Don’t you love finding a new flower to add to your garden? Or at least seeing a new flower you haven’t seen before!?! I love that there are so many variations in height, color, fullness, details in the blooms…the list goes on and on. Planting a new addition in your garden is even more exciting when it’s one you’ve never seen before! I think it is fun and keeps my garden interesting by adding new flowers every year.
I finally chose to add a flower bulb to my garden last year that I had seen numerous times before but never actually planted in my own yard. Last fall I added the Allium Shubertii, and I was so thrilled this June when they appeared! It was so much cooler than the pictures! P.S. Always read the description before you buy!
Here are a few ‘new’ bulbs that I am contemplating for this fall:
- A beautiful rose/peony-looking tulip: Zizanie Double Tulip
- A unique hyacinth which I love and need to add more of: Hollyhock Hyacinth
- The less common, unique-looking daffodils: Butterfly Daffodil Super Mixture
- New colors of iris to add to my water garden: Louisiana Iris Deluxe Mixture
Will I get all 4? Probably! What do you think of my choices? Have you been looking for something new and interesting to add to your garden?
