For a second year Cathy of Words and Herbs is hosting a Week of Flowers, inviting everyone to share some “extra colour and cheer” by posting one flowery photo a day, for a week.
During 2021 I have mostly posted floral designs and butterfly journal entries so will omit those images this week. I started growing Cerinthe two years ago. It reseeded generously the first year, not so much this year, but I have saved some seeds. I love its rich blue-green palette.
For an uplifting color boost this week visit Cathy in Bavaria at Words and Herbs to see florals from around the globe.
Oh how I love Cerinthe! So wonderful to see your pics. My experience is similar, I still have it – but it likes to put itself if places where I’d be inclined to weed it out.
I’m late to the party on planting cerinthe but I don’t think it’s very well known in my state of North Carolina. I love it too! I hope mine will sow itself around!
They are very pretty flowers, but the foliage is what attracts me most to them I think. I have seen them on several blogs this year and have finally bought some seed for trying them out myself. 😃 Thanks for sharing and joining in Susie. 🤗
I saw Cerinthe on English blogs for years and finally decided I had to try it. Hope you will enjoy growing them!
I am not familiar with this plant. It is pretty and I’ll have to see if it grows here.
Hope you’ll be able to grow it Judy. I can’t get over the coloration.
Cerinthe did not enter my conciousness until the last few years. Not sure why. Love the rich color of foliage and flower/
Amy, I don’t think many people grow it around here but I have seen it on a lot of English blogs for years. Finally I took action and so glad.
Beautiful, Susie. Amethysts and opals!
Lovely visualization, Eliza! I’m enamored!
I love these plants. I have a couple that still come back here and there from a sowing years ago but I really need to add more.
I should add more too. I don’t think the reseeding concept has taken hold well enough here, but have seen one plant!
Yes, that is a beautiful plant–both the blooms and the foliage. Good choice!
Thanks. It’s so hard to choose among favorites!
