Re: Spring is here!

Indeed it is, Donna.
With your Polemonium, how about varigated Polygonatum (Solomon's seal)?
I had some nice surprizes, too. A Clematis montana (still in the nursery
pot) is growing! I thought I lost it to the early freeze. Got that planted
last night after work. A not so pleasant surprize is the raspberry suckers
taking over a new bed with south east exposure. Just put them there last
summer while I decided where I do want them. (Maybe with the yard waste to
recycle ; ) Guess I will spend my next day off digging & replanting. It's
the one I have concrete pavers in. [sigh] Suppose I will have to lever up
those & check underneath. However, the dark pink tree peony in that bed has
at least 4 buds.
Has anyone seen Narcissus "Waterperry"? Salmon & white color like a
miniature Salome daffodil. Plan to buy some to plant with the Salome here.
Weather is cooler, 40s with wind rain and "sun breaks". Still good to get
out in. No frost this past week.
I'm off for some well earned rest. Sleep well all
