Glaucidium palmatum

Submitted by Hoy on

Is this a Glaucidiaceae, Paeoniaceae or a Ranunculaceae?
Anyway it is a fine plant starting to flower now, a little later than last year.
1) April 2010
2) April 2009

One of my favorites!  Mine is not even showing itself yet! Early June is the regular blooming time here!

I am waiting for this genus to appear! And I am hoping to get the white one too.
Here are pictures from last season:


My clump is getting too big. Has anybody tried to divide this species?

Yes Trond...I divided mine last spring and they did great! I wacked it up into lots of pieces...potted and/or spread them around the gardens. Keep them moist & in extra shade for a week or so.
Your clumps are gorgeous!! I also would love the white form.

Trond beautiful plants, i used to keep mine in pots and they did nothing until I saw a friends planted out and since I put mine in the garden they have rushed away. Only problem is slugs eating the merging shoots.

Last years seed has come up in abundance this week.

Tony, do you have slugs too  :o ;)

Did you plant the seeds indoors, outdoors or let them plant themselves?

I sow my seeds in pots and they were in a cold frame over the winter,they would never survive in the garden.
