Six on Saturday: And Now For Something a Little Bit Different

Spring flowering rhododendron, petite R ‘Impedium’ above and a normally early spring flowering Hellebore ‘Double Aubergine White’ below:

One of many flowers (mostly over) of winter flowering Viburnum bodnantense ‘Dawn’:

Flower buds on winter flowering Clematis armandii ‘Snowdrift’:

Seeds pods swelling on a potted calla lily in the Coop, where there has been an unusually large number of flies this summer (is it possible they have actually been attracted by the group of insectivorous plants that are in there?):

Almost all my witch hazels are covered in seed pods, proving that there are plenty of pollinating insects around in winter as well as the milder months:

That’s my Six for this Saturday; thank you to Jon the Propagator for hosting and do pop over to his blog to look at other sixes.

  1. Seeds are neat, haven’t seen either of those before. Do you grow Callas from seed?

    You are not the first sixer I have seen to have hellebore in flower. What is going on? Winter and spring flowers and only just the beginning of autumn.

    Some plants are definitely out of kilter with the calender..lovely macro pictures.

    Oh dear, not quite ready for winter flowers, that is early. I have noticed more seeds than usual on the witch hazels, I wonder why. What fun to have calla seeds, I wonder if they will come true.

    I used to grow Rhododendron impeditum years ago. I have not seen it since then. I have never seen witch hazel, but I intend to grow it. You got some enviables again.
