In this post, i will share with you Layia platyglossa,iceland poppy and ranunculus flowering right now.
Iceland poppies are my favorite as far as delicacy is concerned. We had few rains last week and weather was just superb, chilly to be precise. This made our spring last few week more. Iceland poppies are late bloomer as compared to other poppies. These are are very heat tolerant poppies but grown in masses give a gorgeous display.
This ranunculus i grew from tubers/corms and what a wonderful display it is. There are 5 more buds coming and i will post separate on them. Ranunculus is also grown from seeds and give superior results when grown from seeds. Its seedlings are mostly raised in hilly areas and brought to lower plants in winters.
Tidy tips (Layia platyglossa) is a popular annual here.I love the bicolor flowers. Local name is desi gendi. It has many colors and is very care free annual.
