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.

The height of the tulip at bloom and the Geranium makes the tulip blooms look as if they are floating in a sea of green. The foliage and purple flowers of the Geranium later mask the old tulip leaves.
Fall is a great time to plant bulbs and perennials!
