FFTD: Marsh Tickseed

Posted on

It took me a while to find this one. Even Pl@ntNet had trouble. At first, I thought it was a Coreopsis but, the petals didn’t match. Then, I thought it might be a Cosmos but, the petals still didn’t match. This is a Bidens Trichosperma. I think there has been some classification shuffling but, they are all in the Asteraceae family or Sunflower family. ~Vic

Update:
As it turns out, thanks to Pl@ntNet, this is an Iberis Umbellata or, Globe Candytuft. I think it may have already bloomed and the center colors are all that is left. It appears to be the same thing as my previous post.

This looks like a tiny bird nest with eggs. If anyone knows what this is, let me know. ~Vic

I had intended to post my museum pictures but, I’ve been too busy. I thought this might be a Bluebell but, it isn’t. I’m still trying to identify it. ~Vic

Update:
It’s a Grape Hyacinth!

I haven’t gotten a shot of our now-blooming Narcissus. They started coming up last month. They seem to enjoy the cold weather. I’ve seen them bloom with ice on the ground. ~Vic
