    From my fields, these are the earliest flowering ones. Species or near-species (suppose not more than one outcross from the original).

    Above is what I’ve bought last year as ruprechtiana. First year after division of course. Foliage still brownish green, but changing fast into green the last days. And a close-up below of the open flower. I’ve tried to show both the tomentose carpels and purplish filaments.

    And another early one. Have bought this one as caucasica seed, one of them turned out to be white. Weak and ugly plant imho, but white is of course an asset here 😀

    And then there is my earliest favorite one. Also from the same seed batch, thus presumed caucasica, now daurica coriifolia, but my plant has too many leaflets to be just that. Good plant habit, with sturdy stems.

    And another close-up of ruprechtiana, after i’ve removed the stamens. You can now also see the purplish pink disc under the carpels.

    For comparison as to the flowering time, here’s mlokosewitschii at the same time, won’t be long before it flowers as well of course. In the background you can see several rows of Canary Brilliants (with the bronze foliage) and after that you can see Cytherea, which are two better-known varieties of course.
