Tis almost the season...
This year I'm over my Tulip mania. I've only ordered ' Duc Van Tol Rose ' " Short.sweet, and extra early" at only 5" -7" , from the early 1600-1900. before the taller T's became the favored ones.
Last year I found so much bare space under deciduous trees and shrubs . Ideal Crocus territory, so fifty C. sieberi tricolor and C.biflorus Spring beauty.
Then I remembered the Muscari Golden Fragrance that I admired at 'Joy Creek Nurscery', ten of those to try out in my yellow/ Chartreuse spring planting.
Strangly when I ordered Allium Azureum , a true blue Allium . I was told by the sales attentant that they can no longer send Alliums to WA. I've been ordering Alliums for years ! Anyway they have ways, I will have my Azureums.
