Viburnum carcephalum is the most fragrant of the Viburnums.
Azalea 'Coral Bells' was brought up from Alexandria and is always covered with blossoms though it's only supposed to be marginally hardy here.
Allium triquetrum ends up looking a lot like Ornithogalum.
Within the fence the Tulipa sylvestris now survives without being eaten by the deer
The Anemone nemerosa 'Bractea Pleniflora' is probably my favorite of the nemerosas.
Anemonella thalictroides 'Rosea'. I'm going to watch for seed from this one.
Trillium pusillum 'Roadrunner' is my all-time favorite Trillium. The color changes from white to pink as it ages over a nearly a month in bloom.
Trillium erectum has a very red flower. No sign of multiplying yet.
Trillium cuneatum in morning light
Corydalis 'Purple Bird'
Epimedium wushanense 'Sandy Claws' is already huge for an Epimedium. This one has big landscape impact and is good for four seasons.
Epimedium grandiflorum 'Pretty in Pink' was a Plant Delights acquisition last year.
Epimedium 'Cupreum' was another purchase from Garden Visions at Stonecrop last year
Offerings from the camellias
Muscari 'Blue Magic' is a particularly nice Muscari.
St Francis is now presiding over dry shade lovers
Bluebells in the side garden
Corydalis turtschaninovii Eric the Red. This is probably my favorite of the new Corydalis. Note the bronzed leaves. The flowers are getting bluer as they age.

Podophyllum hexandrum shows a little offshoot at the base this year...
Podophyllum delavayi may be the most dramatic looking of the Mayapples yet.
Helleborus 'Pink Frost'
Loropetalum. You can see the relationship to the Witch Hazels.
Epimedium 'Bicolor Giant' from Garden Vision last year.
This is a very hardy Azalea which is our second flowering after the carolinianum. I swear the name was Helen but I can't find a clear reference for it on the web. It grows where many a Rhodie has perished.
Lamium orvala. Thanks to our Boston source...
This Ixia hybrid 'Buttercup' is covered with flowering stems, kind of like crocosmia does later in the season. We've moved it outside the greenhouse now and potted it in the ground.
Lewisia Tweedyi from Evermay
The hillside has taken on a new look with only the single dogwood standing where the trash pile once dominated.
Jack-in-the-Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum) in the Woods. Note the colony forming.
I don't know how much longer our Prunus serrulata 'Shirofugen' will last. Hoping they have a stress-ftee year.
