I'd say Anthyllis vulneraria var. coccinea

Dogwood??

These are grown for the leaves and the coloured stems in winter. The flowers are nothing much.

The ones known as flowering dogwoods are different species.

Hi bekkie, my armandii got very big, high up in a tree. Then bits browned off in the colder winters and i couldn't reach to get them down. It's big enough to swamp the average apple tree as well

I don't remember a smell Oneofseven and I haven't got any to go and check. I've never had to handle it either, just walked by it.

suggests that the whole plant smells not the flowers particularly.

It's dog's mercury. Mercurialis perennis.

 

Bee friendly plants for plot with natural springs?

Posted: 17/04/2015 at 18:12

I think I might start with a few  coloured stemmed dogwoods. It will give you something to admire in winter and can stand the terrain. Some spring bulbs, snake's head fritillaries wouds be good and probably narcissi but not tulips and crocus.

All those mentioned above plus marsh marigolds and cuckoo flower.
