So... are they coming back?
Again, first spring waiting to see things I planted last year come back. So far so good... I can see hostas, heliopsis, quince shrub, valerian, echinacea, rudbeckia, sedums, salvias, hydrangeas and of course bulbs coming up so far. However... a pink columbine has shown no signs of reappearing yet.... at this point, should it have already started to show? I have some seeds from the pink one and some for "blue star" I ordered from Swallow Tail but I'm wondering if the original plant might come back.
Russian sage, too.. I didn't do any pruning to it in the fall so I could tell where new growth was coming from and prune then.... hopefully its just taking its time.... or should it have started already? And hollyhocks (zebra)? Those I chopped down... hopefully that wasn't a bad move.
Any input would be appreciated. I'm sure I look nuts going out front and looking at the Russian Sage, yelling 'why are you doing this to me?! GROW ALREADY!"
