Front Yard, mid-April flowers

Orchids! These are hardy lady-slipper orchids; Cypripedium formosanum.

I need to meet this plant in person to know for sure.  Looks like Anemone blanda but they never have blue centers.  Looks like Osteospermum spp but their leaves are simple, rather than compound as seen here.

Smoke tree,  Cotinus coggygria, probably ‘Royal Purple’

Fritillaria meleagris

Fritillaria meleagris; white form

More fabulous hellebores! There are zillions, I’m not going to guess the variety.

Will come back to this once it splodes.


More Epimedium; I think there are two types at least.

Tulipa orphanidea “Flava”

I want this to be Leycesteria formosana, but I’m not sure yet.

Podophyllum pleianthum, commonly called Chinese mayapple, and those orchids again.

Weeping willowleaf pear, Pyrus salicifolia ‘Pendula’

Not sure yet on this one…
