Default What is blooming in your garden today (other plants)?

Here's my front planter with a Suebelle white sapote tree in the center.

The bulbs showing off are: Anemones, Crocus (sativus), Dutch Iris (mauve queen), Ixia, Muscari, Narcissus, and Sparaxis. Also currently blooming are Scarlet Flax (Linum grandiflorum rubrum) and Mexican Heather (Cuphea hissopifolia).

Sometimes it is hard to decide to graft when the tree is in bloom. But I did graft anyway. Here's my late bloomer. Already the Japanese and Russian plums have shed petals and have fruitlets. The cherries and the nankings are in full bloom right now. The peaches and nectarine flowers are already waning. The European plums and the Native american plums are still at budswell. This plant alone have more than 10 prunus species or prunus hybrids grafted together, including almonds. It will have apricots next year. Perhaps within 2 years after some of the pluot plant patents have expired, I will graft those also.

So far it has several sweet Cherries, Japanese Plums, European Plums, Russian Plums, White Peach, Yellow Peach, White Nectarine, Yellow Nectarine, and one each of Almond, non-patent Aprium, non-patent Plumcot, non-patent Peach Plum hybrid, Cherry plum hybrid, and a couple of Nanking cherries.

mskitty, you're welcome!

Here's one of my most beautiful flowering nectarine. Aside from fantastic fruits, the flowers are enchanting. Sometimes I just stare at them for hours doing nothing. Arctic Glo White Nectarine. This bloom is more than 15 days old. The blooms opened in March 1, and it still looked good yesterday. Very showy, big and long lasting flowers. There are other flowers of other peaches nectarines that are double and very showy. I might get those next year for double purpose duty, ornamental and fruit production. We can have both worlds too.

This is supposed to be manzano apple. It survived this winter and lost all of its leaves and was surprised that it is now pushing out bloom. This was neglected three year old banana. I'm beginning to doubt that this is the real manzano apple. I have a bigger mother stem last year but that one was toppled over by the strong wind. This once daughter pup decided to bear blooms for the mother.

I'll wait and see if this is the real manzano apple.

Joe, my favorite peach is double-blossom "Saturn" -- not to be confused with the "Saturn donut" peach sold at grocery stores and some nurseries. Here's mine from Dave Wilson nursery on Nemagard rootstock. The blossoms are just about spent now and there are 2-3" leafs poking out just about everywhere. Immediately surrounding the tree are daisies that come up every year.

As for me, the mother plant is a plout and I have grafted many other plouts, apricots, and plums ( sse the tags) and all of them are blooming.

Joe: My next want to grow bananas is a manzano. Do you think it will survive here in Salinas? I used to have one a TC that I ordered but it did not survived. perhaps if I buy a bigger one it will.
But so far I can not find one even at we be bananas.

If you can wait, I can give you a pup when they come. It should be cold hardy enough for your place. At least the p-stem will survive there, and that's what's needed for a chance at fruiting.

Thanks Joe, like you said a few weeks ago the winter here in California was great for reaching expected chill hours.

Here's what the rest of my pit fruits are doing -- a grand 'ol Apricot that came with the property is dropping petals now after an enormous fruit set, a Green Gage plum that was solid white a week ago, and a Panamint nectarine that is just starting to show color.

As for the Pomes I'm currently growing, the Hood pear was solid in white 2 weeks ago but has mostly flushed out with leafs. On the other hand, the Pettingill apple has only poked out a few leafs at the top and does not bloom until April or May -- producing a harvest in the Fall.

Thanks Richard. I just pruned drastically my Italian prunes yesterday although they are now flowering. I know it is not time to prune and lost a lot of flowers but I can wait till next year. It is just getting too tall over 15 feet.
