A Striking Spring Border Idea with Greigii Tulips and Muscari

Spring Borders, Bulb Combinations, Perennial Combinations


Awake your sleepy garden in mid spring with this gorgeous bulb combination! Fairly easy to replicate, even for the beginner gardener, long-lived and low care, this spectacular border includes the festive colors of two fabulous multi-flowered tulips, Tulip 'Toronto' and Tulip 'Quebec', elegantly floating atop a blue sea of Muscari armeniacum (Grape Hyacinth). You may want to also consider Tulip 'Winnipeg', another multi-flowering tulip with golden yellow petals flamed with vibrant scarlet. What a gorgeous way of celebrating the return of Spring!

 A planting idea that is ideal for beds and borders, edging, rock gardens or containers. All plants make excellent cut flowers and will look gorgeous in a vase too. Enjoy!
