Black and Gold. A rare black hyacinth with double-early tulips, both fragrant. *Yes* to this combination again next year….
Making the Rounds….Breaking Beauty
I love this time of year, visiting all my container garden clients as I do every Friday. The planters we installed last fall, break loose and fill porches, terraces and pool decks with color, fragrance, and frenzied foliage. The riot of color only lasts for a couple of weeks. But it’s worth every moment.
Keukenhof Gardens, spring. Yellow and blue hyacinths streaming through the park.
Keukenhof Gardens, Lisse, Netherlands. Over 8 million bulbs are planted every year - it is the world’s largest display of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths - blooming March through May.
