Wow! Ohio orchids! Very cool!Other than the orchids (I'd have to look them up to identify which is which), I'd say 1 is an azalea, no idea on 2, 3 is a tiarella, and 6 is a dwarf crested iris. How did I do? (I have some of that tiarella, which I got in another location in Ohio, where there were oodles of them. It's quite happy in my garden and has multiplied quite a bit since 2008.
Very nice collection!
Amazing photos! Especially that sedge, it was one I wanted to ID! How about a hint? Does it start with a "B"?
Absolutely gorgeous! I can't name them, but I can enjoy them.
He's some help with #2- It's Carex torta, twisted sedge!
