What’s doing the blooming this week? The Forsythia – both the shrubs and tree form are absolutely beautiful with their buttery yellow flowers brightening up the landscape! The Magnolia trees! Awesome. Almost every street that I went down yesterday here in Northfield had either a Forsythia blooming or the white Magnolia flowers seeming to shine brilliantly. After such a long, long winter – or such a late spring – seeing these plants blossoming is such a welcoming site.
In the picture of the Forsythia shrub – you will notice that the surrounding plants are just starting to push their buds / leaves. This is what makes the Forsythia such a great plant. It’s early to blossom so you can extend spring color by planting Forsythia in your landscape. Once the flowers fall away – the bright green leaves provide a backdrop to the next layer of either late spring color or early summer color. The Magnolia picture here is pruned to this shape – and needless to say – it is eye-catching.
We have Forsythia in stock and shrub form Magnolias. The tree form Magnolias start to arrive this week! Stop in and get a dose of Spring!
