Hi there! My title is Lena White. I dwell in Charlotte, North Carolina. I’ve been gardening right here for over 30 years. I’ve only in the near past retired from the follow of drugs, so now I’ve extra time to spend doing what I like.
This spring’s present of coloration has been actually particular!
This primary picture is my Snowball viburnum (Viburnum plicatum, Zones 3–8). It has gotten a bit too tall, so I’ll attempt to trim it again after blooming.
Subsequent is a ‘George L. Taber’ azalea (Rhododendron ‘George L. Taber’, Zones 7–9), certainly one of my favorites. This is likely one of the southern indica sorts of azaleas, which boast giant flowers for an azalea and nice shows.
This Woman Banks rose (Rosa banksiae ‘Lutea’, Zones 7–10) has climbed as much as the highest of the home. Woman Banks is an almost thornless climbing rose.
And much more azaleas, as a result of what would a Southern backyard be with out azaleas?
‘Forest Pansy’ redbud (Cercis canadensis ‘Forest Pansy’, Zones 5–9) with the solar shining via the leaves.
A good looking azalea with double flowers displaying further layers of petals for much more coloration.
‘Winky Double’ columbine (Aquilegia ‘Winky Double’, Zones 4–8) has double flowers, a compact progress behavior, and upward-facing blooms.
A white clematis (Clematis, early large-flowered group, Zones 4–10) is positioned in entrance of a blue scaevola (Scaevola aemula, Zones 10–11 or as annual).
The pink climbing rose ‘Zéphirine Drouhin’ (Zones 5–9) has aromatic flowers and almost thornless stems.
Rosa ‘Fourth of July’ (Zones 5–9) is a climbing rose with striped red-and-white flowers, every one displaying a unique sample.
