sweetsnbittersCan anyone identify this lovely spring flower? @gowanus_nursery? @heymayahey? @sarah_c_owens?
- gowanus_nursery@sweetsnbitters is it edible?
- gowanus_nursery@sweetsnbitters does it have a Japanese name of kakaturi?
- sweetsnbitters@gowanus_nursery I have no idea! Was hoping one of you smart ladies could help me identify it!
- sweetsnbitters@umeboshikkosan do you know what this plant is called?
- maureenevansHello. I believe it is ribwort plantain (plantago lanceolata).
- maureenevans...normally their flowers reach higher however!
- sweetsnbitters@maureenevans thank you! I saw others where the flowers reached higher. Such a striking plant.
- sweetsnbitters@maureenevans alas, I just google ribwort plantain, and that's not it. This one has glossy leaves and sort of resembles hyacinth. The flower sort of looks like an allium.
- gowanus_nursery@ sweets bitters Heloniopsis orientalis blooms this time of year.....
- gowanus_nursery@sweetsnbitters I'd be open to a seed trade on that one ;)
- sweetsnbitters@gowanus_nursery I think that's it!
- maureenevansHurrah! @gowanus_nursery @sweetsnbitters
- umeboshikkosanI have no idea how it is called. I gotta see the real plant!
