I am always pleased when I can photograph the happy yellow blooms of Edgeworthia chrysantha 'Nanjing Gold' against a equally happy blue sky. They belong together.
Then there's Edgeworthia chrysantha ‘Akebono’—while it lacks the fragrance punch that 'Nanjing Gold' has, it makes up for it with that powerful red/orange pop.
Such a vivid color, I need to remember to prune a few branches and bring them indoors.
How many bloomdays in a row now have a shared Euphorbia amygdaloides var. Robbiae? I think this might be the last one.
Euphorbia rigida is also nearing it's full bloom stage.
Soon the centers will start to turn orange.
Daphne x houtteana
Arctostaphylos densiflora ‘Harmony’, definitely a dense bloomer!
The newest hellebores added to my collection (Helleborus ’Ice n Roses Merlot’ and Helleborus 'Rio Carnival') are still blooming their hearts out.
I've noticed (via our Ring camera) an Amazon delivery person who stops to admire them when she drops off deliveries (I don't know how my husband kept himself clothed before Amazon). I'm on a mission to catch her the next time she stops by and offer a cut stem or one of the plants if she lives somewhere she can grow it outdoors. We must encourage the young plant lovers!
Helleborus x ballardiae Pink Frost
For the longest time I didn't plant Asarum maximum 'Ling Ling' in the ground, certain their leaves and flowers would be riddled with slug damage. Turns out I was right. Still, those slightly spooky blooms manage to work their spell on me.
Pachysandra axillaris 'Windcliff Fragrant'
Azara microphylla; lately I'm reading more folks who compare the fragrance of those small flowers to vanilla or cloves, I still get chocolate, loud and clear, chocolate.
My final two March blooms are in the basement, first a rhipsalis. I'm sure I could tell you which one if I searched thru my records, but it's going to have to produce more than one small flower for me to bother to do that.
A surprise! An off-season bloom from one of my NOID epiphyllum. Such a beautiful flower I'll take it whenever it wants to show up. What's blooming in your garden this March?
