Bulb and Perennial Combinations Bursting With Color And Character

Bulb planting season is here, and while I was doing some research for planting some bulbs in our garden, I ran across this article which may be of great assistance if you are planning to plant bulbs in parts of your garden. Researchers at Cornell University experimented with all sorts of bulbs and perennial plants and created combinations that extend the bloom season in your garden and help create lasting bursts of color and texture in your garden. They built forty four different combinations you can look at. The site has photos that show the combinations at various stages throughout the season, so you can get a feel for what the combo may look like in your garden setting. The Cornell Flower Bulb Research Program website also has a section with tips and tricks, as well as a resources page that provides links to information websites with more information. Enjoy!
