Bulb planning and planting: bulbs for the front of your border

Obviously our favorite shorty for the front of your perennial bed:

Allium 'Ivory Queen'


Allium 'Ivory Queen'
Height: 8"
Blooms very late Spring.

Why do we love them so much: the low, shapely leaves and the compact, long lasting white flowers.


Muscari armeniacum




Muscari armeniacum
Height: 6"
Blooms Mid-spring

Why do we love them: bright blue flowers edged with a very thin line of white. (They are inexpensive and they naturalize.)


Scilla siberica


Scilla siberica
Height: 6"
Blooms in early spring

Why we love them: naturalizing and delicate downward facing flowers wave in the early spring breeze.


Daffodils 'February Gold'


Daffodils 'February Gold'

Blooms early-spring

Why we love them: they naturalize and spread effortlessly.


Daffodils 'Tete a Tete'

Why we love them: sooo fragrant!


Daffodils 'Jack Snipe'
