ALPHABET SOUP.....M

Postby Katherine » Mar 13, 2012 1:00 am

Mmmmmmmmm....Soup! Yessiree, Ima follow Lizzies lead and start the Ms a tad early just to make sure the other half of the entire country can get their Ms in, while I am still in the scratcher. I WAS going to tell a long story about how the soup progresses as the sn*#w leaves my garden behind, and then durned if it didnt dump 6 inches this afternoon, ...and its sticking. Booo hooo.

Sooo.....Here are some Ms to start.

Thanks for getting an early start on "M's", Kat. I think we may have our spring hopes dashed later today as well.
Not a huge number of M's, it seems.

I must keep remembering the gorgeous day we had yesterday to get me through the mixed bag of crap promised for this week. Looking at the M's posted so far will give me a good start.
I have yet to meet a Meadow-rue(thalictrum) I didn't like and this pale yellow one that I started from seed a couple of years ago is no exception.

I suppose I could say the same for Monkshood(aconitum)

OK, let's face it, there is very few flowers that I dislike and this certainly is not one of them either.
Masterwort (astrantia)

Wow! Love the meadow rue Betty, and the Masterwort and of course the lilies Smitty, and, and, and...... I agree Betty, haven't met many fleurs I don't like.

Sharon is that Menziesia ciliacalyx a shade plant? It is too cute and I need some low growing ground covers for a shady area.

Lyn.....Menziesia is definitely not a shade plant. It requires much the same conditions as deciduous azaleas. We find it to be a VERY slow grower. We only have one or two plants and they are still very small after ~6 years. I think Bill started some more from seed this winter, we'll see how they go. I also believe they have changed the name of this species in the last few months, just to add confusion .
Hardiness might also be a concern for Alberta.
