Two reliable species today - very different in their requirements though.
Corydalis buschii spreading in the woodland and Ranunculus parnassifolius on the roof!

Krish, how do you grow the Phacelia sericea?  What soil mix?  I have never been successful with it. 

Hi Gene
I grow them at two different places. One in the rockgarden where  the soil is lean,sunny and dry and the other one in a less sunny regular soil. Both came back and flowered for me for two years. The one in regular soil grew more and loose inflorescence. In fact I want to grow them very lean with tighter inflorescence.I am going to change the place to more harsher environment. In my climate it looks like it is easy to grow.

Krish, might I ask you to return to your previous posts to ad the plant names to the text of your post? - this enables the search engine to find the pictures.  :)

Good reminder Maggi, I had actually edited a number of previous posts to add in names, but I'm on another of my blitz training efforts and working all hours day and night before an upcoming trip for work.

Krish, earlier I added names to some of your posts here:

Also see the topic "FAQ - Images - Adding image names to the body of a post" in the "Announcements from Moderators and Administrators" board.
