2015 ]

Blue/purple bloom with darker purple and with white splotches at base of petals. Blooms for 2 weeks, with individual flowers lasting only a day, opening in the morning and closing in late afternoon.

[ White Lace Flower (Orlaya grandiflora) | Posted on February 3, 2015 ]

I have had these for several years now and they self-sow every year. They can get invasive, but they are easily pulled up. The white lacecap blooms are lovely and are the first to bloom here. They have ferny green leaves, which look great against the white blooms. Wonderful addition to cottage gardens and bouquets.

Self-sowed freely and grew through our mild winters, resulting in large clumps.

[ Flame Lily (Gloriosa) | Posted on May 8, 2013 ]

The colors are so intense; coming back every year. Very easy to grow!

Very early blooming; one of the first to bloom here

Lovely blue blooms and so unique. This was grown from a rooted cutting (May, 2012); first blooms this spring April 2013.

Bought this in the fall; the bloom color is so pretty.

[ Walking Iris (Neomarica gracilis) | Posted on April 16, 2013 ]

The blue and brown against the white is so lovely.

[ Florist Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe blossfeldiana) | Posted on April 2, 2013 ]

These are so hardy; lovely red with dark leaves that stand out in the garden.

[ Scarlet Pimpernel (Lysimachia arvensis) | Posted on March 31, 2013 ]

They self-sow every year; make a good ground cover.

Very nice soft fragrance.
