Back in my garden I am so happy that all of my Dasylirions made it through another winter. Who knew these plants were so tough?
This is the first of my Eucomis to peak out of the ground, and it’s multiplied! There are 2 tiny little ones in front of the larger one.
I’m still praying for the Eucomis Oakhurst, not a sign of life yet. However my 4 year old Gunnera is still alive! I had just about given up on it but there are a couple small leaves coming out of the side.
Still no green at the top though, and this is where the really big leaves come from!
The Sambucus nigra is waking up…
As is the mystery fern behind a few of my new plant purchases this spring already in the ground and growing.
Proof that my garden got a jolt from the warm sunny weather in March (so far April has been rather cool and rainy) all of the Hostas are up and starting to leaf out. First I was captivated by the purple…
But as the green leaves start to push out it’s almost too much!
This was the first Soloman’s Seal to come out of the ground. After two weeks when there were none following it I started worry. Thankfully there are now upwards of a dozen peaking out.
The Lilly of the Valley is naturalizing nicely, is naturalizing just a polite form of spreading?
The Sweet Woodruff which I said wasn’t spreading (back when I posted about ground covers) definitely is. I love it and will enjoy this development; I just hope some future gardener here doesn’t hate it like I hate the Bishops Weed that I inherited.
