You must have a heat lamp on them! Mine are nowhere near blooming.

Another clump is showing yellow in different area. No heat lamp up here. I have lots of other just coming up/ The ones blooming are some of the older types.

Ain't nuthin' 'round here even thinkin' 'bout bloomin'! This is the second-coldest sustained Winter weather I've witnessed since I started gardening 16 years ago. I even have a space heater running in the basement most nights, and am still losing my stored semi-tropicals left & right. Grrrr!!!!

Nelson, Nearly all my plants in my RedNeck Sunroom is dead. Some of my cacti in my new garden didn't make it. Nearly all agave is dead or near dead. I don't know about my new elep. ears , gingers, banana trees.
I don;t know why, but they are blooming.

I saw daffodils 2-3" high at the Hsv Botanical Garden (and tulips!) two weeks ago; yesterday I saw them poking up in my yard. It'll be a while yet before blooming here.

I checked mine this afternoon - no buds on any of them, though some of them show blanching on the leaf tips, apparently due to the extreme cold. I don't think it will really affect them, though it was just an eighth of an inch or so.

I finally got my first daffodil blooms today! And a number o others are in bud. On a sourer note, a number of pots of them that I planted last November (just after getting them from Brent and Becky's) look like they will not bloom this year; I think the rough winter has knocked them for a loop. The leaves of the petticoat daffodils look really zapped by the single digits, they wee up before New Year's so they got hit hard by the Polar Vortex.

I also saw my first Muscari bloom today.

some of mine have completed blooming, but I would say I have over 50 clomps still blooming. It is not just me they are blooming all over this area.
