Cherry Ong is taking us to see the early spring flowers in VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, British Columbia, on a superbly sunny spring day.
Calluna vulgaris ‘Zoe’ (Zones 4–8) is placing on a fireplace present at Heather Backyard. That intense crimson coloration is from the foliage, not the flowers. A yellow-green in the summertime, it turns crimson within the winter months.
The moss-covered atmosphere showcases these crocuses superbly and does not must be lower like a garden. This can permit the crocus foliage to mature naturally and retailer power for subsequent yr’s flowering.
