Garden bloggers' bloom day March 2014

Better late than never edition.

When we hit single digit temperatures in December my Daphne odora 'Aureomarginata' was badly burned and lost almost every single leaf. It produced buds where the leaves dropped off. I am a HUGE fan of this. More blooms? Go ahead and lose your leaves every winter, girl.

My Daphne odora 'Mae Jima' bloomed for the first time, too!

Arctostaphylos bakeri 'Louis Edmonds'

Pieris japonica

The hellebores are still going.

Euphorbia 'Blackbird'

Euphobia myrsinites

After this we really get rolling. April is one my very favorite months in the garden! Happy bloom day, a little bit late! Thanks for hosting, Carol!


  1. Yes! I am so ready to get rolling! I need to find some Euphorbia Blackbird.

  2. One of the Blackbird starts I planted in December (unsurprisingly) didn't make it through the freeze and the snow. But the established one sailed right through, even as it still gets peed on every day. I'm a convert!

  3. This is such an exciting time in the garden! everything is so full of promise, the moist ground is easy to dig plants out of, something new is popping into bloom every day...Happy GBBD, Heather!

  4. i can just imagine how splendid the scent of the Mae jima must be!

  5. On a walk today I saw a Daphne odora doing that same thing, it was extra amazing.

  6. I planted it in April of 2012 and this is the first time it bloomed. So yours could bloom next year?
