Apr 14, '12

Blueberries are blooming - YUM!

Brunnera macrophylla (False Forget-Me-Not) - Cheery blue flowers are great with bleeding heart.

Clematis montana - Almost ready to pop open!

Cornus florida 'Rubra' (Dogwood)

Dicentra spectabilis (Common Bleeding Heart) - This is an old favorite.

Erythronium 'Pagoda' (Dogtooth Violet) - This is a great woodland flower.  Beautiful!

Heuchera villosa seedlings (Fall Blooming Coral Bells) - Wonderful color variations.

Mahonia aquifolium (Oregon Grape Holly)

Pachysandra procumbens (Allegheny Spurge) - This is our native Pachysandra.  There are no pest or disease problems, plus wonderful mottled foliage.

Phlox subulata "Purple Beauty' (Moss Phlox) - Wonderful groundcover for full sun.

Purple Sage - This has overwintered in the garden for 3 years.  Wonderful color.

Senecio aureus (Golden Ragwort) - Sunny yellow flowers over glossy dark green foliage.  Prefers a moist site, but will tolerate average soil.

Can't forget the Strawberries.  Small fruits will be here soon.

Viola labradorica (Labrador Violet) - Our little native violet with dark purple leaves.
