back swimmer, water boatman, same insect

I don't think it's a great diving beetle but water beetles do have wings and they do fly. With those long back legs I wonder if it's a water boatman, usually seen the other way up in water

I had the species, I grew it from seed but never got it to flower. Maybe I should have had more patience but eventually I dumped it for something else

I so enjoying this seed swap/share it is great swapping with you all and finding plants that look just lovely in other gardeners gardens


I do agree Gardengirl, I've already sown the Roscoea seeds that fidgetbones sent me.

Gardengirl, it's a good job you reminded me. I checked all the orders and found your envelope in the cupboard I've harvested some more Yellow Rattle, I'll give it a day or 2 to dry and let the insects escape, then post. 

If anyone doesn't get what they're expecting from me this week (except cotty) please shout. I hope everyone who wanted rattle will get it though, it's shedding like mad out there now.

They do Berghill. My thought that this is alatus is based on that slightly 'squashed' appearance of the whole shrub.

I'd say Calycanthus floridus
