Very showy, pure-white double blossoms are produced several per bulb in mid fall. Best planted over a dark green ground cover such as vinca minor to highlight the blooms. Flowers spread to 4 inches across, and the bulbs naturalize readily to appear in greater number years after year. Use in beds, borders, rockeries, or containers.
A heavy bloomer, it opens 4-inch lilac rose flowers in succession on naked stems through September. Foliage develops after blooms are finished. Ideal for rock gardens, containers, or indoor culture.
The foliage comes up in the spring and resembles hostas. The blooms present in the fall and are crocus-like though larger. You can grow the bulbs indoors on a windowsill, enjoy the flowers, and then afterward plant them in the garden. They grow 12 inches high and make nice accents or can be used effectively for fronting a border. They also provide the rock garden with late-season color. Up to 8" tall.
Waterlily will be in bloom soon after planting, producing double flowers of a vibrant lavender pink hue on 6- to 12-inch stems. Foliage develops after blooming and turns to a golden yellow as it matures. Use in beds, borders, rockeries, or containers. Bulbs will naturalize for a greater show of color each fall.
In Massachusetts I use to see lots of Packman broccoli pre-started plants available at local nurseries but this year do not see any. We liked this variety since it produces lots of side shoots. It may be too late for this year to grow from seeds but what pre-started varieties could I select which has the same side shoot production as Packman.
