FIRST FLOWERS OF SPRING 2015!!

Vienna, VA(Zone 7a)

Nice signs of spring, Sally and Holly!

Sally, looks like you netted a really cool tree! This site says the leaves get up to 30" long and the flowers up to 12" wide! http://www.forestry.state.al.us/PDFs/100/bigleaf_magnolia.pdf

1) My purple primroses are the first to bloom.
2) Primroses and NOID daffodils; on the right, there's a clump of yellow primroses that will open soon.
3) More daffodils. I like them up there on the hill; I wish I could plant more but it's difficult to dig under the tree.

Ha ha Sally!

SSG, if you want a tree, what about a Dogwood?
I think I have Fritillarias; I planted them so long ago I can't remember what they are. They don't smell good, but I don't get a whiff of them very often so I don't mind.

Our Mahonia was just loaded with buds but that last Arctic blast froze ever one of them. I'm hoping it didn't destroy the lilac buds again like last year. Those late blast destroy buds that have started swelling.

What kind of Mahonia do you have?
The leaves of my Mahonia aquifolium shrubs got scorched this winter, but the buds seem okay.

Anne Arundel,, MD(Zone 7b)

I have Mahonia bealei, and same here, the flowers were pretty wrecked and no mild mid winter days to enjoy the lovely sweet smell

Remember there is a continuation thread already
