    Utric blooms of spring

    It's been a very good spring for my plants as they've presented me with some flowers that I've never seen before (in person).

    I'll start with the flower of the month - U. longifolia ...




    .... and now my super surprise - U. nelumbifolia. I got some of these plants late last summer and never expected flowers for some time. One of my plants not only bloomed, it had two stalks (another plant still attached to an aerial stolon sent up a stalk but I clipped it - what was it thinking??).



    .... and the one below clearly shows the stripes on the spur - very cool.


    ... and my vote for the most under-appreciated plant of the group - U. nephrophylla - lovely ivory white offset by colorful protruding eyes....



    .... and now the 'Triclops' - three eyes (& yes - that's a 2nd spur)


    A few from the 'Little weedy section'... First up - the turtle shell of U. graminifolia...



    The plant that gets my vote for most difficult to photograph - U. bisquamata


    ... to give an idea of the size - here's one that includes my skinny finger... combine this tiny flower with a point-and-shoot camera that doesn't have manual focus or depth-of-field control and you get a lot of


    I'll finish with a group shot of U. livida blooms ...

    ....some additional shots of U. livida & the others are in my growlist (typically different angles)
    All the best,
    Ron
