Re: was Northern Blooms now Northern vs. Southern Blooms

Hello Daryl
Your mention of Lonicera fragrantissima is about the 3rd or 4th time the name has come up of late. What can you tell be about this one? Personal experience over how long a period of time? Working on my real winter bloomers for the garden.... again
If you are not growing the Helleborus foetidus you are missing a good bet. In bud since mid December, some are opening now. Went untouched by our snow and cold snap. Among the best of the best in the foliage department. Long narrow serrated leaves on stalks about 2 feet in height ... sometimes more. About that or a bit more in width. Blooms are green bells sometimes rimed in bronze. Winter foliage is almost olive-black with a sheen and the blooms stalk is bright yellow-green. Cool!

Other bloomers are some Hamamelis, Chimonanthus praecox, Osmanthus fragrans
and Lonicera fragrantissima. Rosa mutabilis had some buds and blooms before
it was 12 degrees just before Christmas. Nothing now.
