Don't blink. You might miss these great little plants. You may think daffodils herald the arrival of spring but these native bloomers know just when spring is really here. Look for it and others on the list to be the first to bloom as temperatures moderate and winter leaves for sure.
These early blooming plants are especially important for pollinators as they emerge in spring when many other food sources are scarce.
Consider planting one or more of these charmers:
- Dutchman's Breeches
- Trout Lily
Leave a comment and tell me about the ephemerals growing in your neck of the woods! I'd love to hear about them.
