Today we’re in Stamford, Connecticut. Elle Ronis’s garden is always spectacular. We’ve visited it before (Elle’s Garden), and today we get to enjoy it in peak spring bloom.
This azalea (Rhododendron hybrid, Zones 5–9) has double flowers, with extra layers of petals, shading through every tint of pink.
Japanese wood poppy (Galucidium palmatum, Zones 5–7) has to be one of the most beautiful woodland perennials.
This is an unusual form of rue anemone (Anemonella thalictroides, Zones 4–8). A little spring ephemeral, rue anemone is a common wildflower in the woodlands of eastern North America and usually has small, white flowers. This form has double blooms with greenish petals and makes a dramatic—and longer lasting—statement in the garden.
Hardy cyclamen (Cyclamen hederifolium, Zones 4–9) has beautiful, patterned leaves that emerge in fall with the flowers and last through winter into spring. These will be going dormant soon.
