|Corydalis sempervirens is thriving in an area of my garden I consider "sunny."|
With a name like "rock harlequin," how can I say goodbye to this adorable, self-sown native? According to the USDA, it's endangered in Indiana. Corydalis sempivirens seems to have made itself comfy in a spot I created for the placement of a pot. It's a corner of the garden that cries out for color and which I covered with a found bag of aquarium rock and a leftover ceramic floor tile. In nature, this little charmer is either a biennial or annual that grows in rock crevices and/or poor soil in a woodland clearing.
|Spigelia marilandica (woodland pinkroot) is an easy keeper if it has a good location.|
|Hydrangea Let's Dance(c) 'Starlight' is one of the best rebloomers in my garden.|
|Echinacea Big Sky 'Sunrise'|
|Echinacea 'Solar Flare'|
Other keepers include those that have made their way upward so as not to take up as much horizontal space. It's taken awhile to get going, but Clematis 'Avant Garde' is a keeper for its color--a cheery raspberry red with a cute little tuft in the center.
By no means are these all of the plants I'll be hanging onto during the upcoming plant eradication. What we have here are shots of the plants that happen to be clamoring for my attention on Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. See more of what's looking its best here at May Dreams Gardens.
