It’s a pleasant 50 degrees and overcast at Entwined Gardens – Zone 7b – Wake Forest, NC.
Camellia sasanqua ‘Yuletide’ which has been blooming for 3 months!
Daphne odora ‘Aureo-marginata’ – Has been showing color for six weeks… Oh the anticipation!
Highlights of the Helleborus show:
Hellebores – what’s not to like – reminder to cut back some leaves for a better show!
Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Jelena’ – Copper beauty
Leucothoe fontanesiana ‘Girard’s Rainbow” lights up the shade garden.
Technically not the bloom -but the pink bracts against the variegated foliage couldn’t resist!
Loropetalum chinense var. rubrum ‘Ruby’
Interesting only blooming on the East side of the hedge, an esplosion of color!
Ophiopogon japonicus ‘Nana’ – Dwarf Mondo grass
The blue seed baubles of seeds delight me… I collect and scatter them to enlarge the patch!
Down by the lake – Narcissus ‘Rijnveld’s Early Sensation’
Osmanthus fragrans – Fragrant Tea Olive
Such diminutive blooms permeate the Woodland Garden.
Prunus mume ‘Kobai’ – delicious scent with a hint of cinnamon.
Rosmarinus officinalis ‘Prostratus’ delightfully scrambles over a wall.
Spirea ‘Odon’ – this charming woodie blooms several times a year…
Vinca major – Periwinkle a ground cover I love to hate!
Enjoy – living the EntwinedLife
