Garden Bloggers Bloom Day – January 2013

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:

Helleborre array


Hel Pink


Burgundy Hel

Hellebores – what’s not to like –  reminder to cut back some leaves for a better show!


Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Jelena’  – Copper beauty

Bracts Lecoth

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!

Mondo Blu

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 Ogden

Spirea ‘Odon’  –  this charming woodie  blooms several times a year…


Vinca major – Periwinkle a ground cover I love to hate!

Enjoy – living the  EntwinedLife
