Isn't that funny! This morning I had to go downstairs and look at the plant tag because I couldn't remember "Agapanthus." It just drives me CRAZY and I suspect it is due to aging. Grrrr!

Your sandcherry is beautiful!

My neighbor had to chop hers way back this year, 'cause the rabbit chewed all the bark. I miss the blooms. Very pretty.

I have 2 purple sand cherry trees

They have not even began to leaf out yet

Where are you and what zone??

Too early for SC to be in bloom now in most of Canada except BC I would think
