Winter Daphne (Daphne odora ‘Aureo-marginata’)

All the above photos were taken at Dawn Gardens in January, 2018. Many will continue to bloom through February and March.

Open garden day at Dawn Gardens (14446 Perimeter Rd., Grass Valley, CA) will be March 17, 2018 from 9 AM to 5 PM.  If this mild weather continues the daffodils will be in full bloom by the middle of March.  There are some already blooming now on February 4th.  I have also planted 1000 tulips and many of them may be blooming by the middle of March.  My workers and I have also planted 2000 tulips and 2000 daffodils at the South Campus of Crossroads Church (1101 Auburn Ravine Rd., Auburn, CA) and they should be blooming from the middle of March to the middle of April.  The North Campus of Crossroads Church (10050 Wolf Rd., Grass Valley, CA) will have a display of 1000 tulips and 500 daffodils at about the same time.
