It’s Tuesday again, and I am overflowing with images! Enough for next week, too, I think, or almost. Let’s see how many I use here.
Last week’s Tuesday Treats on Friday have been edited to show the identities of our mysteries, and you can see it here:
So, today’s Nature Table… See what you make of these:
1 Edited to add:
Japanese anemone, Anemone x hybrida ‘Honorine Jobert’ AGM. One of the best, discovered in Verdun, France in 1858. Grows to 1.5 metres.
2 Edited to add:
Another Japanese anemone, Anemone x hybrida ‘Pretty Lady Susan’. This is part of the ‘Pretty Lady’ series, from Blooms of Bressingham via Mr. Yoshihiro Kanazawa of Japan.
3 Edited to add:
And yes, another Japanese anemone, Anemone x hybrida, an old planting, name lost in the mists of time.
4 Edited to add:
Arum italicum ssp italicum ‘Marmoratum’ AGM, late summer spike of orange-red berries. ‘Marmoratum’ means ‘marbled’, referring to the white-veined leaves.
5 Edited to add:
Lathyrus latifolius ‘Rosa Perle’ AGM. Commonly known as ‘Pink Pearl’. The only thing these lovely perennial sweet peas lack is a scent. So, grow a few scented ones through them. And yes, the flower on the right is a passionflower, Passiflora caerulea.
6 Both flowers and foliage, please.
Edited to add:
A lovely clump of Cyclamen hederifolium AGM, growing next to a Heuchera.
7 This shrub is flowering for the second time.
Edited to add:
Viburnum plicatum f. tomentosum ‘Mariesii’ AGM. Well, that was a mouthful. The gardener tells me this is a second flowering – I think that’s unusual, unless you know different?
8 Edited to add:
The beautiful blue Salvia patens AGM. The image was sent as ‘Blue Ensign’, but I can’t find any reference to that cultivar. However, many names such as ‘Oxford Blue’ swirl around the species itself.
Good luck! Get as far as you can with the name, even if it’s only the genus. Further is good, though. Answers next week.
Edited to add: So, how did you get on? Treat yourself to some virtual chocolates! Well done!
