Another Ficus:


Danish botanist, Martin Vahl, named the plant Forsythia, after the Scottish horticulturist, William Forsyth. Controversy still remains, as to how to pronounce the name of the shrub.

These Fs are, as I have mentioned FANTASTIC. I will likely start G on Sunday.

Love those Flapjacks. JMorth, that is such an interesting specimen of this plant, if you can grow it I can I am positive, so I have to start hunting for that one. BTW, you sure you want to spend a Q on an F?? Ha ha. Somehow I think when we get to Q, there will be no shortage from you. Not sure how I know that.... :)

Hemnorth, thank you for posting the dwarf and the larger Fothergilla side by side, that really shows the difference. Some more Fs from me...

Still in the 'F' department, I've been working on an assortment of 86 photos of Ferns - picking out those to enter, and finding their latin names.







I also have a Gymnocarpus, but I'll save it for the 'G' Soup Pot.

Now for a hodge podge Soup mix. Some Ferns I'm still trying to identify:

Two out of the Kula Botanical Garden on Maui. Thumb of 2018-01-22/HemNorth/8302b3
Thumb of 2018-01-22/HemNorth/c45380 It might be a Sword Fern or Ladder Fern - maybe a Nephrolepsis species?
And possibly a Dryopteris, but Which one? Thumb of 2018-01-22/HemNorth/1147dc By the way, the Ferns are rubbing shoulders with another 'F', Hosta Frances Williams.

Oh yes, and there's a Hybrid Fern Leaf Peony that I have.

And then there's everybody's 'Fragrant', 'Favourite' White Peony with those lovely Raspberry Red 'Flecks', 'Festiva Maxima'.
