Collection U: Essential Late Spring Perennials
Dutch show gardens feature an increasingly diverse selection of special miscellaneous bulbs in both formal and free-form, natural designs. Anemone blanda, Chionodoxa, Muscari, and Scilla are often used as floral carpets under contrasting Tulips or Narcissi. Eranthis hyemalis, Galanthus and Oxalis are planted prolifically in meandering woodland drifts. Allium, Brodiaea and Camassia are clustered in substantive drifts among early summer perennials. Expand the repertoire of summer flowering bulbs with these diverse perennials, each of which are deer- and rodent-resistant, as well as good for cutting.
Estimated planting area: 33 square feet. Bulb size: top size. Bloom time: May-June. Plant 3" to 5" deep and 3" to 4" apart. Horticultural zones: 5-7. Height: 15" to 24".
(Please note that due to state agricultural restrictions, we are not permitted to ship Allium bulbs to Idaho or the following 5 counties in the state of Washington: Adams, Benton, Franklin, Grant and Klickitat.)
Please note that our collections are shipped in mid-October. (Each variety's photo appears in order as listed from left to right and top to bottom.)
