Rosa Brooks (John Burton 2010)

The two nights of freezing temps hurt all the MDB's pretty bad. The unopened buds seem alright, but any opened flowers look "freezer burned" !

badly overgrown clump of Alpine Lake ((Willott 1980)

Lots of buds coming i the SDB's...and lots of lawn grass creeping into the clumps, too ! Some, I suppose , may be "seeding" from the lawn , but most, I think, is coming from the roots / stolons coming under the landscape timber borders

Thumb of 2021-04-26/crowrita1/d11213
Vixen Elf (Dee Stewart 2013)

Lots of buds coming !

Here's one that I have "given up on"...it will remain a "noid", as I've spent too much effort in trying to put a name on it...too many "test plants"...too many "comparisons" ! It came to me from a friend in Michigan...she has an entire area covered in it..it spreads like wildfire!...so, it's possible it is even a "seedling plant", from whatever was originally planted Shrug!

If you want some....just say so, there is a pretty big clump ! It needs divided, and moved to the edge of the bed, anyway, as it is, it's hard to see.
