What’s Beautiful Now: Daffodils & Cherries Galore

Posted in Around the Garden on April 18 2017, by Matt Newman

Photo of Prunus KanzanSpring’s beauty is settling into its groove this week, with strong showings from both our cherry trees and our daffodils. They should reach peak color soon, meaning this week and into the weekend will offer a great opportunity to see these collections in rare form!

Elsewhere in the garden, such as the Rock Garden and Home Gardening Center, early tulips are beginning to make an appearance, while the magnolia collection is now blooming and fragrant.

See what’s happening below!

Perennial of the Week: Erythronium americanum – trout-lily

Picture 2 of 6

Erythronium americanum has ephemeral mottled leaves that grow close to the ground. A single, yellow, lily-like flower nods gracefully over the foliage. Plants grow quickly from corms and can form large colonies over time. E. americanum excels in shaded perennial gardens, woodland gardens, and along stream banks. You can find this lovely specimen all over the Azalea Garden and Thain Family Forest.
