Spring snow? Your native plants are fine!

Updated: Apr 29, 2021

The early spring flowering of native plants does not always take into account the possibility of a late April snowfall, as happened this year on April 21.

Fortunately, snow is a natural insulator and plants such as Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) are hardy enough to withstand late spring snowfalls that typically are short-lived.
