Perennial flowers anchor our landscapes, but can take quite awhile before the blooms of some types appear each season. But what if the flowers of a different plant were to ride above those leaves early in the season, and then magically disappear just before the perennial’s flowers show up? That’s what happens when you drop the right Spring bulbs into the right kind of perennial.

Fall is a great time to plant spring blooming bulbs and perennials!
