This is already the last episode of the Stinzenflora-monitor of this season. Philippusfenne puts it this way: the leaves are on the trees and the stinzenflora season has ended. The coming week you can still enjoy聽the flowering of the Pheasant鈥檚 Eye, which is still flowering and the Bear鈥檚 Garlic.

Dekema State has planted the Pheasant鈥檚 Eye in the orchard.

There is also an impressive and very beautiful vegetation of the Bear鈥檚 Garlic at Dekemastate. The plant grows wild in South Limburg (NL), for example in the Savelsbos, where a carpet of flowering Bear鈥檚 Garlic now appears in the hilly forest. The Mourning widow with its dark flowers is now also in bloom. This plant can continue to flower for a long time. A flower only flowers for a few days, but new flowers keep coming.

Drooping Star-of-Bethlehem and Star-of-Bethlehem above Lesser trefoil at the (Schierstins).

This variety of the Drooping Star-of-Bethlehem always flowers later in the season at the Schierstins. Now it looks very nice above a tapestry of Lesser trefoil. Also the Star-of-Bethlehem is in this picture.

The late-flowering variant of the Drooping Star-of-Bethlehem is now in bloom together with the Star-of-Bethlehem. The latter type only opens when the sun is out.

The Double Meadow Saxifrage is still in full bloom just like the Meadow Saxifrage. As we reported last week, the bloom of the Double Meadow Saxifrage this year is a lot less than last year. The Meadow Saxifrage that we have sown in October 2016 in a small meadow at the Pakh没s SOLO in Stiens with seed from the Cruydthoeck company is coming up en masse this year and is now at the height of flowering.

Spanish hyacint at Philippusfenne between Ground Elder.

The Bluebells are now flowering quickly. The Spanish hyacinth is still in beautiful bloom. This Hyacinth flowers a little later than the hybrid and the Bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta). Because the plant is larger than the Bluebell, it competes more easily with other vegetation.

Leopard's-bane (Doronicum pardalianches) at Philippusfenne.

Leopard’s-bane (Doronicum pardalianches) at Philippusfenne.

The Leopard鈥檚 bane is now in full bloom. Blooming of this plant at Philippusfenne is very sparingly this year.

At Stinze Stiens, on the other hand, the plant is in full bloom from a plant we received from Philippusfenne a few years ago. The Plantain- leaved Leopard鈥檚 Bane will probably flower this week for the last time this season.

Star-of-Bethlehem at Stinze Stiens.

The Italian Lords-and-Ladies starts to bloom. Bluebells, Star-of-Bethlehem and Red campion between Ground Elder and grass now determine the atmosphere of a part of the Stinze Stiens park garden, which yields a beautiful image. In the orchard we let the Cow parsley take its course which, together with the afore mentioned species, gives a completely different appearance.

We hope that you enjoyed this spring season with the Stinzenplants in all those beautiful estates. You can also read the facts about the ‘soil that forms the basis’ in the Management section of the monitor: click here.
