Lewisia and Doronicum orientale are both flowering for me. Both are well worth getting, lewisia especially with its outstanding flowers.

Daffs are up too. I was surprised that they come up before tulips.

Yes, I love my leopards bane for greening up so early in spring and then blooming early too.  Mine didnt show any buds a few days ago but hopefully itll be blooming soon!  I have several and theyre all in quite a bit of shade.
I dont have lewisia but have thought about it.  What kind of spot is yours in?  i.e. soil, drainage etc.?

I have two lewisia, they're both in raised beds, no special treatment with the soil, they seem to be very happy.

Very helpful, thanks!

Yeah I think as long as you have good drainage they'll be fine. I should also mention that one is in sunny and the other is in partly sunny conditions and they're fine with it.

I'm finding that most plants seem to enjoy partly-sunny conditions more than sunny (straight south exposure).

The Tulipa tarda look great..I've got to try some of those!
