Forget me nots came into my garden by themselves and grow around. Some find them weedy but who can resist those sweet little blue flowers?
NOID tree peony.
One of a few different Ceanothus.
Rosa sericea ssp. omeiensis f. pteracantha
A hardy geranium.
Dianthus 'Rainbow Loveliness'
These nice orange Darwins are making a repeat performance this year.
Tulips and Euphorbia 'Fireglow'
Pinky purple impulse buy tulips put in this year.
Hey, a rose already!
A trio of weedy thugs: our native dicentra, scilla hispanica, and lunaria annua. At least the latter is easy to pull and provides interest again in the fall.
Viburnum × bodnantense ‘Dawn’ has been blooming since November or December. It'll finish soon.
The last of the mid-season daffodils.
Epimedium wushanense. Lots of other epimedium are also blooming.
The first camellia japonica of spring is continuing to put out blooms.
It's been joined by many others. Just a couple here.
Bleeding Heart (dicentra) has a fancy new botanical name but I'm too lazy to look up the spelling.
The undersides of the leaves of Rhododendron 'Wine and Roses' are an incredible wine color. Mine is planted in an elevated pot so I can appreciate it by walking under the plant. The flowers are nice.
Crinodendron hookerianum buds growing larger.
Rhododendron 'President Roosavelt'
Some magnolia or other
Choisya ternata 'Sundance'
Always the first fuchsia to start blooming, this nearly white one blooms well into autumn and is now large enough to create a lovely arch above the path to the bamboo grove.
