My Woodland Garden – May 4th

Can you smell that?  I wait all winter to get to smell the aroma of the freshly mowed grass – not just any mowing – but the first mowing of the year!  This causes a rush of spring to my senses!  The weeding continues and the final touches are close at hand.

Gold Heart Bleeding Heart

My spring blossoming perennials abound now.  My Gold Heart Bleeding Heart is beginning to bloom,  the daffodils are finishing their show, my hosta are exploding and others are just beginning.

Zebra Stripes

I have all kinds of hosta – the greens, the blues, the golds, and just about every form of variegated hosta.  There are a few unique ones that really shine in the spring.  Three of these come out almost white in the spring.  White Feather, Zebra Stripes and Grey Ghost.  Later in the year – they revert to “normal” colors – but now highlight the hosta garden.

Brunnera

The brunnera and the bluebells offer up dainty blue flowers flowers which are a perfect blue color.  Combined with several other shade perennials these show off of each other nicely.

Orchid Frost Lamium

Along the edge of my one hosta garden, I have a planting of the ground cover Orchid Frost Lamium.  It spreads out among the hosta and creeps along.  Over the years, I have had to pull it out of a few places and it just re-directs itself onward.

Our golden juniper is sporting its new growth.  The new growth on the evergreens is always a delight in the spring.  There is just something magical when the plants all wake up in the spring and start to grow.

Sugar Tyme Crabapple

A Feast for the Eyes and the Critters Too!

Sugar Tyme Flowering Crab

Sugar Tyme Flowering Crab has long been one of my favorite flowering trees.  For twenty years, I have enjoyed the masses of beautiful white flowers that our Sugar Tyme Crab consistently produces every May.

While Sugar Tyme Crab can be best for its lovely explosion of glorious white flowers, it also is very good at resisting most of the disease and insect problems that are sometimes a problem for some of the old fashioned flowering crabs.   Leaves stay quite clean all through the growing season and by fall a heavy crop of beautiful red crabapples are starting to show themselves.

The bright red fruit of the Sugar Tyme Crab stubbornly persists on the branches all through the winter, providing excellent color in the drab winter landscape, and plenty of winter food for birds, squirrels, pheasants and deer.  We have a group of deer in our neighborhood that make daily trips to our Sugar Tyme Crab when the snow covers up other food sources.  Throughout the rest of the winter, various birds feed on the fruit that is too high for the deer to reach, and I enjoy the splash of red color that contrasts with the white of winter.

Sugar Tyme Crab certainly provides a feast for the eyes, and critters, too!

Zone 4 hardy – it will reach a mature height of 15′ tall by 20′ wide.

What’s Doing the Blooming? Old Fashioned Bleeding Heart

Old Fashioned Bleeding Heart

The bleeding hearts are pouring their hearts out right now! Graceful, arching stems are strung with pink, white or red heart shaped flowers that appear as though they are dripping. I often hear people reminisce about the bleeding hearts in their Grandmother’s or Mother’s gardens. Generations later, it’s still a classic perennial for part shade and shaded garden beds or borders. Bleeding hearts are long lived, hardy and low maintenance perennials. They can tolerate a wide range of soils provided they receive consistent moisture and are well drained. Clumps will mature to be 30-36” tall and wide, which might seem large, until you remember that summer dormancy is normal for bleeding hearts. They won’t take up that entire footprint for the whole season. This makes them excellent companion plants for summer bloomers.

Gold Heart Bleeding Heart

Newer varieties of bleeding heart include Dicentra spectabilis ‘Valentine’. These produce a deeper pink almost red blossom. ‘Gold Heart’ blooms in the classic pink but against vivid gold foliage making it really stand out in the garden.
