Nothing adds joy to the mixture of color and texture that comes with spring blooming perennials. Spring flowers emerge from hibernation against the cold and harshness of winter to signal a renewing of life and hope. Every house can add a positive outlook to the neighborhood year after year by planting spring-blooming perennials of both the bulb and woody varieties.
Bulbs are the first to bloom. Planting snowdrop bulbs in the fall ensures a crop of pale blossoms that announce the coming of spring. These late-winter/early-spring messengers of the beauty to come, stand three to eight-inches high to show well against any dark backdrop.
