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.
Narcissus ‘Pink Charm’ with Cimicifuga ramosa 'Brunette'
The foliage of the Cimicifuga compliments the Narcissus foliage and flowers early in the season, and grows large enough to mask the browning Daffodil leaves. This combo would be excellent if Narcissus were interspersed more evenly.
Fall is a great time to plant bulbs and perennials!
