Spotted wintergreen, just about to open buds, all through my woods this year, it must like the wet, cool spring.

How nice turttle, I too am seeing a vast difference this year in the woods, as compared with last. Those spotted wintergreen...is there a fragrance of wintergreen associated with this plant?~~just curious.

I like the exotic, especially the woodland forbes it seems, I never have seen some of the things WG members have posted in this thread, but I'm taking notes and really appreciate all the sharing people here do so well.

Yay hava! Those apple blossoms sure are pretty!

Today oakleaf hydrangea and winterberry are blooming. Each of those tiny flowers on the winterberry will become a bright red berry! I threw in a couple of gratuitous penstemon photos because they are just so gosh darn nice right now!

I guess I haven't been paying too much attention to what's blooming around me but when I walked outside a coupla minutes ago... I noticed all of my Solomon's Seal plants were blooming. They sure are an elegant native plant.

Hostas, Solomon seal and all sorts of shade lovers do quite well in the sun if you make sure they don't bake and dry out.
I put plants where I want them. You can tell if they don't adjust accordingly. Like my Yucca. It was planted in the shade...It struggled to survive there for three years. It was time to move it out and make it happy.....In the sun.

Viburnum nudum and bracteatum are blooming now. Also the wonderful Louisiana iris, from Iris brevicaulis 'Black Gamecock'. This iris species is native in the central states from the Gulf right up into Ontario! I like that it blooms later than other iris, usually starting in June, and true to that it started on June 1st.

I just took another little walk around and found my butterflyweed is blooming. This is the only one that took in the prairie bed after several tries. The naturally occuring ones in the field have not yet bloomed. Also yarrow, weed, native, non-native whatever it is. There's always been a little clump living here.
