This mixture is a great way to get to know some of the best blues in the bulb world. We include 'Rolf Fiedler' and 'Froyle Mill', with pure white 'Album' to add sparkle. They make a stunning underplanting for late-season Daffodils and midseason Tulips. The bulbs are small, quick and easy to plant, and inexpensive, so there's no reason not to give this superb mixture a try.
Ipheion makes cheerful carpets of sweetly fragrant, 1in star-shaped flowers beginning here in northern Connecticut in early April. Plants grow just 3–5in tall, so they're ideal for edging a spring border or naturalizing under deciduous trees and shrubs, where they soon spread to form impressive colonies. The grasslike leaves may appear again in fall, similar to Muscari, but don't be alarmed.
