Lovely! It's that time of year when there's something new to look forward to every day but I share your apprehension that rising temperatures may bring an end to the show all too soon. Erythroniums and Hepaticas are on my long list of plants I admire but can't grow in my climate.


I share your joy/concern. I can't believe how many things are emerging and blooming and fading earlier than normal. With that said, the next 10 days look a little cooler, so that will help to hold some of the blooms. I usually don't wish for cooler weather, but this time of year is the long as it isn't cold. That first Hellebore is amazing. I haven't noticed my trout lilies coming up. Hmmm. They are new to the garden, so maybe it's just a matter of time.

Beautiful spring flowers, Linda. I have a similar hellebore from Pine Knot Farms picked up during a hellebore festival a few years back. Yours has a deeper color on the outside. Lovely. I admire the Hepaticas. I've never tried to grow them but seeing yours I am inspired to try them. Have a great week.

KRIS — You are so right. Yesterday's high was 81 and the Hepaticas are dropping their flowers.

BETH — It seems like it may have taken a couple of years before I saw the Trout Lilies. Plus they are hard to see with that mottled foliage amidst all the fallen leaves.

SUSIE — For the most part, I have planted Hepaticas that were not too pricey. Once you start looking at them you will discover they are like snowdrops with a whole lot of fancy and very expensive plants.

I'm so glad you're experiencing warmth and spring beauty! Even if it will speed by...

The garden was a little shocked when after all that unseasonable warm weather we had snow here yesterday! still the flowers picked themselves up and are coping with our strange spring. I love that Hellebore, it is so different.

Hepatica envy. I have tried and failed!

They are all delightful. I really like that hellebore flower. Same thing here but alternating with cooler temps. One or two nights in the high 20s really did some damage - too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry. I guess we just get to enjoy the variety of weather that Mother Nature brings and the results that show up in our gardens.

Lovely Trout Lily, as are your Hepaticas, Linda - yet another wildflower I want to plant in my shade garden. One day!
