Argemone polyanthemos

Crested Prickly Poppy

Although we've had these survive the winter, even with no snow cover, treat as a self sowing annual.  They survived in Okotoks in the front rock garden.

Site carefully, this is one prickly plant from top to bottom.   Seeds are not fun to harvest.  

It sure is pretty though, and a favorite of mine.

Corydalis aurea

Golden Corydalis, Scrambled Eggs?  This common name is listed on Google.  Interesting considering its toxicity.

I really like the golden yellow blooms amongst the fern like foliage.

Gilia capitata

A delicate airy annual, great for pots and window baskets.  Covered in tiny mauve blooms with peacock blue anthers mid July into August.  Dead heading will produce more blooms especially if the weather holds into September. 

I prefer to toss some seeds into a pot, water it in and let nature do her thing.  Couldn't be any easier than that.

Positioning:Does best in full sun

Lavatera trimestris

Annual mallow, rose mallow, royal mallow and regal mallow, that's a few common names and I'm sure there are probably more.

Super easy to grow just about anywhere.  I've found it self seeds quite well, even here in zone 2.  Easy to pull if you don't want it, but why wouldn't you.  Blooms well into fall.

An elegant, airy annual.  Covered with petite, star shaped white flowers over silvery-green foliage.  Grown in masses in a shady area of the garden, the effect is beautiful.   Does well in pots and planters.  Will bloom until first hard frost.  Will self seed a bit. 

Toss the seeds about where you want them to grow, they will.

Talinum paniculatum - Jewels of Opar

This is an interesting little plant. Used in Chinese medicine and can also be used as a substitute for spinach (I've tried it, it would make a nice addition to a salad). Group many plants together in plantings, flowers are bloom on airy stalks, they are small but are nice massed together, especially with the red bead-like buds and fruits. Bees love them.
