Well what is it? It's not like you to not tell us the proper name of some exotic California cutie in your garden. It looks a bit like a poppy.
Oh, it's nothing. They sell these little anenomes as shriveled up tubers at the nurseries for $.40 a piece in the summer and fall. They don't even come with a botanical name as far as I know. I've tried them three years in a row (because they're only $.40/piece), and this is the first year they've come up.You can also get them in white, magenta, or...um, some other color.The green is a Ribes sanguineum, leafing out.
Nothing, Chuck?? A gorgeous blue flower is nothing?? It looks a lot like the Anemone coronaria "Harmony Blue' that Lost Roses had on her blog last year. I have a few anemones coming up but only a hot pink color so far. Annie at the Transplantable Rose
Wow--you're right, Annie! Total loss of perspective on my part. It is a gorgeous flower. And it's not like I'm sick and tired of seeing those this time of year.Thank you for pointing to an identification. The bin just said "Anenome, $.40". So, I figured they were kind of trivial insofar as far as value goes. I should be ecstatic to have gotten something so nice for so little!
That's 40 cents well spent!
Great photo and a particularly beautiful shade of blue. Your forty cent investment certainly paid off! I enjoyed visiting your blog very much. Jon on 3-3-08 at http://mississippigarden.blogspot.com
