The lilac daphne is the plant that gets everyone excited about gardening during the winter. Bare branches explode with color in late January, early February. This daphne instantly turns a bleak yard into a garden. That's why we're having a Feb 7 & 8 event to showcase it.
Alongside the Daphne will be Wildwood's Dogwoods. They'll be blooming too, technically speaking. The small flower probably won't be surrounded by the showy bracts that most people call the flower... Still, Daphnes and Dogwoods are pretty nice prelude to spring.
