End of February round up

You can compare with February last year.

Flowers

A few things were flowering this month.

Primroses

The primroses survive well here and are gradually spreading.

Snowdrops

The snowdrops bulbs that I got last year were supposed to be Galanthus nivalis, but they have broad shiny green leaves and so are probably G. woronowii. This is annoying as I prefer the thinner and gray green leaves of G. nivalis.

Hellebore

This is Helleborus × hybridus 'Christmas spirit'. I chose this as the flowers seemed to be more upward pointing than is typical. In practice they are mostly downward or at least sideways pointing.

Winter aconite

There were three patches that returned this year this was the biggest. Looking back to last year, there are far more flowers now than then, so they are doing well. I am going to get some more.
