Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day April 2012

Aquilegia - Columbine



Dianthus - Sweet William


Rosa Roxburghii - Burr rose, so named because of the fierce looking bud,
but when it opens.....

... a delicate pink beauty!

Snowball Viburnum

This came from a packet of seeds 'Butterfly Mix'
It is not very tall, and the leaves are long and narrow.
Does anyone know what it is?

Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

  1. They are beautiful, i love them. My friend from the US sent me seeds of some of these like columbine, clematis, dianthus ect total of 14 seed kinds. However, only 5 of them germinated and grow. Now rudbekia already flowered. At least i learned which ones can adapt our hot temperatures!

  2. Beautiful photographs, Lea. I haven't seen Snowball Viburnum before, I'm now thinking we need one for our garden! I do like clematis, I have a few of these.

  3. You have a beautiful assortment of flowers.

  4. What gorgeous photos. I have some of these same flowers but they won't be blooming for a while yet. Thanks for the beautiful preview.

  5. All of these are beautiful. Love the bud on that rose. Your unknown butterfly attractor does look like the butterflies would love it. I hope you find out what it is.

  6. It's amazing that such a scary-looking bud could turn into such a beautiful rose. Your blooms are lovely and the photos are gorgeous! The orange flower looks familiar to me, but I can't think of its name.

  7. That Burr rose is lovely--I also love the Snowball Viburnum, the white is luscious!

  8. Beautiful photos :) Perhaps the mystery plant is a variety of tropical milkweed??

  9. Lovely photos, isn't that peony gorgeous! And I bet the honeysuckle smells divine.

  10. Hi Lea, you have some great photos this month. The Columbine fairly jumps off the page. And that Burr Rose I've never seen before. The mystery flower at the end is very likely a Wallflower (Erysimum) though which one is hard to say. They grow easily and are often included in mixes. The Siberian Wallflower (Cheiranthus allionii) would be my guess from the picture.

    1. Hello John,
      I think you are correct - Siberian Wallflower it is!

  11. I love the snowball viburnum :) Beautiful flowers as to to write my post, even if it is a day late!


I enjoy your comments!
