Karl Forester and Festiva Maxima - LOTS of blooms this year!

Hansa and what's supposed to be Shirley Temple but looks more like Festiva Maxima. :(

Hawkeye Belle:

Martin Frobisher:

Marie Bugnet:

Henry Kelsey:

Another iris that might be Moon Silk:

Yellow lupines:

Persicaria:

The wild rose by our deck. Every few years, it's just spectacular:

Some heuchera, malva and bleeding hearts:

Apologies for the size of a couple of these, but TinyPic wasn't cooperating today!

Erythronium - i've never seen that before, but it sure is nice! THIS tempts me! Is it easy to grow from seed?

I do need a Bowl of Beauty peony! That is gorgeous!

This is the best year for my erythronium. I have tried to find out which ones they are and havent found a name for them. They were given to me from a friend who go them from a friend etc. They are bulbs like a lily bulb and next month I could dig some up and send to you. I have 2 large patches of them.

Oh, don't worry about it, Jean - the postage would be way too much. I'll see if i can find some seeds next winter. Thanks, though!

Oh such beautiful pictures!! Marcia, I love your pic of Hawkeye Belle! How's she doing for you? That's one of the roses I really miss not having here.:(

Savona, your peonies are amazing! Love the one of Bowl of Beauty.

That's great Marcia! Do you cover it at all for winter? Any die back? I think I remember mine always dieing way back every year and I'd panic that she was dead, but she eventually came up. I started out with two, but one didn't make it through the first winter.:(

I do cover it - the old cardboard box filled with leaves thing. :) She does suffer some dieback but rebounds really well. I put a picture in this week's thread.
