Meanwhile, Hyacinths and Daffodils are on their own schedule. The outdoor Hyacinths are ahead of the forced bulbs in the greenhouse. Daffodils are blooming in faster sequence than usual.
Here are today's beauties, Hyacinths first:
I tend to forget which pinks are which: China Pink, Pink Pearl and Fondant are all varieties I've planted in previous years.
The blues are slow to emerge this year.
This little staggered bunch above were forced year before
last and planted out following bloom.
On to the daffodils:
Sweet little jonquillas
This is my hands down favorite double. Tahiti.
It has a good form, does not flop like some and the
fragrance is incredibly spicy.
You cannot have too many Sweetness jonquillas.
If all that yellow is too much for you, there are other colors in daffodils. I didn't even make pics of Ice Follies, if you are also not a fan of orange. Pink Charm has not yet broken through the ground.
Tete a Tete with some February Gold in the distance.
The exciting thing about daffodils is that there are cultivars
that have not even sent up a leaf yet. Long season.
Daffodils can take some amount of freezes. Too much heat will cause blasting. I saw two buds that blasted in last week's warm spell.
What is the story on Daffodils at your place? I know that many places they're under snow. Only 35 days to Spring, they'll be along.
