A photo thread, with a touch more specificity than general gallery threads.. this is for late Spring/early Summer..  You are welcome to join in.  Even if it's something just showing above ground, doesn't have to be in flower..

I have loads of this and that, so let's get going..

Rhodanthemum 'Marrakech'..  flowers Mar-May.. evergreen.. soft foliage, like Artemisia..

Pulmonaria 'Opal'.. these are just going over..

Brunnera 'Jack Frost' / Tulip 'Lady Jane'.. the tulips are just going over too..

Rhodanthemum 'Tangiers' .. flowers all year... Helianthemum 'Supreme'..

Gaura 'Pink Dwarf'.. I love this foliage colour.. these develop into quite good size shrubby plants by midsummer..

Geranium sanguineum 'Matt Frei'.. first flowers..


...more to follow..

    ..windy and very dry in East Anglia.. beginning to look like a drought situation..

    I'm a bit concerned about this plant that I've been nuturing, if anyone knows what it is, Celandine-y??  I feel I should get rid of it..

    I like the look of your Geranium Matt Frei @Marlorena.  Does it flower from June to August as claimed by some suppliers?  I'm looking for a long flowering geranium to provide low ground cover in an east facing border that gets early morning sun for up to three hours and is then in light shade for the rest of the day.  Would these conditions be suitable do you think?

    @Plantminded
    heya... Yes that's not a problem, mine are not in full sun and shaded somewhat under a rose..

    My plants flower longer than stated there, I would say May-November actually, April this season.
    Here's photo evidence of it late flowering.. just as the foliage starts to turn.. I think it's at its best May to Aug though..

    @GardenerSuze
    ..oh thanks, yes you're right it does, I hadn't thought of that.. I used to grow Geum borisii, so I wonder if it's seeded..  I hope it is, I don't want to pull it up for no good reason..  I'll wait until it flowers, thanks so much..
