AKA "I love my macro feature."

I don't really know what any of these plants are, but I'd love to, if any readers have a better clue than I do.

The third one is pasque flower (Anemone patens), so called because at least in these parts, it tends to bloom near Easter. It's a prairie plant.

The first one is absolutely spectacular. It may be wild hyacinth (camissia scilloides), but I'm not sure.

The yellow one looks like an iris. It may be yellow flag. Though I'm not actually sure that that's native. Blue flag is.

Thank you!

I believe the gardens weren't required to have 100% native plants, so it could be yellow flag.

It turns out that Yellow Flag is native, but I can't find any photos of it that have those stripes. That's got to be an iris, though.

Piranha may be right about number 3, but it's blooming here right now and I've seen some odd garden variations. I take back the present-tense affirmation, however, and substitute a conditional.

Wow, I like that third one and the leaves(?) on that last one are cool.

yay, macro feature!
last one is a stonecrop. maybe a sedum clavatum -- the only one i ever had like that was bluer and more dusky, but it looks otherwise very much like it. the purple leaves coming out have nothing to do with it; that's another plant i imagine. :)

#4 is iris variegata with the ends of the dark patterned leaves eaten off, *heh*. like here: http://www.rz.uni-karlsruhe.de/~db50/FOTO_-_Archiv/Iris%20variegata%20BotKA%20G4.jpg.

i don't know that #3 is a pasqueflower -- the wooliness certainly made me think of it too, but it's too late for it, isn't it? it also doesn't quite look right, though that's not a plant i know well -- but in my mind the blossom has its own stem, no protective capsule leaves (whatever the real name is for them), and the leaves are thready. *googles*. like: http://www.photoshutter.com/flower/fl-66l.jpg. that picture rocks! *googles some more*. oh man. you got a lot of woollies: http://elib.cs.berkeley.edu/photos/flora/com-W.html -- calphotos is such a great site; i had all forgotten about it.

don't even have a remote clue as to #2. go back when it's beyond budding. :) not that that helped me with #1, mind. it is not a camas (they're native here), but i don't know what it is instead.

*snrk* on the chewed iris. The perils of organic gardening.

and yay macro feature :)

Hee! I've recently discovered the macro feature, myself. :-)

Wow! The second one has me oscillating between, "Hey, that looks tasty!" and then, "GACK!!" at the thought of eating it. The last one is totally neat. :)

The purple bits in the sedum look like a wandering-Jew variety.

I join the hordes who are crazy for the first one but have no idea what it is.

I spent two wonderful hours perusing my collection of Gardening and flower books, but was unable to figure out what type of flower was in the first picture. Thank you for sharing your pictures. If anyone figures it out I sure would like to know, it is very nice.

Thanks for your efforts! I hope you enjoyed your perusals.
