Thank you very much for posting the Ninebark Diablo in bloom. It is spectacular. How long did it take for it to get to this size? I have three which were planted 2 summers ago, and I can hardly wait for them to get to the size of yours! :)

Thank you Brenda for commenting on my tree. I've had it about 5 to 7 years. I found it grew quite quickly and has been putting on a spectacular display for a long time. It's planted on the corner of my carport in full sun and gets a fair amount of rain water . Edie

[b]Thanks Edie. I have one at the corner of my garage, which doesn't get a lot of sun, and two in another area of the garden which does get a lot of sun. It will be interesting to see which does. better. So far, the one at the corner of the garage is doing the best, but the other two are also doing quite well.
I can hardly wait for spring! I'm going to be away for the whole of March. I don't want to wish the month to go by quickly, but by the time we get back spring should be arriving! :D

I want one of those Purple Ninebarks- especially after seeing them in bloom. . .

The delicate shading of your narcissus is very appealing Greg.

I'll have to look into Nepeta faesinii (catmint) such a nice blue. Same with the Nigella.
