Last year on February Bloom Day, I had violas. This year I failed to plan and plant. Year before last, camellias and deciduous magnolias were in bloom by mid-February along with some hyacinths. They're late this year. All have buds but no open blossoms yet. We do have loropetalum and Taiwan cherries.
Paperwhite narcissus are dazzling now.
To the right of these are foliage of Oxblood lilies whose blossoms appear in late summer.
