Our Zone 4 garden has a frost free average date of May 15th. Most years I play it safe and plant my tender plants and vegetables in the last few days of May or early June. But mid April does bring some flowers. My first bloom in April was Hellebore.
I grow this in zone 4 protected by a juniper tree. Does anyone know if i dare move it? Do any other gardeners in zone 4 have success with growing hellebore? I think I bought this from zone 5. PS: Yesterday, I was c leaning up the garden around this lovely plant and saw that that there were 2 or 3 little seedlings! So I will move them!
Species tulips self sow in my front boulevard garden.
These short “flags” Iris are fragrant. The deer will walk right by them. I also have blooming daffodils, periwinkle and some of the wooly veronica.
