Product Details

Product Details

The Colorful Carpet 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.

This mix is not labeled by individual variety. It is intended to make a carpet of overlapping colors, although if you wish to plant groups of the same variety together, the bulbs and corms look different enough so that you should be able to sort them out.

These bulbs and corms are quite small and should be planted only 2-3" deep. Plants have a greater impact when spaced 2" apart, but this is not a hard and fast rule. You can plant them in any arrangement you wish. A hand trowel easily scoops out a planting hole that holds about 5, but you can quickly dig a trowel into the ground and pop a single bulb in, or plant in any sized group, between perennials, along a walk, or in the grass.

Diminutive grassy foliage sets off the flowers. Foliage browns and melts away without making a mess, and disappears completely under the emerging foliage of perennials. If you just leave them alone - don't deadhead or cut back - these plants will often self-sow, popping up charmingly in unexpected places and increasing over the years.




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.


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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


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.

Delightful collection

I purchased these bulbs and planted them in the fall of 2019. It's now Spring 2020 and I am being rewarded for my efforts. The variety of blooms is charming and I am even enjoying the wait to see what blooms next. I live in Michigan (zone 5) and these bulbs are some of the first blooms of the year. I love them and will be ordering more to fill in the "carpet" effect. (If I could add a photo, I would.) Thanks

Lovely mixture

I have not yet seen the full range of bulbs come up, having just planted this in the fall, but those that have already come up are just lovely. After the familiar snowdrop and crocus, I am seeing flowers I have never seen before, each one lovely. I highly recommend this mix! I am going to buy it again and plant more of this lovely collection.

Great Spring Mix

I planted these down a narrow strip down my driveway mixed with daffodils and tulips and have been rewarded with a great progression of exciting different shapes and blooms. I’m thinking of more places to plant another round in the fall.

Hope this works...

I just received the shipment of these bulbs and hope they work out. There is no growing guide included or attached/linked to the listing, and no way to distinguish one bulb from another. I've looked up the growing guide for each one separately, but I still don't know which is which. I'm going to do my best, but a sketch of the bulb types, and the order in which to put them in what depth of planting hole would have been helpful.

I am sorry you did not realize the bulbs in this collection are not labeled, as this information is noted in the product details on the full product screen. I will be contacting you via email with more information.
