A favorite vignette with Enkianthus c. ‘Sikokianus’ and Acer palmatum ‘Chishio Improved’
It’s been a while since we’ve had a cool, moist (wet…maybe really wet) lengthy spring. Most years, April gives us a wintry mix; we get 2 weeks of spring in May, and then summer-like weather hits us by Memorial Day and we soon start praying for rain. Not this year. The flowering trees and shrubs have been putting on a show unlike any other year in recent memory. Here are a few joyful images from the past 6 weeks.
Arisaema fargesii foliage emerging
Glaucidium palmatum, the lovely wood poppy bloomed for us for the first time!
Art imitating Life
Clematis recta ‘Lime Close’ growing up through Kolwitzia
Leucosceptrum ‘Gold Angel’ effectively disguising Allium foliage!!!!
Kolwitzia ‘Dreamcatcher’, aka Beautybush’
Epimedium ‘Domino’ has continued to throw off flowers since late April, and here it is mid June!
Right now the variegated Cornus kousa ‘Wolf Eyes’ is stunning with thousands of 3-4″ flowers.
What plants totally blew you away with their beauty this spring?
