I like bluestar, too, though I haven't had much luck growing it on my property.

My shrubs are blooming, Fothergilla, Calycanthus and Red buckeye

Wow turttle, I can't believe your "frothy gills" are still blooming! Mine are a week past now. I'm encouraged by your buckeye, mine was only planted last fall and is too small to bloom but maybe next year. I have Calycanthus 'Athens' and it is just starting to open but hasn't released that fantastic scent yet!

Flame azalea planted last fall is starting to bloom, wow I love it! Those reds, yellows and oranges are a knockout. Hopefully it won't perish but we don't have the best conditions for it to survive. R. canescens hasn't budded out yet, I have my fingers crossed.

My flame azalea is in full bloom and the scent wafts through the whole backyard. Magnifica coral honeysuckle has the same colors and it is just starting to bloom. The cardinals have made a nest in it. Downy phlox is blooming and so is Black Chokeberry. The woodland phlox is still blooming too.

pawprint I've got a couple azalea shots to share.

This one was taken 3 weeks ago, it has been here a long time...the carpenter bees love it.what's blooming now 2014-100_2080.jpg

And these have been here, even longer{natives}! (Rhododendron canescens pink, or possibly R. Prinophyllum?)what's blooming now 2014-100_2124.jpg


Look closely at the upper right section, I think it is one of those hummingbird bugs! These plants are a great place to hang out nearby waiting for a shot of various butterflys.what's blooming now 2014-100_2123.jpg

I like these guys when they bloom they are outstanding, this pix just doesn't do them any justice. I think these may be related to the krigia biflora (two flowered cynthia), but these bloom early, and don't seem to have the bicolor about them. Little waspy bees love 'em. These also do quite well in a shady forest.what's blooming now 2014-100_2122.jpg
