It's official! We have daffys in bloom! Not mine, but I've seen them all over town this week! Mine are usually later than most. Is anything happening in your yard?
I have Rose of Sharon that needs pruning before it gets much further along. It's budding. Rose of Sharon can be aggressively pruned in spring before leaf buds open, to 2 feet or so, and will develop more side shoots. Unpruned, a rose of sharon will be a small tree, 10-13 feet tall and nearly as wide. Mine are foundation planted to I will have to manage them carefully, to keep them shrub sized.
My gardenias are looking well, and there is one in my neighborhood that I want to get a picture of this year. It is HUGE, about 12 feet tall, and stays covered in blooms all summer.
