Considering features of my blooming calendar…what should go in the database?
Besides the obvious names and taxonomy of the individual plants, each will need to described with respect to their growing habits.
Does the plant sprout up, grow its greenery and then produce a flower in the usual sequence? Some plants show their flowers first and then put on the leaves. Coltsfoot comes to mind.
What time of year is the best for viewing the blooms of the plant? What color range do the blooms have and where can we see them?
These are some of the questions that I envision my blooming calendar will help answer. Stay tuned for more updates.
