Chinese Primrose, Wallflower, Alstroemeria

The Chinese primrose grows in the swamp and provides some nice color.

I showed this wallflower before, but I thought it looked full and attractive. Definitely long blooming. It has gotten a bit too big for its spot – I might see if I can tame it a bit.

I really like this alstroemeria. The stems are not long like the cut flowers that can be purchased in the floral department – it is a rather compact lovely thing. I wouldn’t mind having more alstroemerias (this one came from the hardware store last year).
