Spring-blooming bulbs are some of the easiest and most rewarding plants available to extend the flowering season in our gardens. Spring-blooming bulbs are natural companions for lawns, perennials, and groundcovers. Colorful flowers wake up the landscape, and grasses and perennials will hide the fading bulb foliage as the season progresses. The early-season flowers bring a smile to the faces of winter-weary gardeners, and also provide vital early season nectar and pollen for native bees, honeybees, and early-to-emerge butterflies. Extend your bloom time by planting bulbs in fall with early-, mid-, and late-spring flowers. Our unique fall-planted bulbs are chosen for their ability to multiply and spread, brightening your spring season for years to come.
