The first six pics are columbines which are nice because they are annuals.
the others I have no idea.
They are all grown from seeds given to me.

Dcarch,
Nice pics! I really love the columbines. I just wintersowed sowed some more for myself.

Honu,
The bright flowers at the end are Crocosmia. I'm not sure what the plant with the pink flowers and pretty foliage is, but I like it!

Thanks Dcarch & Remy! The pink & yellow one (#4) sort of reminds me of some orchids my mom used to grow a long time ago (before her entire collection was stolen).

OK, columbines are short-lived perennials in NY. Most of them are forms of the Mc Canna Hybrid series. # 2 is called "Nora Barlow". The ferny looking one with the pink flowers, I think is called "Herb Robert'' . It is a type of wild geranium.

Excellent pics!

Mine come back every year, they are less vigorous. Also they self-seed, but the next generation is not predictable.

Columbine is unpredictable if it self-sows. The majority of the large ones are hybrids. I do have a smaller purple variety I found growing wild. I will sometimes find pink in the stands.
