Micki J. Shelton from muskogeephoenix said that It’s time to think about fall gardening for spring blooms. Of course, tulips are a must since I have a rich 20-year history with Holland tulips. Lately though, I’ve thought about more variety and a Crayola box of colors in my front and back gardens.
The new fall planting catalogs show a variety of spring blooms to enhance your garden. The K.van Bourgondien magazine took inspiration from wine labels to name their choices, including Cabernet, Chantilly, Moscato, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Sangria and Zinfandel. The flower names mimic the color of many wines.
Other choices had less intoxicating names. So, I chose a Mount Everest Giant Snowdrop, a Hibiscus Holy Grail, a fringed Tulip Raspberry Ripple, a Butterfly Daffodil Zinzi and a Blushing Parrot Tulip, named for tropical birds.
