Checking the garden almost daily now.
Just for the fun of it.
Just for the hope of spring.
But don't get too excited.
We had snow flurries this morning.
A few more daffodils in bloom.
In the shade garden one of the bleeding hearts is on its way up. Perhaps it is lobbying to NOT be replaced this year?
One of the Ostrich ferns is also showing. I hope they do better this year.
Last year I transplanted some of our Desert Candles (Eremurus robustus) along with some white daylilies. I've been keeping an eye out for them. Well, the desert candles are coming up alright.
But do you think I planted any under our back deck???
No. I did not. I think I'm having the same problem as Garden Girl. I guess I'll try her solution and transplant them along with a thick layer of mulch. Hope that will help.
And here is why we love desert candles so much.
Aren't they gorgeous?
A few facts: They flower in late spring; June around here. Plants are about 30-70 inches tall. Hardy to zone 5 with mulch. Full sunlight. Plant their tuberous roots in the fall.
