We learn so much from photos in the wild, Claire. Thank you so much!
So many good subjects! Love them all!

Wonderful pictures, Claire. I'd love to see Lewisia tweedyi in the wild. There seems to be a lot of variation. I can't keep up with the name changes either.
Bellevue, Washington Zone 7-8
Thanks Claire, :)
53.69° N, Dedicated to West Coast Fritillaria, plus three other members of the subgenus Liliorhiza. I grow other Genera, as time permits !
Many of us have no intention of keeping up with these infernal name changes ... wonderful images, Claire - many thanks for posting.
Cliff Booker A.K.A. Ranunculus
On the moors in Lancashire, U.K.
Usually wet, often windy, sometimes cold ... and that's just me!
Just one more plant -- a fairly rare endemic, Valeriana columbiana.
Very nice Claire! I love them all! I wouldn't mind replacing the weed Valeriana sambucifolia I have in my garden with V columbiana!
Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!
This has to be the most beautiful of teucriums in flower - T. aroanum.

I garden in a relatively hot and dry region (for the UK!), with an annual rainfall of around 25", winter lows of -10°C and summer highs of 30°C.
Agreed, Tim. Pretty spectacular close up.
What size are we talking about here - leaves and flowers?
Only a couple of inches high Rick, but the plant spreads over about two feet in deep sand.
