Hammer, up in zone 9 the Meyers and Ponderosa Lemons are blooming.

Here I have the ones listed yesterday and Erythrina herbacea.

They are good Humming bird nectar plants, as are Bananas.

Shannon:
My avatar is a Washington Navel planted on a 20 gal pot at some point. When it overgrew the pot I planted it on the ground. But it was fruiting just like in the picture every year.

Oh you would have to mention the Green Sapote! Is it a named cultivar?

It has not a cultivar name I'm aware of. These came from PI Nursery HS. There was not much Pouteria viridis stock left in Florida after Andrew. If my sources are correct, these came from one tree that is unnamed from Guatemalan stock. I plan on raising seed to see what variations are adaptable here.

I'll post some pictures tomorrow if the sun cooperates with my picture efforts.

That one is really nice Moonshiner.

That, Red Barrels, and Joshua trees almost makes me want to move back to SoCal. On second thought, no way! I liked my time there, and may visit once in a while, but I'll stay in zone 10 where we don't have to worry too much about the ground shaking! But after they were over some of them did seem a little "fun."

My magnolia soulangiana is in full purple/white bloom now.



The magnolia "Butterfly" that we put in last spring is beginning it's gorgeous and fragrant yellow blooming.





So are my celandine and Andromedas.
