My favorite little Barberry is leafing out. I really like the way the deep purple foliage looks with the pure white of the Thalia Daffodils. This little guy was transplanted last fall from the fountain bed where it was getting partial sun at best to mostly full sun. According to the research I did it will produce white pendant blossoms if it gets sufficient light in the spring. I’m very addicted to small ornamental shrubs right now. This is the first year I’ve planted this Narcissus and I’m pleased with the lovely fragrance and long lasting blooms. Next year I will be looking to add more varieties of Daffodils to the garden for sure. I’ve already printed out a wishlist of the ones that caught my eye.
Soon the foliage of my Spirea will change to a bright lime green shade. Mixed with the hot pink blossoms it is striking combination come early summer. However, right now the bright yellow (almost neon) blossoms make a nice contrast for my new Muscari. This two-toned grape hyacinth has been a great new addition. I will definitely be ordering more of these next fall. I’ll be curious to see if they multiply as readily as the common grape hyacinths do in my garden.
