March Bloom Day
|Anemone coronaria 'Marianne Blue'|
Spring is springing here in south Washington and it is an exciting time. We have had some warm temperatures lately (warmer than average) and the garden is quickly coming out of its winter slumber.
|Camellia 'Nuccio Bella Rosa' just started blooming today. I kept it covered during the recent freezes.|
Of course, the daffodils are blooming everywhere around town. I planted a few along the strip next to the road and they are not making a huge show yet, but they are blooming.
Euphorbia characieas wulfenii starting to unfurl.
|This beautiful Euphorbia was already planted here when we moved in. It is really striking.|
ballardiae Gold Collection 'Merlin' has been blooming for months now.|
|Magnolia x loebneri 'Dr. Merrill' is one of the earliest trees I planted. It is in one of the terraced beds and I don't think it is going to be too big there once it starts to expand. I should have already moved it. The question is where?|
|Spirea thunbergii 'Ogon' - I never grew this variety before but loved it in one of the tour gardens last year. They had massed it to dramatic effect.|
|Viburnum 'Spring Bouquet' is another shrub that is probably ill placed. There are two growing along the hell strip border.|
|Lily of the Valley Shrub (Pieris japonica 'Valley Frost'). This is one of three different varieties in the garden. My photos of the other two came out unfocused. This is a very popular shrub here and you see them everywhere.|
