Bloomday for February 2022
Things are finally settling down at the office and I managed to snap a few shots of the scant blooms in my garden this month. I have so many Hellebores blooming I decided to skip them over and take some extra time to get better photos and give them their own post--I'm offering a token image since it wouldn't be a February Bloomday post without at least one.
Acacia baileyana purpurea . I liberated this from a container in 2020 and it has rewarded me by doubling in size and blooming profusely. This is one of my favorite plants -the blooms are not the only attraction . Gotta love that foliage. I don't have room for many trees in my small garden but this one is a manageable size and some concrete removal opened a spot where it can grow to it's full height.
This is Spirea ogon. I get no fall color in my zone which is unfortunate, and it is in fact evergreen here. I had a few blooms show up in November and I was afraid that was going to negate a spring bloom , but here it is covered in those delicate little white flowers.
Last up is Leucodendron 'Wilsons Wonder'. This shrub will have to be moved -but where is the question. A decision will be made in the next few months, and might involve hiring out removal of a couple of shrubs that are too large and established for me to handle on my own.
That's the limit of my offerings this month. Thanks to our hostess Carol at May Dreams Gardens as always and be sure to drop in there for a sampling garden bloggers blooms from coast to coast.
