Nice stuff, Wim!
I'm jealous of your different T thalictroides cultivars. Have tried to establish some here with little success :(

Thanks, Trond. Really weird that the T. thalictroides (Anemonella) doesn't grow at your place....maybe to cold in winter?? Would you like to try again?

Oh yes!
I don't think it is the climate actually but slugs and snails. I kill several small gastropods every day - but they are out in the night and they seem to prefere soft garden plants to grass and weeds :( :( Although it is mild it isn't very warm so the plants develop slowly and are prone to attack every night for a long time till they get so big and tough that the slugs loose interest.

It seems to be hardy here, so not surviving in zone 8 can't be due to any lack of hardiness!  Maybe it drowned, Trond.  ;D

I don't know what's the worse - whether it drowned or was munched by slugs :-\

The wild Thalictrum thalictroides here survive most of the summer in dry woodland soil as just tuberous roots and no foliage.  In the garden with better conditions, they tend to stay green far longer and flower for at least an extra month.

Last season I tried to collect seed for you, Trond.  I kept looking at them (the seeds), thinking they are almost ready but not quite, and the next time I went to collect, they would be gone.  I had never tried harvesting this seed before, so that was a learning experience, and now I now to take them at the more green stage.

Rick, I remember that you tried and appreciate your efforts! Hope you get some nice walks in the woods ;)

There are some very nice Anemonella! I like those Wim!

As a noob i want to send a little pictures to you.

I have send them in the Epimedium threat before, but as i can hear, here is the right place.

First i want to show an Aconitum hemsleyanum 'Red Wine' (ready for climbing up to the sky :-) )

Next picture presents a Brunnera 'Jack Frost' which brings a little light into my shadow areas

Maybe this plant takes attention to you profis- Caulophyllum thalictroides ( nice leaves ,pretty bloom and a nice built)
I enjoy having this plant!!!

And for an end today , here comes Dicentra cucullaria in bloom

Have a nice eastern (even if you don´t want to have a greedy rabbit in your garden :-) )

Hello Ernie! Neither of my Red Wines reaches the sky! One gets munched by slugs and the other gets down my throat ;)
Nice selection of plants!
Have a nice Easter  :)
