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.)

  • Information
  • Our special collections have been created so that you may experiment with wonderful companion flower bulbs in smaller quantities at exceptionally low prices. All varieties are individually packaged and labeled. Horticultural information and individual descriptions are included under each variety's listing on our website. The estimated square footage for each collection is based on a single layer, solid planting at the rate of four large bulbs per square foot or nine small bulbs per square foot. The planting coverage will vary based on your particular landscape design. Determine the square footage of your garden by multiplying its width by its depth. Collections are shipped mid-October. All bloom times are approximated for horticultural zone 5 in a normal, prolonged spring. Please note that spring heat spikes can cause flowers to bloom early and perhaps a bit shorter although they will continue to grow in height while they are in bloom. Adjust the estimated bloom times for your clients' gardens according to their horticultural zone or microclimate.
