... out in the garden.

7th July 2008

Hymenocallis longipetala .
One of those weeks when the rain arrived and then carried on arriving. Not that this Hymenocallis could care, it is perfectly happy in boggy conditions through the summer. This one has grown well since last year and is producing a second spike of flowers which will keep it flowering for a month or so and no doubt the rain will try to match it.

Zephyranthes drummondii .
I have been away for most of the weekend, and in the meantime a number of the rain lilies have sprung up. I raised this from seed, and they often turn out to be hybrids (because Zephyranthes put it about a bit), but this pot seems true to name.

Lilium regale .
This is one of the commonest and most beautiful of the lily species. I keep one in a pot in the greenhouse, and the flowering stems flop all over the path, but it is a small effort to squeeze round it, and the scent makes it a great delight.

Pinellia cordata .
This comes into the category of odd little things for the garden. I have killed it in the past by being too precious about it through the winter, so this one is going to have to take its chances among the alpine plants. Fabulous foliage (which isn't always the case with the tiny aroids) so it is delightful over long period.

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.
