Here's a quick run through of this month's stand-outs:
And then there are the bulbs.
|Finally, here's a fuzzy photo of Ferraria crispa, also known as Spider Iris, another South African bulb. You can see a better photo of it here. Planted just a couple of months ago, I didn't expect to see any blooms on it this year but this plant surprised me by producing 2 flowers this far. They don't last long but they're interesting. I haven't had a chance to get close and smell them - they're reputed to have an odor that some people hate but others appreciate.|
That's my quick February favorite wrap-up. Visit Loree at danger garden to see the stalwart plants that are warming her heart after a particularly nasty winter in the Pacific Northwest.
