2/22/2017 Forsythia is REALLY early; hellebore is getting close. 2/24/2017 Just realized I entered the forsythia date on hellebore - Sorry! I have corrected it. 3/13/2017 We had a very hard frost and there will be more extremely cold temps this coming week. The star magnolia was far enough along that the buds and blooms are zapped. 3/16/2017 The forsythia looks as though the frost got the best of it.�� 3/27/2017 Our star magnolia has more blooms as of 3/26; evidently some buds were not far enough along in development to be affected by the freeze. Should we count that as a re-bloom??? End of bloom is 4/17/2017 The red roth lilac did not fully bloom, only the buds that were somewhat protected from frost. Thankfully, we had enough to measure bloom span.� 5/9/2017 - I will be out of town for about 5 weeks, but the committee members are supposed to check bloom span and pollinators. They are supposed to save the data and I will enter it ASAP when I return. Thanks! Monarda didyma - correct date is 6/22/2017 CORRECTION: Date for Oakleaf hydrangea end of bloom is 8/27/2017 - I inadvertently made it in June- sorry!!!
