Lots of scents in a vase on Monday

A mixture of strong scents are in my vase this week. One of the strongest and and a favourite of me and the bees is the yellow Erysimum, a shrubby perennial wallflower which flowers all winter.

Vase of cut flowers - narcissus

The Narcissus Earlicheer, Soleil d’or, and Grand Monarch all have strong scents, each a little different. The kniphofia is a small, fine leaf type, maybe poco yellow, or yellow popsicle.

The Salvia is either ‘Amore’ or Salvia sagittata. I’ve only taken a little of that as all the bees love it and I like to leave it for them when it’s warm enough for them to venture out. Thank you to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden who has Zinnias this week.

  1. It is refreshing to see spring flowers and nice to see a blue salvia with them… something that wouldn’t happen here unless you had a heated greenhouse perhaps! LOL!

  2. That kniphofia with its slightly different shade of yellow adds that little extra something to your spring blooms Cath – such a refreshing vase to those of us in the northern hemisphere

    1. It’s a nice little kniphofia, it seems a bit more robust than ‘Little Maid’ and a little rounder than the ‘popsicle’ ones. I’ll have to dig around it and see if I buried the label with it :/
