My lyreleaf sage and narrowleaf blue-eyed grass is blooming.

Linrose, I am jealous of your silverbells

The native azaleas (R. canescens) around here are in all their glory. I've got some seeds of theirs just now germinating. I need to stop by and get some photos of the blooms one day soon. Ahhh, the possibilities and potentials of spring!

Hi WW,
Yes, I think it is! You have quite a beauty there. There is one shrub growing right near my house that at along the edge of a regularly flooded ditch. It is just loaded with blooms right now. It's dangerous driving but it everyday because it distracts me from keeping my car on the road

pawprint stop & smell the R. canescens

hey kchd, thanks for adding me to your friends list.

A funny thing happened last fall to these R. canescens, as you may be aware there was a vast drought last year, and my area was included in it~~ well these R. canescens seeded out, and I remember collecting the seeds...and guess what. They began flowering again last fall! First time I've seen them do that, I would guess it was because of the weather, which turned warm instead of cold and the plants thought it was spring time.

I am curious is there anything special to make the seeds viable for this type plant? I just collected the seed and then threw em down the hill side (hoping to get them to grow on hill side on day, that is part of my wildlife gardening)...OR did I just waste a bunch of seed? (I do the same thing with beautyberry, spicebush, & wild geranium seed). I tried some beautyberry seed overwintered in a pot full of dirt outside, but nothing has come up yet.

I tried R. canescens here but it died. I'm willing to try again if I can find the right spot for it. It's so beautiful!

Today I found black cherry blooming, blue-eyed grass, prairie phlox, mockernut hickory and rose verbena.
