Colors, Blooms & Pollinator Plants!
This week we are giving you a tour of the colorful foliage and blooms we are seeing around the farm. In early spring, plants exit dormancy and push new growth. With the consistently warm temperatures we have experienced here in Zone 7 in the Southeast, we are already seeing buds flush out into full bloom. And the color show does not disappoint.
In the gallery of Crop Photos this week, we are featuring an array of pollinator plants like Little Henry Itea, Weigela, Spiraea Little Princess, Drift Roses and Encore Azaleas. Each of these plants attract bees and are notated by their yellow pollinator banner in the top left corner.
We will share more about the importance of pollinator-friendly plants in the landscape later this summer, but for now, enjoy the color show and prolific blooms.
Note: the Leymus ‘Blue Dune’ were pruned this week for spring flush. The photo in this week’s gallery was taken 4/28, prior to pruning.
