So as far as I know these giant crocus have finished blooming, having succumbed to the ravishes of unseasonable heat and humidity.
The crocus are the giant types, which typical bloom a bit later than the tommies and other species. But all bets are pretty much off because of the time-lapse weather sequence that went from 40s to near 80s in a matter of days. But that's the great thing about gardening - no matter how long you've been doing it, no two years are alike.
Puschkinia, or striped squill, is a tiny plant that takes a big group to make an impact. I think I planted a dozen a couple of years ago and am thinking they'd look great with aforementioned giant crocus.
|These early daffs are only around 10" tall.|
If there is one thing I've learned at this time of year it's that I have to place an order for spring blooming bulbs now before I forget. Otherwise, I'll spend next spring as I'm spending this spring--wishing I'd planted more bulbs... Enjoy!
