Cute Anemonella and Dwarf Forsythia

Anemonella thalictroides

These are really nice plants and easy to grow. Mine bloom for at least a month to 6 weeks and will sometimes rebloom in the fall. They will go dormant in summer if kept too dry, but still will return the following spring. About 5 inches tall and will reseed nicely. Note the tiny seedling in the lower left hand corner with the 1 tiny flower. I have mine in full morning sun.

Forsythia Show-Off Sugar Baby

This was a new plant last year and of course, like most shrubs the first season, hardly grew at all. I was really surprised to see the flower production this spring especially when you consider this plant is only 6 inches tall. Ultimate height is between 18 and 30 inches.

Forsythia are kind of iffy around here because the flower buds above the snow line often don't survive. Since this one is so short, I hope it does better.

So pretty and such a welcome sight after the long, cold, snowy winter that seemed to last a full 6 months. The only things blooming for me at the moment are lungwort 'Raspberry Splash,' fern-leaf bleeding heart, Virginia bluebells, 'Jack Frost' brunnera and a NOID azalea my folks planted 20-30 years ago. Still, any color other than white is welcome & a sight for winter-weary eyes.

Kevin, I have an obsession with anemonella. Absolutely love it and pick up more varieties whenever I can. I'll get my butt outside tomorrow for some pics to add to yours. Just picked another one up this past weekend.

So many obsessions, so little money....LOL!
