Thanks for the northern report.  All of our bearded Iris has just past their
prime this week and the PC hybrids are almost finished.  A nice planting of
Freesia laxa has me wanting more of the selections of this. The Allium
'Gladiator' and Nectaroscordum siculum will be in full bloom this weekend.
A Gladiolus cardinalis also opened this week to rave reviews, although it
had been planted in the middle of a purple and yellow planting of lavender
and euphorbia.
The colors, shall we say, clash....  We also have a very confused
Schizostylis coccinea that thinks it should be blooming now...

Merrill in Palo Alto where it rained another .6" last night.  It feels like
I never left Oregon...

Hello All:

Just a quick note for those that follow Trillium emergence as spring 
advances to the north. Trillium, maybe erectum, has just pushed 
through the ground, here in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. The 
Mayapples (Podophyllum peltatum) and Blood Root (Sanguinaria 
canadensis) are showing as well as the Yellow Lady's Slipper - 
Cypripedium (calceolus?).
