|This was an amazing place to visit. The Hellebore were in full bloom in the gardens, along with many other early spring blooming plants. |
Cardiocrinum giganteum, thank you Julia for the name of this plant. Now to see if I can track one down.
Thank you Lori for the ID on this plant. Rumex sanguineus
Narcissus cyclamineus, I really need to find some of these to grow with the sempervivum.

Your pictures are wonderful. I have always wanted to visit when those are in full bloom. That Trillium is wonderful!!!! That area is so much further along than here. My trillium are just pocking there heads up. Thanks for the pictures.

| Lynn for presenting photos of your jaunt thru the Spring growth of NorthwestGardens.|
My favorite is the first photo for its colors and composition. I have the plant pictured in the 3rd photo and also don't know the name of the plant. I purchased it solely for its interesting foliage but the leaves can get awfully long and cause the stems to sag. May have to try and find out the name.

|@Patty: I paid $5.99 for mine (4"pot)...|

|Yeah, a weed . But it looks like the red-veined form is sold as an ornamental. I have to admit it does look purty.|
Here is some information:

|Cool pics |
Love those Helleborus, the nice big trough... all!
Wondering what that plant is in the pic right under the yellow Narcissus.
I like the look, and it seems to be almost blooming.

|Calin, that is the first time I had seen that plant in person, so I didn't know what it was either. Turns out to be Fritillaria persica. The leaves are amazing, then these dramatic dark blooms. |

|I knew it ! |
I am just growing it from seeds... this is the second spring. Small, small leaves, for now.

|Oh Calin, I can't wait to see it. Can you get us a photo in it's baby form?|

|Oh well... I can do better!|

|Oh Calin, that is wonderful. How long did it take them to germinate?|
Mar 17, 2014 9:35 AM CST
|Yes, do tell. I saved seed from my Cardiocrinum giganteum but so far no sprouts. I have a bag full and would really like to grow them on. |

|Way to go Calin! |

|I really wouldn't know for sure. Fritillaria really not that long. I only keep records (if any) of the sowing date, but then I never mention germination or anything else. |
Cardiocrinum took really long. Probably from summer till next spring. This is their second spring. And still just one leaf.
I'm at work now (I do all my forum-ing at work... more free time - LOL).
At home I seem to get distracted.
IF I find more info, I'll let you know.
