not counting peshemnii and reginae-olgae I have early snowdrops flowering too. Looking good are G. elwesii Hiemalis Group and plicatus 'Three Ships'. The latter normally looks good for Christmas and the new year. I have other winter/spring plants getting things wrong. I have the following in flower Primrose - P. vulgaris Cowslip - P. veris Pulsatilla - P. vulgaris Ranunculus ficaria all in fully leaf and some flowering. Daphne - D. bohlua 'J. Postill' creeping Phlox - Mark N Ireland ----- Original Message ----- From: "Jim McKenney" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: <email@example.com> Sent: Tuesday, November 23, 2004 6:30 PM Subject: [pbs] Galanthus elwesii in bloom! > The first Galanthus elwesii have appeared on the front lawn, a bit earlier > than usual. > > Jim McKenney > firstname.lastname@example.org > Montgomery County, Maryland, USA, USDA zone 7, where we have had a killing > freeze yet gardens are still full of interesting flowering odds and ends.
