  1. I love the variety of perennials in your garden!
    Eremurus is such a beautiful architectural plant!

  2. Thanks so much Tatyana, eremurus is one of my favorites!

  3. Cindy N. Says:

    your image for Rodgersia is an Astrantia. Beautiful photos!

  4. Thank you Cindy, the flower does look like an Astrantia, but look at the leaves – I wonder if I have an Astrantia growing under my Rodgersia! I’ll have to double check it when it next blooms.

  5. David Says:

    Your Dodecatheon is an Erythronium and your Darmera is a Petasites

  6. Thanks David, I listed them from plant tags that were sent with the plant when I ordered them. After looking them both up they look very similar – how do you tell the difference?

  7. David Says:

    Dodecatheon has flower parts in fives or fours, and the stamens are held tightly together. Erythronium has parts in sixes. with the stamens separated from each other.
    Darmera flowers have five separate petals, ten stamens and two slightly joined pistils. Petasites has a discoid composite head of many tubular florets.

  8. Thanks for the information! I’ve updated the Dodecatheon to Erythronium, but after comparing Darmera to Petasites again, the leaves of Petasites don’t match what I have. When the flowers bloom this year I’ll study them more closely
