following bulbs should be planted as soon as possible after
purchase since they are perishable:
Anemone blanda - will grow well in partial shade, their delicate daisy-like blooms in blue, pink, lilac, or white, nodding above
blue-green foliage. Soak tubers overnight before planting.
Eranthis - is a perfect choice to plant in sun to part shade
under and around deciduious trees and shrubs. Their silky yellow
blooms 2 to 6 inches tall with deeply fringed foliage will
delight the eye. Soak tubers overnight before planting.
Galanthus - or Snowdrops is another bulb that enjoys partial
shade. Plant bulbs 3 to 4 inches apart in clusters. We carry
four varieties of this sign of early spring. (The entire genus
is protected by CITES; we carry only nursery propagated stock.)
Swansons features over 14 varieties of this sun-loving, easy-to-grow bulb. A showy addition to any garden, alliums range in color
from whites, yellows, pinks to blues, lilacs, and deep maroon.
Growing from 8 to more than 40 inches tall, they are suitable for containers
as well as borders and beds. Almost all make excellent cut flowers. What’s not to love?
