Last Wednesday, the furry buds of Amelanchier x grandiflora 'Autumn Brilliance' were extending.
Yesterday, four days later, the shoots have turned upright, and individual flower buds are visible. Bloom is imminent.
Helenium autumnale, Sneezeweed, NYC-local Ecotype. This plant already needs dividing, something I wasn't expecting to do for another month.
Podophyllum peltatum, Mayapple
Mertensia virginica, Virgina Bluebells, is already tall and full of sky-blue flower buds.
Flower Buds, Vaccinium corymbosum, Highbush Blueberry, NYC-local ecotype. This also seems extremely early. Maybe I'll get blueberries in May this year.
Allium tricoccum, Ramps
