As of 9/15/11 it will be the start of fall planting for spring flowers! I just purchased some very beautiful flowers from Direct Gardening and cannot wait to plant them! Also this was my first time ordering and I was unaware that you receive free gifts with your purchase! I spent only $50 and will receive all of the below items and the free items included were 10 Dutch Iris bulbs, 3 Bouquet Tulip, 3 Windflower, and 6 Grape Hyacynth! That is a great incentive to go back and buy more in my opinion!
These Purple Lilies grow up to 6 feet tall and are named "Purple Prince": I can't wait to photograph these! Photos are courtesy of the Direct Gardening website:
Aristocracy". They bloom in the springtime and have the dreamy and magical look to them.
This Iris is named "Copatonic" and has the beautiful brownish red-ish orange colors all throughout. I've suddenly become so interested in these unique looking Iris's!
I ordered a few of this beautiful blue beauty named "Blutique" and I know for a fact that my grandmother and Mother will absolutely love this one. The blue and white are so unique and it almost looks like it was painted.
I just discovered the names of these interesting tulips: They are called "Tulip Quartet, Parrot" and they include five amazing bulbs of each color. I never had blue tulips before so I am SUPER excited to plant these. Oh hurry up with the mail already!! hehe! I looked up the White Parrot style online and found that many brides use them in their wedding bouquets. Love these!! Now if only there was a website to design your flowerbeds with actual pictures of flowers.... that would be great.
What are your favorite springtime flowers?
