        Look at these tiny things!

            These have just started coming up within the last few days and even though I'm not a big "blue" fan I love these. They are so delicate looking yet the plants seem sturdy.

              Planted just about everywhere in my various garden beds here in Huntington Beach, CA. All seemed to succeed with flowers had since early February with still some remaining in late April. The light pastel blue flowers are a welcome sight to begin the year's seasonal displays.

                Your bulbs must be hardy as they seem to have survived one of our snowiest coldest winters in decades. They are just emerging, and I can hardly wait to see them bloom.

                  Love this little flower. The greenery that comes up looks a little like a short version of monkey grass. You may want to use it areas like you would a monkey grass such as lining a walkway or edging a flower bed. It is a very low growing plant. This is the second spring that I have had it. It has increased in volume and produces many cute little light blue flowers. It blooms very early and continues for about a month for me. I was impressed with this little flower. It requires little maintenance, and I feel like it is a very hardy flower once established.

                          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
