A Colorful Early Spring Combination

Spring Borders, Bulb Combinations, Perennial Combinations


In this spritely combo, the cobalt-blue scilla are first to bloom. This delicate-looking but sturdy little color machine produces stems supporting up to five bowl-shaped brilliant blue flowers each. The flowers emerge on still-short stems, then gradually rise to eight inches in height by maturity.

They continue to bloom for weeks as yellow Narcissus ‘Tete-a-Tete’ joins in. ‘Tete-a-Tete’ is a miniature daffodil just six inches tall, bears an abundance of short-stemmed dangling flowers with golden-yellow outer petals that curl back to highlight deeper-yellow trumpets.

It is then followed by white Narcissus ‘Ice Follies’. This medium height large-cupped daffodil is a champion naturalizer famous for its ability to “come back” each spring, often for decades in settings where it is happy. Its performance is marked by two personas: the large frilled flower cups are lemon-yellow when they open, then fade to nearly white as the flowers mature.

In this deer and rabbit resistant plant combination, all plants have won the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society for their outstanding merits!
