Gabriela could you help me in identifying the pink flowers behind the Astragalus in your first picture?. I tried to improve the focus but was unable to. Thanks in advance.

It is Armeria juniperifolia Arturo.

Thanks Gabriela.  :)   8)

We have a number of different Cirsium species that are native to California. I have tried a few and hope to try others in the future. It all takes time, but I am certainly enjoying our current batch of thistles.

A lot of the colour in my garden is from self sown seedlings.  I am very bad at removing and thinning them out.  Making a good show just now are a number of verbascums.  I should not have left so many on the paths.  Ground cover fabric is no barrier to them getting their roots down.  The biggest one is in a raised bed.  I think the parentage is the yellow Verbascum epixanthinum and the daddy is a purple Verbascum phoeniceum.  They are all slightly different shades of pink and very robust.  The ones which flowered last year all seemed sterile.

Those are  very handsome volunteers, Roma.    Gotta  love a  volunteer, even if we  might  wish they chose  other spots  to grow!

Cypripedium parviflorum var. pubescens forma planipetalum is in flower.  Seems to be back on its feet again after a traumatic and unappreciated division several years ago, it's been around in the garden for 25 or more years.After several warm days it's due to cool off again.  At least the rhodos will last.

Tulipa sprengeri is flowering right now. These were sown in 2014 from seed ex seeds, and they are so pretty!
I read somewhere that it dislikes transplanting, and I'm wondering if I dare move them when they go dormant to a better place (I'm thinking they might look fabulous with Corydalis 'Korn's Purple' which is also flowering now).
Or maybe it is better to collect seeds from it and sow them which I will do anyway. :)

Are Tulipa roots annual?  I think so.  If this is the case, I can't see how moving a dormant bulb would be so stressful.

Some things at my place:
Allium ovalifolium


Vella spinosa


Talinum okanogense


Erigeon pinnatisectus from May 30


I keep the calyces on all summer

Dracocephalum ryuschianum


Scutellaria alpina


Melica ciliata still in bud, flanked by Pontechium maculatum. The one on the right might be a dwarf form.  We will see how it grows on.


In the lawn - Pontechium maculatum and Penstemon grandiflorus


Very excited about this tiny Allium sp.  From seed from Panayoti Kelaidis, first time to bloom.

Lots of colors Roma, even through the rain the garden looks beautiful. I must start growing T. sprengeri.

And Hesperostipa spartea from Minnesota native seed.  Not quite fully grown.

Hesperostipa spartea is a very interesting grass, present here in some locations.

Here's a native from my garden - Sisyrinchium mucronatum basking in the sun; few rainy days are following again.

They look gorgeous, not often seen in gardens.
