six on Saturday, 26 March 2022

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.

  1. Are violet too difficult to identify because there are so many of them? They seem to be everywhere in North America, but only a few are easily identifiable. There are even a few in our region, right near chaparral climates, but I suspect that some are feral.

    1. I think that is so–there are many, and they can be considered invasive weeds in some areas.. I find differences in plants rather hard to distinguish.

      1. Of the fifty species of Yucca, there are no two that will not hybridize freely if they get the chance. Tropical species hybridize freely with desert species. The individual species and their many varieties are already difficult to keep track of, so they hybrids complicate the situation further.
