Long after the thick green foliage has gone, the little lavender crocus-like blooms shoot up from bare ground.
I only received these bulbs last fall. When I got them, I didn't even know what they were. They just appeared on my deck. I still don't know who put them there. (Here is my first post about these flowers)
Thanks to a lot of info from Kathy and Chloe, I am now pretty colchium savvy.
I am very thankful to whomever put them on my deck. I hope they multiply fast because I wouldn't mind having a few more. As you can see, they are barely visible in front of the huge boulder.
These little beauties were the cause of a lot of work for me today. You see, I thought I would just run out and get a quick picture. While out there, I spotted this mess of Snow-in-summer plants (Cerastium tomentosum) growing in the middle of this creeping phlox. There's also some
Bishop's Weed, Gout Weed, Snow-on-the-Mountain (Aegopodium podagraria)...whatever you call it, it's a very aggressive plant that I want out of this area. It's the variegated stuff near the shovel.
