This white hyacinth may only bloom one time as hyacinths are not commonly seen in the Texas spring garden. It was one of the bulbs in the white selection of bulbs I received as my prize in the Gardening Gone Wild photo contest. It will be interesting to see if they return next year.
Other white bulbs from this selection are the white grape hyacinths. As they fade their foliage will be covered by the creeping wine cup.
The Tulipa clusiana, seem to be a little bit of a mixture. The red underside of the closed tulips opens to a brilliant yellow.
Bluebonnets are waiting in the wings for their day.
Winter must have been just what the stocks were looking for. They have put on an incredible display. All mauve, but the second ones to open were doubles.
Only one scabiosa plant made it through the winter and the first flower opened this week. I don't know anything about the structure of this flower but I noticed tiny flowers inside the center. Are they the flowers or is the whole flower the flower?
Columbines would probably take over the garden if I were to let them. The Hinkley's yellow seems to like sun or shade.
Too bad the garden is going to get another dose of winter this week. A likely frost on Saturday night following another bout of rain tomorrow morning. Time to get those plants indoors again!
