Boy ya'll are alot further along with your flowers than me :0( My primulas are just poking through the ground now.
I love that magnolia and witch hazel.
I can't seem to keep bloodroot alive, how do you grow yours so nicely Kim?
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 :)
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.
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
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 !
Hey P - I love that creeping blue veronica. Did you start that from seed ?
:-) Bonnie, it's nice to see you posting. Love those viburnum. I've one 'Burwoodii' I think. Love, love them.
