Spring Colors

I can't keep up with everything blooming now, but here are some of my favorites:

Corydalis, this seeds around, but it is easy to pull and will grow in the shade. It does need regular summer water, if too dry it will go summer dormant.

Geranium x cantabrigiense, a well-behaved geranium. It spreads slowly, it is not a weaver.

Leucojum aestivum one of the prettiest spring bulbs. It is about 20 inches tall.

Mukdenia rossii 'Crimson Fans', a great new (harder to find) perennial for light shade. It blooms early and has great looking foliage.

Omphalodes, a nice herbaceous ground cover; it has spread slowly, only seedding in a few spots.

Pulmonaria 'Trevi Fountain', A good Lungwort. It has not had much of a problem with powdery mildew, and blooms long and early.
