A Fragrant Plant Combination Idea For Your Early Spring Garden

Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Winter Borders, Spring Borders


Get your landscape to burst into vivid life during the chillier months! Remember to plant a few Dwarf Irises (Iris reticulata) and Snowdrops (Galanthus) in the fall. Easy to grow, these lovely bulbous perennials will add visual drama and excitement in your winter or early spring garden. Sweetly fragrant, both plants are low maintenance, deer resistant and naturalize well. Great performers, they have won the prestigious Award of Garden Merit for their qualities. 

Plant en masse under deciduous trees or shrubs for an elegant statement!
