Although the snow and ice persist in the shady areas, in a few containers the early spring flowering species are up and ready to go!
The flowering race is going to be a tight one this year. The contenders are: Corydalis solida – listed as the favourite, followed shortly by Dicentra cuccularia and an unexpected outsider – Hepatica nobilis var. japonica.
Ladies and Gentlemen: there is still time to place your bets! A few cold days with possible flurries are in the forecast before the finish line. Choose your favourite and place your wagers.
