Spring Blooms in Vermont

by Amanda

Spring in Vermont is hard to predict, but the past few weeks have been sunny almost every day with a beautiful, light breeze. This is not only good for us gardeners (although we've been feverishly watering), but has also quickly brought to life many of our Spring-Blooming Bulbs, early-blooming Perennials, trees and meadows. I took a quick walk around the neighborhood today and captured several of my favorite plants. I hope you enjoy!

The common theme in gardens throughout town is Tulips, Tulips, Tulips! Below are a few of my favorite that I was able to photograph. Varieties include Perennial Darwin Tulips, Rock Garden Tulips, Lily-Flowered and more.

Tulips

Another place I visited was a house that I helped plant hundreds of Daffodils at last fall. We planted the Large Cupped Mix and the results are truly stunning - This picture does not do it justice!

Daffodils

In our test gardens at American Meadows we have an abundance of Tulips, Daffodils and other spring-bloomers, but I thought I'd share one of the earliest-blooming Perennials we have, which is this gorgeous Creeping Phlox.
