I keep looking at past April records to see if we are behind or ahead of schedule. It's a witless waste of time as the garden is on the schedule it's on and knowing what happened other years won't make a bit of difference. Thus, here's what's blooming THIS April 15!
Iris reticulata 'Harmony'
Sanguinaria canadensis (Bloodroot)
Galanthus 'Magnet' (Snowdrop). Wish I had noted when this started blooming as it is still going strong and each bulb appears to have sent up two flowers. I am crazy about this snowdrop!
Helleborus niger 'Sunset Group' (Hellebore). This white variety from the still-mourned Seneca Hill has outward facing flowers which adds to their charm.
Helleborus x hybrida (Hellebore, the next two photos)
Hepatica noblis 'European Pink'. I've been waiting for this to do something since I planted it in 2012. Definitely worth the wait! (The larger flower is fading; the smaller one is the true color upon opening).
To see what's blooming in other gardens in the U.S. visit May Dreams Gardens which has been hosting this wonderful meme since before I began blogging in 2008.
