early spring flowering shrubs - Purple Lily
Purple Lily Magnolia Tree Five Gallon
The Purple Lily Magnolia will treat you to very showy flowers each and every spring. A cool thing about blooming magnolia trees, which are frequently called Tulip Trees, is that the purple flowers emerge before the leaves, so the brilliant show of color can be enjoyed without the leaves in the way. Consider the purple lily magnolia in the lawn to contrast the abundance of green hues, or consider in large planter beds where it can become a focal point for additional landscaping. This magnolia variety grows slowly to only 6 to 10 feet, giving it many design possibilities in the landscape. Use as a source of color in Asian gardens when Camellia and Azalea have not yet bloomed. Good cut flower. The purple lily magnolia is hardy to USDA zone 5 and higher, so use with confidence. Full sun and consistent water, at least until establishment. Shipped as a potted specimen to ensure the best possible start when planted in yard or garden.
The forsythia by the garden
November 11, 2010 Forsythia adds as wonderful a touch of yellow to the fall landscape as it does to the early spring one, when it is almost the first shrub that blooms accompanied by early daffodils. A bit of history on this most common of garden shrubs: The Swedish naturalist Carl Peter Thunberg (1770-1779), who studied under and worked with the famous Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778), and who was the author of "Flora Japonica"(1784), the first western description of the flora and fauna of Japan, was the first Westerner to find Forsythia suspensa growing in a garden in Japan during the late 1700's. The shrub was brought to Holland by 1833. Forsythia is named in honor of the Scottist botanist William Forsyth(1737-1804), lead gardener of the Royal gardens, and founding member of the Royal Horticultural Society.
A magnificent camellia shrub not far from my house on Capitol Hill, Washington, DC is starting to bloom (Feb. 15, 2009) so I know spring is on its way. I'm sure there will be a detour or two in its arrival but every day will bring more flowers and longer days. Hooray!
