April Wildflowers in a Upper Middle Tennessee Forest

Continuing with our walk about looking at wildflowers here we see Fire pinks, (Silene virginica).

This is two of those transplanted wildflowers I was talking about in my last post. Here the tall shrub/tree is Blackhaw viburnum (Viburnum prunifolium) and the lower limey green shrub is 'Dream Catcher' beauty bush (Kolkwitsia amabilis).

Some kind of buckeye though I am not sure which kind. I noticed buckeyes were very nearly the first trees to leaf out this spring.

One last picture looking down Wildflower Hill. This native dogwood is such a pretty sight in the spring that I find myself photographing it and sharing it each year. It grows right next to a taller tree; probably a wild cherry; but it does very well....

  1. I love to look into a wooded area and see white dogwoods blooming. It is a sure sign of spring. It seems like they are beckoning you into the woods to see what else is blooming. :) I have never seen a Blackhaw Viburnum trained into a tree. It is very pretty. I have May Apples and a few Trilliums in my garden too. They are up and about to bloom. Happy Earth Day.

    1. Thanks Lisa! I really love tree forms of most show woody plants but unfortunately, this one wants to be a shrub and I may let it revert. It is just too hard fighting to keep it limbed up. It is a stalwart tho and I love it.

  2. What a beautiful view looking down Wildflower Hill! You have such a bounty of wildflowers, Tina, shown here and on the last post; you must be even more thrilled to be in your new home.

  4. The dogwood really pops out there. Glad the chokecherry made the move so well. Thanks for sharing your green spring with us!
