ENTS, Some photos from last weekend of several different plants and trees in my region blooming. Spring is the most beautiful time of the year. Larry

Larry-
Great photos. We have a lot of saucer magnolias and redbuds here in N Ohio, but the saucer magnolias always bloom 2-3 weeks earlier than the redbuds---it's curious they bloom at the same time in your area. Camellias are "experimental" here, at best, but I do have a Jasminum nudiflorum in my yard ready to bloom. The Loropetalum I've not tried.

Steve, Down here the Loropetalum get 10' tall they are awesome! The Bigleaf Magnolia is one of our most spectacular flowering trees. 10-12 Dia., Flowers, a understory species. I'll make a trip up from the coast 50 miles to get some photos. They bloom in May the leaves are cool to, 20-30" in length. I wish I would have went up this winter and dug up some small ones. Its deciduous like you saucer magnolia. Larry
