Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day
Another great idea from Carol, and I'm late as usual, but here's my list of what was in bloom on the 15th of February.
- Florist's azalea. I've had this plant for 15 years. Several of those 15 years it spent outdoors in the ground, until I read that florist's azaleas are not hardy in DC. Well, it didn't die, but it didn't really grow either. So for the last several years, it's been captive in a pot - summering outdoors and wintering in the basement/dining room/cold frame.
- Crocus ancyrensis 'Golden Bunch'. I assume this was flowering under the slush. It was pushing up new flowers just before.
- Hellebore 'Pine Knot Strain'. These have been blooming non-stop since January, although they looked awfully sad when the cold weather set in at the end of January.
- Buds: narcissus - definitely; rosemary - were there but may have frozen.
