I recently bought 100+ daffodil bulbs and scattered them along the curved, tilled area.
I planted an early variety, a mid-season, and a later blooming daffodil. I planted Narcissus 'Glen Cova', N. 'Osiris', N. 'Cheerfulness'.
I held out about 10 or so bulbs to plant on our side of the street near the road between the two newly planted pecan trees.
These are all just barely showing their foliage up through the ground....but give it another couple weeks. I will have quite a show!
Now, in other parts of the garden many of my spring bloomers are putting on a show. Here is the Pieris japonica 'Cavatine'.
This bloom is very similar to the Pieris but it is one of the native Vaccinium along the shore line.
One of the bulbs I brought with me from Virginia and planted last fall is N. 'Cum Laude'. I love the peachy color.
'Cum Laude' is planted near of my 'Jane' magnolias. A great combination that bloom at the same time.
This is one of the two seedling Red Buckeyes, Aesculus pavia, I brought with me. They both made it through the winter and are putting forth leaves!!! Right now they both are only about 8 inches tall. I have faith they will continue to grow and thrive.
Another Virginia transplant was a pot full of N. 'Tete-a-tete'. These little ones are so sweet.
There are a mixture of Hyacinths planted, all starting to show their buds. I planted these really late, hope I get a nice showing.
I try to repeat colors in my landscape. Planted next to the Acer palmatum 'Sango Kaku' it a Narcissus 'Tahiti' that has a reddish orange/ yellow color combination. As you can see 'Tahiti' isn't open yet....but it is getting there!
The Coral Bark Maple is opening nicely.
Aren't these colors wonderful??
And finally, more daffodils planted in between the Deutzia have come up and will be blooming soon. Theses are N. 'Gold Medal'. Looking forward to seeing these new (to me) varieties.
Happy Spring to one and all. What's blooming in your neighborhood?
