"Aaron's Rod" is an early bloomer for me. One of the first in the garden, this photo was taken March 31. One of the best things about it is that it blooms all at one time on the stalk making a big display. It's not a stunner in terms of individual blooms, but the big stalks of flowers make up for it.
