Blooming now

‘New Charm’ is beginning to open now.  It’s going to be really cold for the  next week or so, so the blooms should last awhile.  But it may be a challenge to keep my garage warm enough for my pots of bulbs.

    Very nice Fyno blooms. Mary Lou asked for a status update on my bulbocodiums bloom in the garden after our recent cold snap. It got to about 7ºF here one night and stayed below freezing for several days. The foliage on all the bulbocodiums looks fine , but the flowers were fairly collapsed, some flat on the ground. Here were the best two blooms left. ;-> These were on Taffeta, are not very attractive, but as the bee was excited to find the pollen, I decided to take its lead and cut the blossoms to see if the pollen might be any good for a couple of later crosses. These beds are in the open, very exposed in the front yard. Out back on the hillside I cut one opening bud of a yellow trumpet (that darn unknown one) and have more buds on those, as well as buds showning on Saint Keverne. Some other daffs, mainly jonquilla, have foliage about 3-4″ tall.
