    Smoke Bush, Cotinus coggygria. This plant was purchased two years ago for $1 at Home Depot. This is the first bloom.:

    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Wood Poppy, Stylophorum diphyllum. Not to be confused with the very similar appearing European import Chelidonium majus:

    Love wood poppies. I have quite a few reseeding amongst my fern bed. Here they pretty much get done by May.

    A friend had a section of backyard under a high canopy that was planted with Wood Poppy, Virginia Bluebells and Woodland Phlox which all bloom together. The sight of them in full bloom would take your breath away.

    Full disclosure, this plant is actually in the bog, but isn't supposed to be. Each year I grow a pot of these annuals from the previous year's seeds, and usually a plant or two pop up around the garden. This year the pot went bust, not a single plant germinated. And this is the only volunteer, so even though it grew where it shouldn't, I need it for seed. Opium Poppy, Papaver somniferum:

    Epic cranberries there too!

    Poppies are one of my favorite flowers, and grow incredibly well, but unfortunately are cracked down on here. Even if you're a harmless little old lady who just loves the look of 'em in your garden. Quite a shame to stigmatize a plant for the rest of us who just consider it not only a superb ornamental, but also great pollinator food.

    It really is senseless to crack down on the flowers here. Opium production is incredibly tedious and time-consuming, and requires a third world labor force to be feasible. The experience of collecting a ball of raw opium about the size of a pea made me lose all thoughts of growing the plants for any other than ornamental purposes!

    I like the cranberry as a ground cover. It certainly covers a lot of ground fast!
