I have quite a few PNW natives flowering.
|Dichelostemma ida-maia grows from a bulb.
|There's a pinkish-lavender one too.
|Brodiaea also grows from a bulb.
|Castilleja/Indian Paintbrush is thriving this year, has lots of buds.
|Allium cernuum/Nodding onion is not actually open yet, but I love the transparency of the flower bud.
|Our native Physocarpus capitatus flowers are so pretty!
|Trillium luteum (native to eastern North America) is still flowering way in the back in the shade.
And, in the realm of the usual:
|Peony (sorry, no tag)
|Dianthus, grown from seed winter sown three years ago, comes in such a wide variety of shapes and shades.
|Geranium 'Vision Pink' was also winter sown three years ago, and is a favorite.
|One of my beds is fronted by a swath of it.
|Geranium 'Ballerina' purchased, not sown, is another favorite.
|I just love the dark veins on the flowers.
|There are only two flowers open so far on the rose campion, but there are plenty of buds!
|This yellow Lupine is one of the few Lupines left in my garden, I pulled a bunch out last year because they were so infested with aphids.
In the realm of the unusual: Big foliage, big flowers
|Gunnera flowers are pretty strange!
|Astilboides tabularis is flowering next to Persicaria 'Red Dragon', but the plant itself is still quite small.
|Rodgersia is flowering for the first time this year. I'm really happy with my clump!
|'Jade Frost' Eryngium is flowering now, with subtle hints of blue in the flowers.
|It's one of three types of Eryngium in the new gravel garden.
There is plenty more flowering, at this time of year I could keep going forever. But I think that's enough for now.
