Plants for Spring Color

Are we seeing plants bloom in March?!!!

 You better believe it.  For the first time in my memory there are actual flowers in March.  If this gets you excited about spring I thought I could offer some ideas for Spring color in the landscape.


      Crocus bloom shortly after the snow melts and offer early spring color


      Butter and Sugar Iris                   

     Iris are available in an abundance of colors  and bloom in mid-spring


          Adams Crabapple

Crabapple are a great ornamental tree option.  They too flower in spring and have fruit   

                                            that persists through the summer and into winter.

          Jane Magnolia

     Magnolias are one of the first large shrubs to flower in the spring offering large

                                            spectacular blooms in many colors.


These are just a few plants that can help brighten up your landscape early in the year.

Every time I see a plant with a word Siberica in its name, I feel myself a bit aesamhd. Why don't I have that plant? I am from Siberia, too, I must have it! Well, to be exact, we don't call my part of Russia Siberia, we call it Russian Far East, but for Americans it's all Siberia. Anyway, I think I'll get it for my garden this year. Thanks for such a beautiful image!

So I don't know the book but I did run into the author a cploue of years ago. I stopped by Newtonville Books, as I do about every five minutes, and there was a woman asking where to go for a meal. I gave some advice and then it turned out that she was giving a reading that night at the bookstore. She was Paula Kamen, the author of this book. The book she was reading from: All In My Head: An Epic Quest to Cure an Unrelenting, Totally Unreasonable, and Only Slightly Enlightening Headache.
