|Lenten rose, Helleborus orientalis, comes in a plethora of beautiful colors and patterns.|
We have had some beautiful spring weather! And also some more snow. That is spring here in Pennsylvania, with its immoderate temperature swings and hour by hour changes. But then much of the interior US is like that. Only the coastal areas benefit from the moderating effect of the ocean.
And yet, we can still have beautiful flowers that hold up to these extremes and come out on the mild days. Here are a few beauties I can recommend!
|Pieris japonica, a beautiful shrub for part sun/shade, which is blooming its heart out here for the early pollinators.|
|While this is a blue flowering version, Pulmonaria offers many flower colors and also wonderful patterned foliage, this one with white spots.|
|Star of Bethlehem, Ornthogalum balansae, just coming out in the Birch Walk grass.|
Thanks for stopping by!
