    The giselle have faded, but the clematis behind it is in its first flush of purple flowers.

    C1D7CF29-DB68-40EB-A283-FBCBA2BFEBAA.jpeg Second cyp of the season. First in pot. Gisela Frosch’s Noble Geisha. Not sure why this one is so early. I have another Gisela pastel in pot that is weeks from flowering. (Sorry another cloudy morning)

    Very nice, thanks for sharing. I haven't had time to go to the backyard to see if anything has come back! :(

    Well, mine have just appeared (Quebec City area). Don't give up. In what general area do you live?

    Sorry I don’t think I’ve had problems with snails or mice in my cyps. My problems are squirrels/chipmunks digging in the ground and pots, and slugs/snails on Hebenaria.

    I had voles who did a good job on a clump of Cyp montanum - only once. Maybe cover the clump with a 1/4 inch wire mesh like one does with tulips.

    I know. He's bringing me guttatum and Christian. The tibeticum I bought last fall is poking up through the soil now.

    Tibeticum from Mrs Perner? I bought from her a tibeticum & a flavum (+ a dozen other things...). Both are coming up. I was a little worried they might not make but they did. Got luck with your guttatum - it might be a challenge. I've hadn't had much success. It seems winters aren't long enough and it's really too hot during summer.
