Well, given our colder-than-the-last-decade-or-two winter, I don’t have many blooms this February. The non-native to Texas, Leatherleaf mahonia (Mahonia bealei),
sports its yellow blooms, though not all quite open and coupled with developing berries.
Also, a personal favorite of mine, the native-to-Texas Coral honeysuckle vine, (Lonicera sempervirens),
shares a sprinkling of its clusters for now. In a month or so the vine will be covered with these lovely red blooms, much to the delight of bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.
And that’s it! Nothing more: zero, nada, zilch in the bloom department.
