ADONIS - "Adonis Flower" or "Pheasant' s Eye"
So popular are the beautiful Spring-flowering perennials, Adorns vernalis and the newer A. amurensis, that the annual species of this little family of the Buttercup tribe (Ranunculaceæ) are apt to be overlooked. But they are very pretty, perfectly hardy, and quite easily raised from a March sowing in the open ground. Their height varies from 1 foot to 18 inches, according to soil and position. Both the following species are suitable alike for the front of the mixed border and for the Rock Garden.
ADONIS - Adonis Flower or Pheasant's Eye
Adonis aestivalis is from Southern Europe and has crimson-scarlet flowers, while A. autumnalis has blood-red blooms with a dark centre. Both plants commence to flower in June, earlier if sown in the Autumn, and each produces elegant foliage as well as bright and attractive flowers. A. autumnalis is a native plant, and one familiar in some districts as Corn Adonis, Pheasant's Eye, or Red Chamomile.
