You can find out what's blooming around the world in March if you visit May Dreams Garden for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day which is the 15th of each month. Take a look and see what can be added to your flower parade.
|Wine Helleborus x hybridus|
The hellebores have been blooming since February and the flowers will last for many months.
|Helebore x hybridus|
Many gardeners are complaining of their losses this year due to the harsh winter; but, the hellebores have been unaffected and are flourishing.
|White Helleborus x hybridus|
For some reason, I favor the white ones.
|Helleborus x hybridus|
|Narcissus 'Tete a Tete'|
Short in stature but color intense, mini Narcissus 'Tete a Tete' can command your attention. Tete a tete means head to head and there are two flowers per stem seemingly in a conversation. This fact may help identify them if they get lost among other minis.
A mulch of leaves remains in the beds until April when it will be removed and added to the compost bin.
Unlike other narcissus, jonquils have tubular rather than flattened foliage.
You can always count on forsythia for a big splash of color.
|Lycoris squamigera/Naked Ladies|
Lycoris adds a lot of green to the garden as early as February. They will soon be covered with daylilies. Then after the daylilies bloom like a big surprise out will pop the naked ladies.
|Texas Red Flowering Quince|
For color as intense as any azalea but earlier, plant quince.
The plants have started growing in the pond but, the fishes are the main attraction now.
Fruit trees are the showiest elements of the early spring garden.
