Spring Blooming Flowers 4-26-2016

I like how spring is unfolding here. Lots of things are at least starting to show growth and or if it has survived the winter. I had a bunch of stuff die in my front beds. See, even professionals have issues sometimes! I had a whole row of Physocarpus opulifolius ‘Jefam’ or ‘Amber Jubilee’ croak on me. Gaaa! Those were $45. even at wholesale. I have still to see on some late emerging stuff, but after another couple of weeks, the truth will be told what is making a comeback..

Hop on the wayback machine to see what I found blooming in 201320142015

    • The native species has nasty thorns and makes fruit, like a rosehip. It is a cousin of the rose. Mine are fancy-smancy bred ones with little thorns. I call these plants ‘garbage collectors’ as their open branching and thorns allow them to grab on to any garbage flying around. Once garbage is stuck in there, it can rarely escape.
