When ordering spring bulbs, (Now is the time!) consider planting some lesser-known bulbs like
windflower (Anemone blanda) and grape hyacinths (Muscari spp.). Windflower has lovely
daisy-like flowers in a variety of pastel colors. It grows 6-8 inches tall and is hardy to Zone
5. Grape hyacinths are vivid dark blue and make a gorgeous display when planted in masses. They
only grow to about 9 inches and make a great groundcover planting in front of or around larger
spring bulbs like bright red tulips and yellow daffodils.
