Like a lot of us, the Eastern Redbud simply can’t wait very long for spring to come. It pushes out flowers even before its leaves break through.

It is a great time to divide and transplant hardy asters, chrysanthemums and other fall perennials now. Other established perennials such as helenium, phlox and shasta daisie ..read more
