I’m a summer girl, through and through, and February always has me itching for hot days with the sun on the back of my neck and dirt under my fingernails. So I’m making lists of plants I’m going to grow in the spring and dreaming of sunflowers like stained glass.
And this is Sorbus aucuparia ‘Cardinal Royal’, which I am really looking forward to trying. Not only does it have these stunning red berries which birds love, it has beautiful white flowers in the spring and spectacular fall color.
These beauties are just a few of the things I’m really looking forward to trying in my garden this year, and it’s a great way to occupy the dreary still-too short February days. But the days are getting longer, and spring is on its way.
Are there any interesting or exciting plants you are looking forward to this season?
And 40 more days till spring.
