Plants I'm Growing: Spring in the Garden (March 22, 2013)

A lot going on in the garden now. Daffodils are blooming. Candytuft is now in full bloom, along with creeping phlox. The dwarf peach and nectarine trees are in full bloom as well. Rosemary of all sorts is awash with blue, as are most of the Ceanothus varieties we have. Yesterday the "Snow Fountain" weeping cherry started to bloom and Michelia yunnanensis (pictured), a magnolia relative native to East Asia (and one of my favorite plants in the whole garden) started to bloom on March 20. The first of its cinnamon-sheathed buds opened on March 29 last year (2012), so this is a bit early. It bloomed on March 29 also in 2011. It bloomed on Aril 1 in 2009, but on March 22 in 2010.
