A Striking Spring Border with Tulip 'Apricot Beauty', Muscari & Daffodil 'Geranium'

Spring Borders, Bulb Combinations, Perennial Combinations


A soft and tender combination in which the pastel colors of Tulip 'Apricot Beauty' have been superbly interplanted with ivory-white daffodils and ocean-blue Grape Hyacinth (Muscari armeniacum). A beautiful way to enliven your beds or border in mid spring. They are underplanted with a low-growing ground cover, Siberian Bugloss (Brunnera macrophylla), that blossoms simultaneously, creating an airy blue sea from which these elegant spring flowering bulbs seem to emerge.
