I will start with some colour, to make up for being so excited about leaves on my last visit. But my first colourful plant has its colour now in the stems - Variegated Tatarian dogwood, Cornus alba 'Creamedge'. A page at Cornus alba 'Elegantissima' habit: UIPLANTS says "This cultivar also goes under the name of 'Argenteo-marginata', but it calls the plant on that page Cornus alba 'Elegantissima'. Here are some rhododendrons in bloom. Rhododendron praevernum, which I just learned to recognize from my Stanley Park posting, though I have posted it before. But this time I recognized it without seeing a label. One of my favourites, R. barbatum, even though I couldn't see any barbs, as they were all covered up by the pesky flowers, which are actually shining very brightly in the first photo, not at all obvious in the thumbnail. Here is R. oreodoxa var. fargesii.
