Collection O: The Stinzenplanten Lawn

New! Many stately 19th-century brick homes in the north of the Netherlands have lawns graced with a succession of naturalizing flower bulbs. Known as Stinzenplanten, these naturalizers are best planted in lawns with loosely thatched grass and partial or part-day sunlight. Other choices may include Chionodoxa, Ornithogalum, leucojum and Hyacinthoides non-scripta as well as Narcissus Pheasant's Eye and Tulipa sylvestris. Hold off lawn mowing until all foliage dies back naturally.

Estimated planting area: 55 square feet. Top size bulbs. Bloom time: March-May. Plant the about 5" deep and 5" apart. Horticultural zones: 3-8. Height: 4" to 12". Please note that our collections are shipped in mid-October.
