Even I was surprised to find a Gerbera Daisy blooming.
Gerberas are one of the longest lasting plants I grow.
If the crowns are kept from getting covered with soil, they go on forever.
LantanaWhen I first went out this morning, two American Painted Ladies were nectaring on Lantana montevidensis. Of course when I went back with a camera, they hid. Later I saw a huge yellow Sulphur hanging around the pansies outsdie the greenhouse.
Loropetalum, two different: one has dark leaves and fuchsia fringes, the other has green leaves and pink fringes. These were seedlings from Miss Billie Harvey. There is also a white, just starting to open its fringes.
White Azaleas, bought as Delaware Valley White. They always
start opening first time we have warm days after Christmas.
The real azalea show is in late March.
Paperwhite Narcissus Just behind them are Graptopetalum paraguayense
and Sedum acre growing among and on stones .
Thanks fo Carol of May Dreams Gardens for hosting Bloom Day this January.
