I love bulbs because a) They're early and b) They weather crazy temps like pros! and c) they're cheap! lol

Flower bulbs are also easy to take care of. A dose of bone meal and a tad of compost and you are on your way!

Just... don't plant them in water... they rot, but I've seen them growing by stream shores so sometimes I wonder if their water sensitivity is restricted to certin cultivars or is a complete myth.

Coming soon per request: Peonies, columbine and other, later bloomers.

Trouble is...this far south many don't do well unless you refrigerate them for a while. Some people down here have a lot more success with them than I do, but I've never seen a bulb garden this far south to compare with the ones further north.

Oh! right! But please don't feel bad. Nothing IMHO compares with southern tropicals!

Sorry I took so long to get back to you.

It's called forsythia. It's a very hardy and easy to grow shrub. Mine arejust babys started from cuttings.

Thanks clumsygrdner! I've got two of these shrubs and they both have their pretty yellow flowers on them already! I have two other unknown shrub like things back there that I might take a pic of later and put on the name that plant forum. Don't ya just love surprises!
