Colorful Spring Mix

A colorful spring mix of early bulbs will be a welcomed sight after winter. An abundance of yellow and gold narcissi and daffodils are always a delight.

Late Summer Color

Choose plants that will light up a late summer and fall garden with orange, red and gold. Amber heleniums and golden crocosmias are two that will add color when summer is ending.

Fall Colors

Fall color for a garden is usually added with berries and fruits of rich reds, oranges, yellows and browns of dying leaves.

Snowdrops and Cyclamen

Snowdrops are an essential part of the winter garden, one of the earliest flowers to bloom in late winter. They are perfect companions for hellebores, cyclamen, winter flowering shrubs or heathers.
