Product Details

Product Details

Chionodoxa forbesii's smaller, upward-facing flowers are bright purplish blue with a white center. Heirloom, 1880.

These Mediterranean natives bloom very early and produce sprays of 5-10 star-shaped flowers in glorious shades of blue, pink, and white. They can carpet the bare soil of perennial beds just starting into growth, or play off the leaf color of Bergenia, Heuchera, and Tiarella, or combine with other April-blooming bulbs, such as Crocus or Trumpet Narcissus. Superb for naturalizing in full sun to partial shade in rock gardens, woodlands, and lawns.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Nothing has come up (yet) :(

Good quality bulbs

Alice Berger from Laceyville, PA

I planted these in the fall, and they came up as promised this spring. The bulbs were good quality, and it appears that most have bloomed. (The squirrels may have taken a couple.) They have been blooming for a couple of weeks. The plants are very short, and it's difficult to see them from our country road, but up close you can admire their beauty.

Cute

A viewer from Ohio

Only six of the 50 I ordered came up, and I suspect squirrels or the mild winter--not WFF. Those that did survive are quite cute and pretty. I will order again and hope for more survivors next spring.

Nice early season color after the snow

Francine from Ellenville, NY

These are very bright and cheery in a drab after winter scene...but I should have planted many many more to get the real affect these can have. I will be buying more of these to really ring in spring next year.
