Witchhazel, Dwarf Arnold. I planted this baby last year, thus this is the first flowers in the garden. Just noticed it turns out to be too close to the wall. Will need to move this baby this coming Fall I gathered.

Please jump right in and share your photos. I've smitten with one of our neighbor's Star Magnolia planted on their front yard. So I've got myself one. And this year its blossoms are ...well wonderful!

I love that magnolia and witch hazel.

I just stuck it out there years ago and ignored it. I received a small piece of the double one in trade but it's still in the GH because others have told me they're hard to grow...now I'm scared to plant it out...LOL

Creeping blue veronica...cultivar unknown.

Kath, it's Ants' and Peggy's Bloodroots. I don't have any here -- yet. Just love those early bloomers. Each has a beauty of its own right. Here is a few Hiacynths.

I think this is squill.

I got my bloodroots from Loess Roots in November 2009 & planted them in December. He is in the garden watchdog Loess Roots http://davesgarden.com/products/gwd/c/4253/ & it is more like getting them from a friend than ordering from a company. I also got mayapples, dutchman's breeches & black cohosh plants from him & all are popping up already :)

I haven't had a chance to get back to see the opened bloodroot...need to check them. My dutchman's britches aren't up yet. Bear's britches are leafing back out.

Things are finally starting to open up here. If we could get a warm rain it would make a world of difference.

All I got is one forsythia, and 2 little johnny jump up's blooming---LOL--the peach trees buds are showing a little color. I hope it does not kill them with the rain and cold that is coming in.

Marietta, MS(Zone 7b)

My forsythia is just starting to get leaves :) My very first mayapple & looks like it is going to bloom too :)

I love pussywillow & have wanted some ever since I was a child. I ordered some but they did not live. Pretty sure they were doa.

Love those hellebores & that camelia too! I planted a camellia 3 years ago & still haven't had any blooms. It looks really good though... may have been a young one when I got it. I planted it for my dog Max when he passed.

cperdue if you were up north I'd have said your 'tulip tree' was a magnolia

MollyD

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

...magnolias. Common name; Tulip trees as they're known down South. Saucer Magnolia, there are several cultivars, each slightly different than the other. This is a lighter version of 'em. (Not quite fully open a couple of days ago -- they're fully open today. I'll add more pixs. later).

Here is the mentioned Saucer Mag. This is a small one. Some of the mature Magnolias in the area are sending out glorious blooms this year dispite the prolonged cold period during our unusual winter months.

Sandra, here are some Forthesia (spelling?) and Quince. It seems like our season is ahead of yours.

Hey Kim. Love that last shot - were you laying on the ground ? lol.
I have to look up those bloodroots too. Not familiar with them at all.
Love the camillias. I have a few, some are doing really good, and others aren't. No blooms right now though. I did just fertilize them, so hopefully they will do better next year.
Charlotte - your hellebores are amazing ! I thought mine looked good, but omg ! Don't you love them !

Lakeland / Memphis, TN(Zone 7a)

My alliums are coming up that I got from the coop last year. Can't wait to see all the blooms.

One of my ligularias. If it makes it - It'll probably be the first one of mine that survived. I keep trying them, but for some reason, just can't grow them. Must be where I am putting them.

Lots of work to do (that's all I see when I look in here)

Hey P - I love that creeping blue veronica. Did you start that from seed ?

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

:-) Bonnie, it's nice to see you posting. Love those viburnum. I've one 'Burwoodii' I think. Love, love them.

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

I forgot what this lovely yellow blooms are called other than Yellow of Texas. Terrye has given me this couple of years past.
