My gravel weedling "Xiangliu" - 2 main sprouts each with a "large" upright scape and multiple smaller lateral scapes.
I have counted 10 scapes so far.

This one ended up with 12 scapes:

This is the end of the flowers for this one. I have shown some of the earlier flowers.

What's interesting to me in this photo is that the plant is fading out while the very dark plant on the left looks fine. I had been guessing that most of the weedlings in the space were seeds of rectifilia types that had washed down the small slope. That very dark one got me thinking that maybe some Halcyon genes are floating around - Touch of Class and Dax are near this spot.

Just noticed that the two "main" center scapes are fused scapes. That's what causes to flowering clusters on the scape.

I thought most of these had round leaves but I'm seeing some ovals. It's from Elegans or Frances Williams.

Lots of new baskets even for my weedlings if I want to keep them. I have lost 5 named plants in the past week - El Nino, Lil' Abner, Great Arrival, Blue Mammoth, and something else that I can't remember. Just ordered some replacements from Chris.

I showed this one at the end of May when I first noticed it.
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=56350&start=80#p501527

It's still coming along. It has a very thick leaf which is "frosted" on the top and bottom.

It finally dawned on me (in the middle of the night) who one of the parents of this plant might be - Korean Snow. It's been bothering me for years trying to guess what would give me a small rippled leaf on seedlings. Usually I see bigger things. I had been ignoring the fact that I have Korean Snow about 5 feet from this plant.

The flower shape and striping match. I need to get a good photo of the stamen to see if they have different lengths that would show a yingeri heritage.

I have been protecting this one for a few years. I couldn't tell the parentage - there are a few in the area with rippled leaves. But it's blooming for the first time and Kinba is also flowering right next to it so I think that's the pod parent.

The one above opened a couple of days ago. As soon as I saw the light center streak I thought of longipes latifolia as the pollen "donor". It's flowering nearby at the same time. Some other possibilities are tibae and Red Dragon but I think either of those would add a lot more color to the flower (and be more interesting). But when it comes to weedlings who can tell except the bees.

Looking at the last post - I just noticed that rupifraga is also next to it and the flowers match. So I'm now thinking the pollen came from rupifraga and not longipes latifolia although they are similar.

Continuing with the last post I'm now thinking the pod parent may have been tibae. The leaves are a better fit. I still thinking the pollen was from rupifraga to get that flower color.

The weedling with some leaf variegation is showing it again this season:
This might be from Kinbuchi Tachi

This has been growing along one of my paths for a couple of years. I almost saw it flower last season but the scape got knocked off.

This second one has been coming along for a couple of years but is getting too big and pushing on the gold plant.
I just noted this season that the leaf ripples are similar in the green and the gold plants.
There a couple of other weedlings in there that need to be relocated.

This is the year it finally occurred to me that virtually all of this year's hosta work will be digging up volunteers and throwing them away. There's a Blue Mammoth I'd like to see...and a montana Aureomarginata...and a Dick Ward...and an Olive Bailey Langdon....and a Goodness Gracious. But there are large volunteers blocking the view. I've already freed up a Queen of the Seas that was being overrun.

Some of them look pretty nice, but my thoughts now are that they'd look a lot better in the yard waste pile.

Mine never seem to get very big (yet). The voles took out a few a couple of years ago. And some that I do move usually die.

Here is one I have shown before. I thought it might be from the Blue Angel next to it until my son said the coloration is closer to the Babbling Brook nearby.

That's Blue Angel bottom/right and Babbling Brook top/right - both in pots.

The big green top/right corner is probably off the Minuteman next to it is getting big - I have shown this one before. The one in the middle is an Elegans type that needs to come out. That's El Capitan bottom/left. The plant on the left might be Blue Umbrellas - I have post it before asking for an ID.

Finally caught the "big" yellow weedling in flower. The baskets are still to protect the plant and flowers. I'm guessing it's a seedling out of Elegans or Frances Williams.
That's Honeysong in a trough above it.

When I first set up my garden about 10 years ago I dedicated an area to have a row of Frances Williams, a row of Whirlwind, and a row of Fragrant Bouquet - the row had 3 or 4 plants. There was an Elegans on one side of the grouping and a Krossa Regal on the other side. They grew well for a couple of years and then disintegrated - root competition maybe. Today I can find remnants of those plants except for Elegans which I lost to voles BUT I have weedlings from it all over. During the 2010 season I had hundreds of tiny weedlings in this space but most are gone now. Some of the weedlings are now in flower. The weedlings seem to be growing better than what I had in there before.
I have no idea where those thin leafed weedlings are coming from - I think they put out a dark-striped flower later in the season.

There's even a gold version. On the left edge of the cluster you can see a small piece of Fragrant Bouquet.

The flower looks the same as the plant in the last posting.

One of mine opened its flowers and I got a surprise. Usually weedlings of this shape flower later with dark flowers. This one has a yingeri type flower with thin petals.

I tried to get a good photo of the stamen - what I got seems to show two different lengths.
weedling of yingeri 17 2204b.jpg

Then I went back to my garden map to see what was in the area. laevigata is very close-by - it's the only thing is the area with that shape flower.
