Garden Bloggers‘ Bloom Day – January 2019

First Bloom Day of the year – and there aren’t many blooms to show. Winter here in Central Europe so far has been mild but too cold for many of the winter bloomers in my garden. I probably have to get more plants that bloom reliably in this season.

Sarcococca confusa seems to be starting to bloom. I don’t smell anything yet, so I’m not sure if the blooms are open. Sarcococca confusa and the fern Polystichum polyblepharum make an elegant combination in the shade garden.

There was heavy snow just a couple of days before. It has melted, but it left flattened blooms on Mahonia media ‚Winter Sun‘ behind.

Lonicera color pop.

Viburnum tinus is my favorite „common“ garden plant. It provides great winter interest with its superb evergreen foliage and the scented winter blooms.

There are only buds on Prunus mume, but I’m already excited for the show in spring!

My noid Hamamelis hasn’t opened the flower buds either, there is a tiny bit of yellow showing on there, though.

Garden Bloggers‘ Bloom Day is hosted by May Dreams Gardens.
