Today’s six are a simply gallery of native wildflowers and one small native shrub growing in the wooded part of the garden this week.
They are Alabama snow wreath (Neviusia alabamensis) in the large photo. Top right is false garlic, also known as crow poison (Nothoscordum bivalve). Below that is Philadelphia or daisy fleabane (Erigeron philadelphicus). From left to right along the bottom are Southern adder’s tongue (Ophioglossum vulgatum), two-leaf toothwart (Cardamine diphylla), and wild violets–no species identified, but possibly Viola sororia.
Wildflowers I highlighted last week (bluets, rue anemone, and trillium) are still blooming; in fact, due to a few good days of sun, they are doing quite well. The reason I went with another group of natives in a simple six in a box this week is not that nothing else is going on in the garden. Quite the opposite. I’ve got a few transplanting and pruning projects going. And they will be reported on in time. But, none of them is, nor am I, ready at the moment.
There are amazing garden things wonderfully reported on going on around the world, though. Just begin with The Propagator, enjoy his six, see the guidelines for sharing your six, and follow links in the comments to see a multitude of interesting updates from both hemispheres.
