Nice plants! Fabaceae once was my favorite plant family, and they still are although I do not grow many.
I had that Thlaspi once - from seed - but it didn't survive its second winter (too much rain I presume).
Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!
And it looks like Synthyris dissecta will bloom this year: Edit: Turned out to be Phacelia sericea!

Very expertly grown!

An update from the rock garden... I was away overnight and everything just exploded!
Phlox kelseyi; Lomatium multicaule; Primula scotica - I remain rather surprised at how little water this plant can live happily on:
Androsace incana - there seems to be a mix of little plants with very short flower stems and longer stemmed ones?; Eritrichium howardii; Androsace lactea:
And the star of the show right now... Astragalus loanus - to be honest, I was wondering why the afficionados seem to get rather excited about this plant, but this year, I am impressed! It's blooming heroically and the flowers are huge for such a tiny plant!
Aethionema saxatilis v. oreophila; Iris taurica; Gentiana verna:
Phlox multiflora; Erysimum capitatum v. capitatum:
Pulsatilla patens flavescens... I'm very keen to see the flower open! Looks like quite a strong yellow colour! I'm puzzled though, since the native Pulsatilla patens here bloom before sending out leaves... ? (Again, need to pull out the new Grey-Wilson Pulsatilla book!) EDIT: Doh! Correction, it's Pulsatilla albana ssp. lutea... just like it says on my map!
Lori and others ,lovely to see all the colour in your gardens .The only thing in bloom down here at the moment are Galanthus and a pot of Narcissus viridiflorus.Hopefully I'll get some pics tomorrow to post.
