One Pot update

These photos were taken on 27 April, 2008.

Linanthus ciliatus (now known as Leptosiphon ciliatus). This is doing great. Seed was from TPF and was my own little adjunct to the One Pot project.

Douglas' Meadowfoam (Limnanthes douglasii). There's some small blooms getting ready to come out that were more apparent a couple days after this photo was taken. It's looking a bit stressed though - perhaps I've overwatered. A quick Google search suggests that I ought to have high expectations for the flower - it seems to be fairly showy and long lived. Perhaps a good addition to next year's front meadow.

Tidy Tips (Layia platyglossa). After this photo was taken I started harvesting the seeds for next year. Some have already distributed themselves around the yard by wind. I've placed others in good homes.

Not shown:

Miniature Lupine (Lupinus bicolor) - Almost inconsequentially small and a poor germinator

Globe Gilia (Gilia capitata) - never germinated, but I have plenty in the front yard. Perhaps it really requires full sun.

Miner's Lettuce (Claytonia perfoliata)- Oversown in Gilia pot, never germinated. I've had bad luck all around with this seed. My peat pots with it never germinated either.

  1. I'm sorry to hear about your Claytonia. I'm surprised. Maybe it would be better sown in fall.

    And my meadowfoam is just about to bloom, too. It should actually be the earliest flowering spring annual around here but I obtained the seed late in the season.

    Must remember to collect some Layia seed...

    The few Lupinus bicolor that survived my impatience are starting to gain a little stature. The flowers are tiny little things.
