In the Colorblends display garden, which was originally laid out by Dutch designer Jacqueline van der Kloet, the emphasis is on naturalistic plantings: bulbs planted the way nature might do it. To keep maintenance to a minimum and mimic how bulbs often grow in the wild, most of the plantings are in turf. And to provide a long season of interest, they typically consist of bulbs that bloom in succession.
The response of visitors to these plantings has been so enthusiastic that we felt we should offer them as complete kits to all of our customers. The bulbs are ordered and shipped in crate quantities, with each variety bagged separately and labeled. Basic instructions are included. Prefer to order the bulbs in different quantities? All of the components can be purchased on their own.
Please note: If you plant bulbs in grass, you must wait to mow until late spring or early summer, when the bulb foliage has completely yellowed. This means waiting to mow until the grass is very tall.
