Apricot blossoms
A hardy, deciduous, early flowering tree which will produce delicious Apricots late summer.
As the blossoms appear early in the year, they might need protection from frost.
Plant in a sheltered sunny spot.

Forsythia
A bright yellow shrub.
Can be a little garish, but nice to see some color after the long dark winter month. The blossoms appear before the leaves.
Easy to grow. Best planted in sun. 


Mahonia japonica
This lovely evergreen shrub is best grown in semi-shade.  Flowers start to develop in late October and  bloom till March or April.
Flowers in primrose-yellow develop in the center of each leave rosette.  Leaves are dark green, shiny and  holly shaped, but larger.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

Lungwort Pulmonarioides
A lovely plant with its blue and pink blossoms and easy  to grow.  They look beautiful in a woodland setting and equally lovely  in a  herbaceous border.
When finished flowering the grayish green spotted leaves form a ground cover.

Euphorbia
This one is the common  variety of  Euohorbias. They bloom for a very long time and grow well in sun or shade. Euphorbias look especially good with Alliums.

Periwinkle
A very good evergreen ground cover plant.
Dark green glossy foliage and pretty blue flowers in early spring.

Epimedium
A very tough and easy to grow plant. Leaves stay on all the time turning to copper in winter with new green shoots appearing through the old foliage in spring.
The delicate yellow flowers appear early March. Epimedium are best grown in sun or halve shade.
