"La Belle Epoque" is the French name for the period around the turn of the nineteenth century. The time of art nouveau and art deco, where both fashion and architecture were heavily influenced by the lines and shapes of nature. This stunning peony-like tulip reflects the esthetic of that golden era and runs the color gamut from copper gold to caramel brown and from salmon apricot to silvery pink. It has a very long blooming time and increases in beauty as it matures. Tulip La Belle Epoque is perfect for bouquets and vases and is often in short supply due to its popularity, so be sure to order quickly!
This tulip looks a bit like a rose. A double Jumbo Darwin hybrid, it is very light yellow with green accents and pencil-thin red edges. Akebono, meaning dawn or daybreak in Japanese, has a faint, sweet fragrance and loves to grow in full sunlight.
This pretty and classic crocus sports dark purple flame buds on a pure white petal. When it opens, its insides turn out to have a beautiful soft light-purple glow. Crocus Spring Beauty grows in early spring and will enchant your garden with that first delightful fragrance of the new spring season.
A beautiful daffodil with layers and layers of frilly peach-and-cream petals. White, cream, apricot, yellow and orange come together to make this a very special and sought-after flower. Peach Cobbler blooms in mid spring and has a delicious scent.
A beautiful white allium, and an American native to boot. Lots and lots of small flowers make up a big fluffy ball of white flowers with pink to lavender stamens. Easy and undemanding, it blooms in late spring to early summer. Plant Allium Graceful Beauty closely together in large numbers to get the best effect.
This mid spring flowering, deliciously fragrant daffodil starts its bloom with soft double creamy white flowers. When it matures the color changes to pure white, a stunning sight which will grace your garden for a long time, as this variety is known for its long blooming time. Narcissus White Explosion is a perennial and left undisturbed it will come back year after year.
The delicate “Lion King” Iris brings wonder and whimsy to your late spring garden. Its dark maroon colors with dark orange and golden yellow contrast make it look like a flock of exotic butterflies have permanently landed in your flower beds. And good news: They are deer resistant.
A mix of pretty little miniature tulips, also known as Wildflower tulips. A great characteristic of Clusiana is that they can also grow in warmer areas of the United States, as they don’t necessarily need a cold period. This tulip starts blooming in late spring and will continue all the way to early summer. If you plant them in a sunny spot, they will come back even better next spring.
