some woody bloomers for the end of March
Lonicera sempervirens This is the native honeysuckle… A vine with manners!
Aesculus pavia The yellow is an interesting contrast with the red… and apparently crosses…
The buckeye bush must be the all-time easy shrub to grow from seed, the only probs that I’ve run into, are that buckeye comes up very early, like January… a cold spell can kill the seedlings… it’s often simplest to start the seeds indoors and set the seedlings out after it warms up.
Calycanthus floridus Sweet shrub has cool blooms, remains small, but tends to run like mint with those stolons…
The native azaleas have been very unhappy in the constant droughts we’ve been having year after year… these two look pretty nice together though.
