What a beautiful, color-drenched March you had! I especially like that Hacquettia - I had never seen that plant before but it is lovely.

Great plants for March Jordan. Like Spurge I was very taken with the Hacquettia. We came across it the other day and thought it may look good in the woodland.

Those are gorgeous, especially the Hacquettia. Spring in the Pacific Northwest is so breathtakingly beautiful, and offers such a wide range of amazing colors. I live in Oregon, and right now is a great time to be here.
