A smattering and quickly assembled collection of plants blooming in my garden today as a contribution to the April 2015 Garden Blogger's Bloom Day. Spring has sprung in Portland, Oregon; blooms and luscious emerging foliage are plentiful. I have much more in bloom than what I'm picturing here!
Emerging foliage of Epimedium wushanense is bronze; providing vivid backdrop for creamy flowers.
Clematis collection is starting to bloom. Always seem to be able to find room for one (or two, or three, or ...) more more each year. Love 'em! At the top is Clematis 'Asao', in the middle is C. 'John Warren' and then C. 'Guernsey Cream'. Others are in bloom or coming in bloom soon!
I was turned on to this new-to-me species rhodie by Lori at Garden Fever; Rhododendron diversipilosum 'Milky Way'.
Love the fresh and sweet primulas; they won't last long but they're lovely while here. This is Primula sieboldii 'Lacy Lady'.
Hellebores are fading but still attractive. This is Helleborus 'Hot Flash'.
That sums up my small sampling for today. I'm regularly posting Instagram photos of what's blooming and beautiful in my garden and what I see out and about. I hope you'll come on over and say hello there as well: bloomtowngardens
Happy spring to you!
