Spring has arrived at Plant Exchange Blog in South Dakota! Pelicans have migrated north and songbirds are everywhere. In our USDA Zone 4-5a region, we may have encountered the last frost to start the season.
Wild native plums are quite showy in early mornings and evenings these days.
New leaves dress trees and shrubs like this Japanese maple.
First blossoms appear on young crabapple trees.
In the chill of early morning, pollinators that enjoy the buckeye x horse chestnut tree blossoms haven’t arrived yet.
Trillium’s in bloom at the edge of the woods.
Bleeding heart flowers in light shade.
Virginia bluebells greet the day.
Grape hyacinth rises from last fall’s planting.
Redbuds accent new growth.
Lilacs, a Midwestern sign of spring, are blooming bouquets for all to enjoy.
