... out in the garden.

Asarum pulchellum .This has slowly become one of my favourite species, growing steadily and expanding in the pot.(Not all of the species are as obliging under my conditions). Hairy flowers with white reflexed petals that become pink with age. Hairy green leaves with a bold splash of silver through the middle.

Asarum marmoratum . I have had a number of different plants sent to me under this name, but I think this is the real thing. It doesn't prosper as well as I would like, but it continues to flower from year to year, so I think it is reasonably happy.

Asarum maximum 'Ling Ling' . One of the most striking species in flower, this is an American selection of a Chinese plant. The black flowers with their distinctive white throats result in the name "Panda Flower". This one has only just opened, and will open up further and un-crumple. Later in the season the large green and silver leaves will unfold.

I have a lot of good intentions when it comes to updating this site, and I try to keep a note about what is going on, if you are interested.
