How are your perennials?

What do you have coming up? What's bloomed?

I've got day lillies that are about 6", tiger lillies that are just barely out of the ground, shoots of snow on the mountian, daffodils that will bloom any day, and my beloved peonies are about 2"-3" out.

My magnoila tree has flowers too but won't be blooming for a week or two.

  • I'm going out today to get the ground ready for planting, but it's still to soon for most things here. I did have some tulips coming up, but they froze to death... :(

  • Hostas are poppin up, clematis is out and one has a bud already! (only about 6" in stem) the day lilies, spirella (sp?) butterfly bush is poppin, and my obedient plant too. Oh and I forgot about my "paper whites" that were in a large pot last fall and they are coming up! My daff have already bloomed and I see thru my window today my tulips are opening!

    Oh lets not forget the weeds too have sprouted! :)

  • My daffodils are blooming, my verbena is just starting, and then I have a ground cover plant that was here when I moved in that is blooming (I don't know what it is, I've been meaning to take it up to the nursery - it's beautiful!)

  • My asparagus are just starting to come up & my fern is just starting to put out some fronds, and my oregano plant is beginning to green up, but that's it. Other than the trees, everything else is still dormant.

  • My hostas are all starting to shoot up out of the ground. My lilac bush is also budding like there is not tomorrow. My daffodils & tulips have buds but have not done anything as of yet. My crocus' have already bloomed and are done.
