(6-18" tall) The Spring Parade Bulb Collection will put on a show in your spring garden! In mid-spring, a generous number of Grape Hyacinth (Muscari) bulbs will bloom in vivid blue, creating the perfect foreground for the collection. Heirloom 'Gipsy Princess' Hyacinth contrasts with lovely butter-yellow blooms and intoxicating fragrance; these bee-friendly blooms emerge mid-spring and are exceptionally long-lasting in the garden. In late spring, the second act arrives! Easy and dependable Giant Snowdrops raise their beautiful nodding white flowers. The Poet's Daffodil (Narcissus actaea) is another fragrant heirloom bulb with bright white flowers surrounding a yellow cup edged in red. With a halo of ruffled petals on tall stems, 'Sunlover' Double Late Tulip warms the late spring garden in vivid shades of golden yellow and tangerine orange. True to its name, this parade of spring blooms is sure to delight. All but the tulips are perennial and will return for several years; Daffodils and Giant Snowdrops will also naturalize to spread over time. All but the Tulips are deer resistant, and most are resistant to deer and squirrels as well. Plant Grape Hyacinth and Giant Snowdrops 5" deep, and plant Hyacinth, Daffodil and Tulip bulbs 6" deep.
