Tiny White Butterflies


This week I have been especially happy with Gillenia trifoliata.
Right now they bloom so charmingly.



In Finnish its name is Perhoangervo which means literally Butterfly spiraea.
There is no relation to spiraeas,
but indeed the flowers are like a million tiny white butterflies.


Gillenia is difficult to photograph,
I succeeded better as a bouquet added with Karl Rosenfield.

Floral Bliss #30


IT'S CAMPANULA TIME 


I don't know where this lilac Campanula latifolia / Ukonkello has come from. 
Maybe by cross pollination for I have it in white & blue too.
These are big & handsome plants but flowers last only a day or two.
They soon turn very, very ugly and I cut them down, also in order to prevent self sowing.



Looks pretty messy on photo but looks nice in the garden:
On the forefront high white & unknown Geranium, behind a large bush of C latifolia
and on the background Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diabolo'.




Campanula persicifolia / Kurjenkello in white or blue is my favourite.
These are just starting...



Campanula trachelium / Varsankello self seeds eagerly and the flowers last long.
The whites are not yet open.
