Those tulips are quite erect.

#3 is lilac, Syringa sp.
I think it's named after the colour of the flowers.

Smut Clyde said...

Is #4 a paeony of some description?

Jennifer said...

I concur with Smut. The leaves of #3 definitely look like lilac leaves, although I can't say I've seen a variegated bloom before.

The last one definitely looks like a peony.

Lilacs and peonies they are. Thank you, flower experts.

I thought that lilac should be easy...4 petals, colors white and purple, bush taller than 2 meters...but no dice.

(Though they do have a lilac in their pages...note the name of the person who uploaded it!)

Bet it's real easy to hide growing your stash midst all that greenery.

Kathleen said...

Kathleen said...

Jennifer said...

Kathleen is MEAN!

Smut Clyde said...

I should have expected a vulgaris lilac from Thunder-Member.

Jennifer said...

LOL!

Big Bad Bald Bastard said...
