As usual, my eyes are bigger than my – well, than my ability to plant bulbs in the hard clay soil that abounds here. But here is what I have.
- More Lady Jane tulips in front of the trellis because I have so enjoyed the ones I already have
- Leucojum ‘Gravetye Giant’ in front of the autumn ferns by the trellis and among the marsh fern in the walkway bed
- Tulips ‘tarda dasystemon’ and polychroma, both yellow species, among the hostas under the maple tree.
- more narcissus ‘Sun Disc’ because I love their chalky yellow color and their small perfect blooms (not sure where to put these, I already have some under the oak tree that are supposed to bloom along with the English bluebells and occasionally do)
- more trout lilies and English bluebells under the oak tree
- more Ipheion in the walkway garden since the originals seem to have petered out
- Narcissus ‘Tete-a-tete’ in the front garden so there is some early color there
- more West Point tulips, an elegant lily-flowered yellow that persisted for years but has finally died out
- a selection of tulips from Roxbury that are destined for cutting and to fill some containers: Passionale, Tom Pouce and Elegant Lady in shades of purple, rose and pale yellow.
Note that the picture above is just a generic pretty picture from a landscaping site and reflects none of the bulbs I have planted!
