Happy Easter Saturday! There is no doubt that the yellow daffodils and primroses are now in full swing but a quick tour of the garden shows that there are also some interesting shades of pink that are looking good. Here are my Six on Saturday for 31 March from Warwickshire.
One: Chionodoxa forbesii ‘Giant Pink’ (which is actually much pinker than the photo suggests)
Two: Viburnum bonariensis (which has been flowering its heart out all winter to provide a dusky perfume across the winter garden)
Three: Hyacinth (just emerging and starting to create the fragrant patio garden)
Four: Helleborus orientalis (these have been flowering now for sometime and are wonderful at this time of year)
Five: Bergenia cordifolia (a very common plant but one that provides such dramatic lush foliage throughout the year with its large elephant ears)
Six: Flowering cherry (providing such a rich source of nectar for the bees at this time of year)
