Planting for NEXT Memorial Day...
Seems like 7 years ago, I could count on Lilacs and tulips for cemetery decorating. This weekend, the lilacs and tulips were long gone; all I had were iris, some hydrangeas, some bleeding hearts and highbush cranberry foliage. It was pretty, but I obviously need to plant so I'll have some volume in the future.
What did anyone else have? I saw lots of peonies at the cemetery, over by Des Moines. I live near Cedar Rapids and my tree peony and single bush have neither one done anything yet, but the possibility exists that I'm just peony-challenged.
