Three nice perennials, no make that four


Primula kisoana is pretty and very easy to grow. 'Nuff said.

So why don't we see more of the crazy Fritillaria imperialis? These were growing on Main St in Chelsea today. Look at those leaves! I can't stop staring! Did this evolve in the wild?


Our native trout lilies are just fine thank-you, but so is this readily available and easy-to-grow cultivar Erythronium 'Pagoda.'

This Ornithogalum is a definite keeper in my garden. Not invasive in the least, but competes on its own against Scilla. But I don't remember where I got it, or its specific identity.
