Shade Garden



* Posted by Hello I don't know the name of these flowers, they were already in the garden when we bought this place. I adore them though--they close at night and open in the morning. Anyone know the name? I would love to plant more.

I was seriously thinking about growing honeysuckle in the shade garden, but I've hesitated because honeysuckle is considered a Vermicious Knid here in Connecticut. Apparently it's taken over in Washington, too. If you can believe it there's a trellis under this honeysuckle at
Jennifer's.

they are called squill and they are a tiny spring bulb. Now my dear you own me a dollar fifty.

At last I know the name of this flower. Nice series of pictures you are posting, Suzanne.

Hi Suzanne: my first post didn't go through, I guess.
We have these in our garden, too. But I don't think they are called squill. I think they are called "Star of Bethlehem" or ornithagulam (sp?).

Okay I am anal about this, forgive me but they are both in the same family yet look at the width of leaves in both photos. They are different.
