Adonis

Adonis vernalis from the European mountains.
Grows in a sunny spot in the rockgarden in rather alkaline soil.

I haven't seen the tiniest sign of mine yet this year. Last year they were beautiful, and I got a bunch more seedlings. I hope they come back as I want fill a  large area of them to replace some invasive Campanula punctata and Chrysanthemum weyrichii that I'm removing.

Mine (three large pots) haven't reappeared this year either, Peter ... not a sign (and I have, of course, delved down with a finger)?

Marvelous photos guys, the plants so sunny and welcoming, on two continents and flowering the same time! 

Peter, I might just have to relieve some of your burden of too many Adonis seedlings by taking a few off your hands ;D  Believe it or not, my garden is bereft of Adonis.  Did you get a new camera, that is heck of a good photo!

I could get a new camera, but what I need is a new photographer. My daughter took that photo, and those are the A. vernalis that I planted on a hill in front of her house 3 years ago. She has a much better setting for them, and I planted 8 plants, which  tripled in size in 2 years and produced a magnificent display last spring. I have one 'big' plant, and maybe 6 seedlings, which IF they come back this year will give me an opportunity to replicate my efforts in Winchester, NH. The photo here is of my much more modest planting, taken 2 years ago.

Todd , Wrightman has A. vernalis amurensis and Fraser's Thimble Farms has A. amurensis and an orange form of it (although, strangely, I can't get on to their website right now).

Edit:  Fraser's Thimble Farms site is working now:

Beautiful Adonis, everybody! One of my former  favorite genera but here the greedy gastropods share my interests but they prefere to devour the plants :( :(

Fraser's will not have them available until next year, but it's on my list!  Amurensis would do far better in my wet area than vernalis so I'll hold back on Wrightmans...as it is I just ordered 14 plants from him and 21 from Frasers!  I'm a sick puppy!  LOL!

Well Todd, in a way I am glad I can't easily order from those nurseries or it had been two of us ;D ;D
