This mix originated in the backyard of our Dutch supplier, who wanted to plant a shady, root-filled area with a variety of small bulbs. He was fretting over a design when inspiration struck: Why not save time and effort by putting 4 or 5 different bulbs in each planting hole? The white, pink, blue, and yellow stars, bells, and goblets that appeared the following spring were magical, and because the bulbs increase by offsets or self-sowing, the display gets better every year. Includes Anemone blanda, Galanthus, Hyacinthoides, Ipheion, Ornithogalum, Puschkinia, Chionodoxa, Crocus, Muscari, and Allium moly for easy-care color from late winter to early summer. You'll see a joyful succession of flowers, from the earliest Snowdrops and Species Crocus to the Spanish Bluebells and Lily Leek (Allium) of late spring. Although bloom times can vary widely because no two springs are the same, the bulbs will bloom generally in the following sequence beginning in early spring: Galanthus, Crocus, Chionodoxa, Puschkinia, Ipheion, Anemone blanda, Ornithogalum, Muscari, Hyacinthoides, and Allium moly. Most are under 8″ tall. Not labeled. 100 bulbs cover 9–10 sq ft.
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.
