It's that time of year when everything's starting to pop!

The Clematis (name forgotten) has been blooming next to a Knockout rose for several days now. It usually climbs the small trellis there for it but this year decided not to. I just noticed it yesterday.



And the first Asiatic lily opened yesterday. Again, the name forgotten.



The first 'Percy Wiseman' Rhodie opened fully yesterday too.



There should be daylilies soon, probably 'Stella D'Oro' as she's usually the first one out of the gate.

Default Rhodys v. azaleas

Rhododendrons won't grow in my area. Azaleas are all over the place. They are at their peak in early March.

If any grow in my part of Georgia they've been planted by homeowners but they're found out and about on their own in north Georgia up towards the Smokies.

This 'Little Gem Magnolia' has started to bloom and is adding a really sweet scent to the air when the wind blows right. It's a dwarf but that's only in relation to a full sized Magnolia. This one can get to 30' where a standard Magnolia grandiflora is a lot taller. Smaller leaves on this one too.

Your Magnolia is a lovely tree. I would love to be able to grow one here.

~ Enjoy

Default Gold Star Esperanza

This was a small tree until The Two Great Freezes of 2017 and it died back to the ground. Now it's coming back...a hummingbird favorite. The neighbor across the street has a Magnolia. Her's is just starting to bloom. The blooms smell faintly of lemons to me.
