Chionodoxa etc.

Dear All,
	It seems like  Chionodoxa cultivars can come in pink, white 
or blue. Blue seems the most typical, but my favorite is C. forbesii 
'Pink Giant.  It is large (relatively) vigorous and persists.

	I've tried as many as I can reasonably get my hands on and 
this definitely performs better than all others.

	Still missing 'Blue giant"... one of these days.

	....and by the way, the blue (typical ) Scilla bifolia 
continues to impress for its small (even minute) size. It self sews 
around the garden and can come up thickly enough to put on a show. 
I've tried both pink and white forms, but the blue does best.

	And the first daffodils have started: 'Rynveld's Early 
Sensation', ' Early to Rise', 'Gigantic Star' (in a warm spot), a 
couple cyclaminus cvs. and more each day.

	And another thanks to the BX (Roy Herold, I think) for the 
Corydalis solida 'Eco Special Pink' putting on a nice little show. 
Quite a flashy hot pink !

	I hope everyone is experiencing the start of spring.

		Best to all.		Jim W.
