|Fritillaria acmopetala |
This is the dark form, I have. This Eastern Mediterranean species is very easy to grow, it can bloom in as little as 3 years from seed and freely makes offsets that once divided quickly grow to flowering size.
The weather continues the bleak, wet pattern we have been stuck in since early December. Trying not to complain, but seriously this entire weekend the sun showed itself for about 2 minutes. I'm really ready for the spring to settle in. Although I think I'm gonna spend spring break chasing winter with the kiddo trying to find the last of the powder on the Volcanoes of Central Oregon.
2 solid inches of rain, wind, temps in the low 50's, Just another March weekend.
