Does anyone know of a guide that will tell me what blooms when in this region ?
Just moved in? I can tell you what's blooming in my yard right now...
nepeta (it will go on all summer)
Carolina spicebush (just started opening buds today)
Still have in bloom daffodils, muscari.
Clematis montana has buds but not yet blooming--another week I'd guess
Already finished blooming:
Cherries, both fruiting and ornamental
A lot depends on the microclimate. I have several of the above spicebush, but only one is blooming (the one that gets the most sun). Others are in leaf and one still dormant.
Interesting - my spicebush also started blooming yesterday. I could smell it as soon as I got out of my car yesterday evening.
daffodils are near their end,
hybrid tulips in full bloom
Look on our FAQ page - we did that for two years in a row. Its a pretty good list.
