Or perhaps Arrgggh is more appropriate? All on account of the snow and frosty cold we are so unaccustomed to in Zone Brrr at this time of the year? Actually there IS a zone Brrrr. Its in Vanderhoof, if you want to check it out. Anyway, R is a RATHER DELICIOUS letter. Roses, Rhodos, Ranunculus, Ripsalidopsis. Need I say more? Or spell it correctly? Here are some Rs to start this roiling soupy floristic thang goin on.

Ribes noid, I am so embarrassed to say.

I think Hemnorth has already posted a photo of this Rudbeckia subtomentosa Henry Eilers, this is the parent plant I think, easily ten feet tall every year by the pond, and five feet in the first year post division. If you like tall go for Henry E. Just a warning I will combine letters after S, because lets face it this soup is almost ready to serve!

I believe the original Henry Eilers was discovered about 35 miles south of me.
I hadn't a clue that it could attain the size noted above...

Thanks for this link. I just assumed that this max height is typical, I have only grown it for about 6 years, and recently gave a clump to Hemnorth and then last year moved a piece down to an average full sun acidic soil site below and it got up to 5 feet. It would be of interest to me if the height it gets in the rich wet soil of the pool side, where I have a crack in the rock letting water out on a regular basis all summer is the reason for this height, and under average conditions its not so huge. I am always interested in phenotypic variation in plants.

A few more Rs....

Rothschildiana

Thumb of 2018-03-27/KatEnns/70a8d5

Red Oak leaf retention in spring, why decidous trees do this mystifies me, I mean I realize there is some advantage to protecting the bud scales and buds, but do they have to make a mess AFTER i have raked all that winter debris away in spring? Never mind, I love them anyway.

Another Rudie, just hirta, no big deal, but always easy when you need a shot of color somewhere. Anywhere. Please.

Redwing Butterfly Gladiolus. I may be breaking my own rule by posting this same variety twice, but this is a different photograph of it. So sue me.

Russian Almond, as a juvenile. Was crushed by snow this year, totally flat as a pancake so I will see how well it does.

Red Hot Poker. I see mine have survived winter, I have two, this one is one that died. I usually only post photos of the most recent year, (HINT).

I've been posting same plant under different names (common, scientific) and some go back to before 2009. I've tried to not use any same pictures though. Over 85%, maybe 95% are from the data base here.

Shall toss in a few now.



And of course some Rhododendrons.

And that's all for now. More on Monday, when I'm back from an Easter Sunday with family.
