ok, the worst of winter to come but what perennial are you looking forward to seeing flowering in spring.  Excluding hellebores and other late winter stuff.  Those that flower when spring is well and truly established and we have had a few weeks of sunshine.

dicentras, astilbes, euphorbia polychroma and anchusa for me to start you off ....(ssssh! I'm really looking for another plant or two so imagination please folks
