Tiny Jewels Part II

The ridiculously beautiful spring parade continues.  
Above is epimedium grandiflorum var. higoense 'Bandit'.

Good old reliable arabis sturii.

Home Depot aubrieta.

Home Depot saxifrage (L) and aubrieta x cultorum 'Royal Blue'

Veronica whitely is out to dominate this trough

Aquilegia viridiflorum

A couple days later on and it's fully open.  (Thanks, Hilary)

Fritillaria uva-volpis (back) with white dodecatheon in front.

That red pasqueflower really hit its stride this week.

I got one flower on androsace barbulata

The native aquilegia canadensis self-seeded into a crack in the patio in front of a trough.

 Saponaria ocymoides

Another sax from Home Depot.

Daphne cneorum 'Blackthorn Triumph'

Potentilla porphyrantha

The nearly-impossible-to-photograph-well mattholia trojana.
