Excuse my ignorance, but is it common to see the purple-leaved version of this acer flowering in this country? Mine is covered in buds and I am flabbergasted! Now I'll get 50 posts telling me it's common as muck

Add to that, winter-flowering jasmine, aconites and sternbergia autumn crocuses as well!

Agree that pink and yellow doesn't work so well. Also not massively keen on bright blues with daff yellow- reminds me of IKEA

Love egg yolk yellows in combination with purples of hebe Pascal and pittosphorum Tom Thumb. My miniature daffs look lovely next to the purples of snakes head fritillaries too.

it all depends on the hue of the yellow in question

Reminds me of spring and sunny days.
