Blooming – Good Conditions

Q: We own property in Suches. This spring we have mountain laurel, flame azalea, Carolina allspice, fox grapes, and lady slippers blooming in profusion. They have never bloomed in the five years we have owned this property. Why?

A: I think many plants in north Georgia got just what they needed in the past couple of years. Rain, sunshine, and winter temperatures were just right. Accordingly, acorns came in abundance. Pine pollen was exceptionally profuse. Little pine seedlings were everywhere in April. Enjoy the floral fireworks! You may not have the same conditions again for several years.
