Are we in for another slow spring? I hope so. Blooms last so much longer. The witch hazel at Green Spring are still going strong as is the 'Arnold Promise' in my garden.
Below the Magnolia stellata is starting to open up. Will it make it all the way without getting zapped by a freeze? Too often magnolias get nipped by frost in this area, looking like dirty hanker chiefs draped in the trees.
Cornus mas (Cornelian cherry), I assume, is blooming near the historic house.
And in the greenhouse, some other worldly cactus and agaves
I'm not sure which witch hazel this is, but it's still looking good. Green Spring has the designated 'national' collection so there is quite an array.
