Hibernal Journal.

There aren't a lot of plants brave (or foolhardy) enough to bloom, or put out foliage in late fall in Iowa. Cyclamen cilicium is a nice exception, in the flower department; then there those hardy souls that like to put out their leaves in the fall, that persist through the winter (hibernal leaves); I showed recently, a couple of orchids that do this. Here are some of the varieties of hepatica that have nice, shiny leaves that hide in the forest litter, under the ice and snow, and are a delight to the winter gardener. Posted by Picasa
