Between health and being away on holiday, I’ve not been posting Daily Perennials for a couple of weeks. I’ve decided that previously it was requiring too much work/energy researching each plant, so I’ve decided to simplify it with a picture and a fewer words.
This is species tulip: Tulip Humilus Eastern Star. It’s the last of the species tulips (meaning, closest to the wildest ones) flowering in my garden this year. Great colour, and loved by the bees.
I have this in my mini Forest Garden Border. It’s a good evergreen mat-forming ground cover plant and helps cover bare soil so there are less weeds. Another one loved by bees. It also has purple leaves and flowers. I love purple.
It seemed appropriate to post the Pasqueflower, the Easter flower, on Easter Sunday. Do stroke this plant, the flowers and leaves. It’s so tactile with it’s silky fine hairs; like stroking a cat. Mmmm. Another purple flower 🙂
