Diane LaSauce shares some of her favorite spring blooms from Zone 6 in central Virginia. 

"I strive for heirloom and edible varieties in my half-acre gardens. Sedum Stonecrop, Tete a tete daffs (part of my collection of over 2500 heirloom varieties), Oriental poppy Snowflake viburnum Clematis (old, no name), Chives Viola (not only pretty, but edible!), Hellebore foetidus Heirloom peonies (from my home place on Long Island, doing well in VA), Rescued Iris (heavenly scents and they bloom for three weeks) Concord grape, Ichi Ke Jiro dwarf persimmon flower."
