Boyce? (and others discussing this difficult weather)-- Boyce is further north than I about 30 miles and somewhat further inland from Lake Michigan. So I'm surprised that his stuff is ahead of mine. His temperatures have been colder. My galanthus are not showing and I'm wondering if they've disapeared. I have a few yellow species crocus blooming. Muscari up about an inch, but no bloom. Fritillaria michailowskii up about 2", a few lycoris (chinensis? and radiata) up about 3-5". Tree peonies still in very tight brown buds and no sign of any speeded growth. Kauffmaniana and Greigii tulips showing. Other species tulips showing above ground and growing. Iris spuria up about 5" . Arilbred hybrid irises slowly growing and increasing in size. Hellebores showing flower buds and new leaf growths, old leaves are totally browned and flat on the ground. Herbaceous peonies not showing above ground. Adam in Glenview.
