In Bloom this Week: February 28

Some shots from around the nursery:

Viburnum tinus 'Spring Bouquet'. This is one of those plants that is so common I started to dismiss it. In reality though its a pretty nice shrub. Grows to 4-6 ft high and wide. Like most shrubs, keep it pruned a bit to avoid legginess.
Weeping Pussy Willow. These are grafted, and very cool.
Forsythia intermedia x 'Kogold' , one of the newer Monrovia introductions.

Pieris japonica: Lily of the Valley shrub. Graceful shrub for the shade; grows anywhere from 3-6 ft or more depending on the variety.

Another Monrovia hybrid: Magnolia x veitchii 'Columbus'. Pyramidal shape to 30-35 ft. Large white blossoms in early spring before leaves.
Camellia x ' Coral Delight'. This is a cross between C. japonica and C. saluenensis. This picture doesnt do it justice. We have about 5 of them in full bloom and you very nearly cannot see any foliage. (ok, I see foliage in the picture..but you know what I mean)
Euphorbia characais "Humpty Dumpty. Compact perennial to 2 1/2 feet with late winter/early spring blossoms.
I put two pictures on here because I couldnt pick one. I love the way the Hamamelis mollis 'Diane' and the Corylus avellana 'Contorta' are side by side in the nursery! They look so nice together right now.

Thats it for today......
