I am still adjusting to our new zone 7 where in spite of cool, or even cold weather, plants emerge in February from the ground.
So much has appeared already! I’ll share with you some of the early starters from February…
Corydalis Chocolate Star
Clematis began to rise…. (This one is Saphyra Indigo)
Witchhazels Diane and Pallida are in bloom
Iris reticulata brave the rain…
More Hellebores show up
This is Asarum Panda. I need to peek underneath to check for blooms!
Blue Hepatica surface at this time too. They are tiny and delicate so far…
Last year I planted three pale yellow Corylopsis shrubs. They are still small but doing very well.
The drumstick primulas are also doing well this year.
In front of the house the free daffodils given to me last fall are blooming in March.
Nearby the Ribes is about to bloom.
Corydalis Chocolate Star is now showing off its pale lavender flowers.
This Corydalis Blue Heron is also blooming now.
Rhubarb is surfacing!
The Cornus Mas that was planted last year is blooming nicely.
Close by, the Meconopsis Sheldonii are growing and I am impatient to see their blooms. Keeping my fingers crossed!
I’ll try to add to this as time permits.
