(Queen Fabiola Starflower, Starflower)

Starflower is a showy cormous perennial from the western United States that flowers in early summer. The strappy, basal leaves make an open clump and wither before or as the flower stalk appears. The flower stalk rises much higher than the leaves, topped with a cluster of up to 25 sizeable pale to deep purple-blue funnel-shaped flowers. The cluster calls to mind an ornamental onion, which is a close relative. Starflower once had the name Brodaeia laxa.

(Tulip)

What would spring be without tulips? The diversity of color, texture and interest of these hardy blooming bulbs is unparalleled in the early perennial border. They may flower in early, mid or late spring, depending on the cultivar, and are distinguished by six showy petals/tepals that curve upward to form a cup.

Tulips have a long, rich cultivation history, but were intensively hybridized and perfected by the Dutch starting in the 16th century. There are approximately 100 species and hundreds...

(Aafke Tulip, Single Early Tulip)

The single early tulip, ‘Aafke', is pink infused with ivory. Its fragrant tulips bloom in early or mid-spring and look beautiful in arrangements and spring borders. Like most hybrid tulips, ‘Aafke’ can be short-lived and is often treated as an annual.

Tulip bulbs can be eaten by small mammals, such as voles, and may require winter protection. Likewise, their sweet green tops are favored by deer, so they are not recommended for gardens that are frequented by the large, four-legged pests. Despite...

(Abba Tulip, Double Early Tulip)

The double-flowered, early-blooming ‘Abba’ is a beautiful fragrant tulip with bowl-shaped blooms of red with yellow centers. Like most hybrid tulips, it is a perennial bulb that is often treated as an annual.

Tulip bulbs are often short-lived, save some species and select cultivars, so they are often allowed to bloom for one year only and pulled before they go dormant. Their bulbs are often eaten by small mammals, such as voles, so it is wise to provide them winter protection. Their sweet...
