Let's start with Passaflora edulis. No cold damage this winter and it is already blooming.

I have some iris in bloom. The first two pics are blue flag iris and the third is African iris.

Hibiscus didn't get cold damage either.

The tomatos are coming right along.

This little Jatropha, commonly called a coral plant, was given to me for speaking to a garden club.

I'll leave you with a pictura of my datura. It bloomed all winter.

Looking great down there , Jim! Your Jatropha is really neat..I've never heard of this plant before.
What a nice thank you gift! And your iris is beautiful...Speaking of Iris...I saw this on my walk around today...

Thumb of 2012-03-10/sugarcane/1296fd seems REALLY early to me...especially since it's expected to dip to 27 degrees tonight!
My daffodils are starting to go crazy and here's a few , some looking a little tattered from the gale force winds the other day.

Grumbling We had some snow Friday night. But my heaths are blooming! And a hepatica. Can't really compare though! I have a Jatropha with rounded leaves and also a bright orange red flower cluster.

I should have put Jatropha multifida to make it clearer as there are many kinds of Jatropha. I need to get it the ground but we had company today and besides, it is still very windy.

Janice and Lindsey are proving that it is daffodil time in the Carolinas. Beautiful show ladies.

It was actually warm enough here the last two days to weed my garden. Spring is almost here!
The Crocus are in full gear right now.

I grow neither crocus nor daffodils so this is a real treat. Also, I've been carrying this thread for three months and I'm looking forward to some help. I'm thinking you all must be boared with my offerings by now. Sticking tongue out

And Jim, you did it wonderfully so! I always enjoy your garden via your pictures! Thumbs up
You know, I almost didn't post these Crocus, I didn't think it was anything special.
Heh, when everything is bleak up here in NJ, these garden threads here have color and beautiful blooms!

Crocus are special to those of us who never get to see them. This thread is like getting a well-rounded education.
