What's Blooming on Easter Sunday?

Well even though we got about 3” of snow last Sunday, it melted within a day and all looks well out in the garden. I’ll have to wait until the hostas come up a bit more but I’m hoping there was no damage . Look below for a few more things blooming today…

Bloodroot  (Sanguinaria canadensis). One of my favorites in the spring. These got moved around last year with our patio construction, so I wasn’t sure where to find them.  The blooms don’t last very long at all but they’re so beautiful.

Squill  (Scilla siberica).  A tiny blue flower with a huge impact when grown in mass.  We see fields of squill in our neighborhood this time of year.

Giant Butterbur  (Petasites japonicus giganteus). This is a very unusual plant and I’ll be sure to post photos when it leafs out. The leaves are about 2-3’ wide and it spreads rapidly. Loves a shady damp place.

More hellebores (also called Lenten rose).  I love these beauties and they will keep on blooming for a few weeks!

Marsh Marigold  (Caltha palustris).  These aren’t quite blooming yet but they’re so interesting at all stages.
