Backyard

Parthenocissus quinquefolia, Virginia creeper.

Various carnivorous plants (Sarracenia spp.) and other weirdlings.  The mossy stuff is Sagina subulata; Scotch (or Irish) moss. Not actually a moss.

Sarracenia sp.  These are water-loving bog plants.

The dark purple is Eucomis comosa ‘Sparkling Burgundy’. The soft silvery-green thing between the Eucomis is Potentilla peduncularis.  Makes a yellow flower.  The spiky green leaves in upper right belong to an Iris.

Citrus trifoliata ‘Flying Dragon’ – Japanese bitter orange.  Spiny.  Will get much bigger if not pruned assertively (you can see evidence of hard pruning here).

At right, Bletilla striata ‘Alba’,  Top: Melianthus major (this guy will need to be moved).  Left: Carex sp?

Tall stuff on right is Canna.  Flower will tell which. The variegated shrub I believe is Cornus alba.

The small bronze palmate leaf in lower left belongs to a Rodgersia; the taller strappier leaves just above it I *think* are Lobelia tupa, and the huge flat leaves are Podophyllum pleianthum.

IMG_1908

Lobelia tupa for sure.  Behind it is black bamboo.

Tall plant in back: Thalictrum sp. (meadow rue).  Middle plant with finely cut leaves: Syneilesis aconitifolia (shredded umbrella plant).  Front, low one: Lathyrus vernus.  Makes purple flowers.

Paris polyphylla.  Lower left: Aquilegia vulgaris ‘Leprechaun Gold’ and Adiantum venustum (maidenhair fern).

IMG_1915

Actaea racemosa, I think.
