No, wait! Pentas and Zinnias and Gladioli will brighten the summer garden. What about Rose Campion and Purple Coneflower and Crape Myrtles? We're just starting the season of Fuchsia Flowers. Seeds and bulbs and roots underground are getting ready to make a hot pink spring and summer, including the Stargazer lilies I just planted despite the cold.
Here is what is blooming now:
Hyacinths, unknown cultivar opening inside.
Those in the ground have tightly closed buds against the cold wind.
Taiwan cherries. Birds will eat the fruit as soon as they form.
Loropetalum fringes last until after azaleas bloom.
I give the flowers called Fuchsias long, loving looks but they are unhappy in this climate.
What Fuchsia colored flowers do you anticipate when the weather improves?
