Winter-Blooming Bergenia

What’s in Bloom

The green, green gardens are deep in their winter sleep right now. Which doesn’t mean there’s no other color – the winter-blooming bergenia is a shot of pink and, this being California, there are still a few roses blooming. But most everything is gathering its strength for spring. View more photos…

Did You Know?

In California, Arbor Day is celebrated on March 7th, in honor of Luther Burbank’s birthday. (In many other parts of the country it’s celebrated late in April, as being a more appropriate time, weatherwise, for planting trees.)

In fact, California celebrates Arbor Week, March 7-14. You can find more information about local activities at Arbor Week.
