Fasciation - that is what is going on with that one bloom.

I've seen a few Winter Hazels around the Philadelphia area at arboretums, estates, campuses, and at professional landscapes. This Buttercup is the main one. My biggest customer has a good specimen in her landscape on a slope above an artificial pond in mid-day full sunshine, but also some shade. It is a good-looking medium sized shrub that is neat and clean with good flowers, smooth grey bark, and form. This species is native to Japan and Taiwan.

I've had Woodside Debutante for many years now. The flowers are quite pretty but it does poorly in my garden. It has a difficult time with multiple freeze/thaw cycles in late winter/early Spring. I suspect it would do much better in a warmer climate.

My plants were bought from Wild & Son April 2017 and are a peach pink and not as medium pink as the other pictures here in the database. It definitely has the yellow throat.

I eventually gave up on Evening Trail. It is such a nice color & has great form, but the blooms are way too few to justify taking up space.

Every year this gives an excellent show. By the looks of the other photos, other people also get great shows from it.

By ILPARW on Apr 15, 2019 5:30 PM, concerning plant: Sand cherry (Prunus pumila)

This Dwarf Plum or Sandcherry is native from New Brunswick to southern Manitoba down into the central Plains to Kansas to around the Great Lakes to some spots in the Appalachians to northern New Jersey to New England, growing in dry sandy sites in neutral to slightly alkaline soils. It an irregular, loosely branched shrub that spreads by rhizomes, often is only about 2 feet high, but can get to 8 feet high. Many botanists recognize three varieties based mostly on different leaf shapes. The leaves are 1.5 to 2.5 inches long by 1 inch wide, darker green above and getting a good fall color of yellow to red. The small, white, numerous flowers are about 1/2 inch across with 5 rounded petals with one style surrounded by white stamens with yellow tips, blooming in spring before the leaves unfold. The fruit is a nearly black, shiny, rounded drupe about 1/2 inch in diameter with a single bitter seed inside. The fleshy fruit can be delicious or tart, but is edible for humans as raw or cooked or in preserves, but the seed is bitter and should not be eaten. I have not seen this species yet, but I'll look for it. Some native plant nurseries sell some. I saw one photo online that is about 8 feet high in Minnesota and looks good to me in its informal form. This species was crossed with the Purpleleaf Plum Tree to produce the Purple Sandcherry shrub (Prunus x cistena) that is commonly planted.

By ILPARW on Apr 15, 2019 4:35 PM, concerning plant: Black Mondo Grass (Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens')

This black-foliaged cultivar is the only form of this species that I've seen. The foliage begins as green and then turns almost black. Mondo-grass is a tuberous rooted, often stoloniferous, grass-like perennial of the Lily Family from Japan, closely related to Liriopes. It is a stemless plant with narrow, linear basal leaves in arching, slowly spreading clumps. The white tinged pink, 6-tepaled bell-like flowers about 1/4 inch long in summer are on leafless stems (scapes). They are followed by dark purple, pea-sized glossy berries. It grows best in moist, rich, slightly acid soil. The genus name of "Ophio pogon" comes from Greek meaning "snake beard." The cultivars and the mother species are much better plants than the similar Liriope spicata, the Creeping Liriope or Lilyturf, for gardens because they don't aggressively take over beds and get under the other plants and become such a horrible maintenance problem.

Shrike's corona is yellow upon opening and matures through yellow orange into a beautiful coral pink over a couple days.
