Week of April 18

The weather we experienced this past winter and early spring brought daffodils, tulips and other plants into flower much earlier than expected.

Large colonies of the sweet wildflower, Claytonia virginica, "spring beauties" in the Front Allée:

Helleborus foetidus 'Red Silver'
These hellebores formed buds and new leaves during the unseasonably warm weather in January and that early growth was damaged when "proper" winter weather arrived in February, hence the desiccated brown bud in this photo. All of this luxurious new foliage, buds and flowers are testament to how hardy this hellebore is!

Liz Johnson, Greenwood Gardens' Executive Director, captured this photo of a beautiful, fall-flowering crocus. It can be found in the east end of the Reflecting Pool Garden, near the Austrian pine. Head of Horticulture, Sonia Uyterhoeven reports, "We have both Crocus speciosus and cultivar 'Conqueror' growing in that area. The cultivar is an inch or so taller than the species."
