    These first flowers aren't so showy, but they're nice, right at the entrance to the tunnel. I'm not really sure we've seen them in bloom before. We followed the label on a branch to the flowers, and I was pretty sure the flowers belonged to the Schizophragma hydrangeoides label, which surprised us. Nadia has found what she thinks is the right name: Clematoclethra scandens ssp. actinidioides. Edited: but see below. The name is Clematoclethra scandens subsp. hemsleyi.

    This is Holodiscus discolor, ocean spray, a BC native. You can see it all along Marine Drive west of the garden.

    The Rosa damascena, damask rose, is just inside the entrance to the Physick Garden, and it's very fragrant. I was surprised how rough the leaves are.

    At last, Tropaeolum speciosum flowers in the Asian Garden up close enough to actually see them.

    I edited the name on the first flower. If we have it wrong, I hope someone will say.

    Here is another from the same day: not Romneya coulteri; corrected to Carpinteria californica, see below.

    The first plant is actually Clematoclethra scandens subsp. hemsleyi. The main plant is on the right with a 7-8 cm diameter, short trunk, planted behind the Moon Gate, but growing through it. There is a sucker stem coming out of the ground right in front of the Schizophragma. There are dried spent flowers on the Schizophragma closer to the tunnel. There are a lot of old vines on the Moon Gate. It is a bit confusing.

    Thank you. We didn't see the tag, thought we knew it.

    Huh yeah, I had it right the first time from memory, then thought to look up where it was from (near the city of Carpinteria), so guessed I was wrong.

    Fixed in my posting. The one time I copy something instead of just typing...
    Thanks for all this.
