More Than An Afterthought

The flowers of Adonis amurensis are among the brightest and cheeriest in the early spring garden, often blooming while snow is still on the ground, and while the plant's foliage is just starting to spread out. The foliage however, is quite a treat in itself, being somewhat waxy and fernlike; it then goes dormant as the weather warms. Adonis doesn't stick around very long each spring, but while here it is certainly a double dipper of a plant.

Lovely, feathery leaves.
interesting plant. I am glad you are looking forward to spring. What do you have growing around it to fill in when the foliage fades?
Wayne... they are growing close to some disporums, which grow up and branch out over the top.
