Every time another bulb order arrives in the mail a gardener gets ??? the BILL !!!
This has been one crazy year and for some reason the CRAZINESS has been buying bulbs in hopes of seeing a fantastic display come Spring time ... I have been working towards this for all the garden years I have put in to this place .. it isn't a massive display I am looking for but one a little more subtle and unusual perhaps ?
So my last orders were one from Hortico for ornamental grasses .. 2 Piglets to bulk up the other 2 Piglets (sounds like an entry to a joke, I know ..) beside the tall cedars on the left hand side of the sun strip ... and Hameln at the end of the little dry stream bed to look more in proportion (fingers crossed)
These double flowered fragrant daffodils just grabbed me and made me get them ... now how could anyone resist them I ask you ... how sweet can it get ? Pompentte
I have always loved striped crocus Pickwick ... there is something special about them .. like an Easter Chocolate bunny ... I don't know how I had that connection embedded in my brain but it is what it is!
neglectum" some how rings a bell that I don't have to give them a second thought .. that they will take care of themselves no matter what .. yahoo !
You have to love plants that at least say they try to do that !
The botanical name is "Ipheion uniflorum" the darkest blue of it's catagory ... I have never heard of this flower until it was offered from Vesey's bulbs .. it is supposed to flower right into early summer .. then rest .. and pop up again with the cooler days of early Fall ...you have to love that right ?
Pink hybrid tiger lily ... with chocolate colored spots ... what else could I say to make it more appealing ? ... it just IS !!
