Salmonberry bushes should start blooming soon.

Clematis' are just starting to leaf out.

I didn't bother mulching the Gunnera this winter. It doesn't look like it cared.

Winter Heliotrope is blooming (smells amazing!) and just starting to put out leaves.

Your gonna have a great head start this year for lots of stuff I see. The Arums italicum is a great looking plant. Have you had yours for long? I just got a small one locally and the fellow was saying it can eventually spread making quite he site. A great plant maybe under a grove of Vivax Aureocaulis

Thanks for sharing.

That Arum italicum is an odd plant. Here it can come up in the autumn and stay all winter. Other years it comes up in the autumn, dies in the winter and comes up in the spring.Flowering & fruiting is erratic. It dies down in the summer unless it is very moist.

What's it's cycle on the west coast?

johnw - +3c & overcast

John I'm not to sure yet what the cycle is here in the PNW. Mine is still potted and is yet to be planted. Good to know about the moisture needs though to keep it up in the summer. I was thinking of planting it under my Vivax. I know then that it will get lots of water.

If memory serves: The arum italicum here starts coming up in december, and dies down at the height of summer. Mine hasn't bloomed yet.

I should really have said it will last longer into the summer if the season is moist but eventually it will go dormant.
