April Bloom Day
|Chinese Wisteria (Wisteria sinensis alba), Spirea 'Vanhoutte', Rose 'Lady Banks'|
April is a riot of blooms! I think gardeners should get the entire month of April off from work because there is just too much work to do and too many plants to behold. I can't keep up with this madness!
|Solomon's Seal (Polygonatum commutatum)|
|One of my favorite shrubs, Easter Rose (Kerria japonica). This is the double variety.|
|I also have the single variety (below). The shrub itself though is
rather puny as compared to the double variety, which is quite vigorous.|
|Euphorbia 'Despina' next to a tree peony.|
|Chinese Witch Hazel (Loropetalum chinense)|
|Jacob's Ladder (Polemonium reptans)|
|Virginia Bluebells (Mertensia virginica)|
|Carolina Jessamine (Gelsemium sempervirens)|
|Azalea 'Koromo Shikibu' |
I discovered this azalea in Pam Harper's book "Time Tested Plants". I finally located a plant on E-bay!
|Chinese Snowball (Viburnum macrocephalum)|
|Money Plant( Lunaria annua)|
And I leave you with another photo of Rose 'Lady Banks.
