One dig and you’re done: flower bulbs that come back every year.
From a child’s perspective, being an adult seems amazing: no bedtime, no broccoli, no homework. Free to do as you please, go where you want and eat what you want. What could be better? But once you’re an adult you find that you wish you could go to bed at 9pm, that you actually like broccoli, and that homework has been replaced by a seemingly endless to-do list. Do laundry, buy dogfood, pick up prescriptions. And so many of the items on your list seem to come back again and again. You’ve only just checked them off and up they pop again. Why can’t everything just be “one & done”?
Effortless spring garden
Here at DutchGrown we are all about bringing joy and color into your life, not adding to your list of chores. So if you plant the flower bulbs in this blog, you’ll only have to plant them once, after which they’ll come back year after year without any effort on your part.
Yes, many flower bulbs do come back every year
There are two types of flower bulbs, annual and perennials. Annuals only bloom one season long, and you’ll have to buy new bulbs every year. Perennials, however, are in it for the long haul and once you’ve planted them, they will bloom season after season. Some of them, the so-called naturalizers, will even multiply.
Which flower bulbs come back every year?
Below I’ve made a selection of perennial flower bulbs that will bring you maximum joy for minimal effort, for many years to come.
Whether a tulip is perennial depends on the variety. For tulips that return every season, go for Darwin Hybrids like red and yellow Tulip Apeldoorn’s Elite, Emperor tulips like Tulip Orange Emperor or miniature tulips like the Miniature Tulip Naturalizing Collection.
In mid to late spring, fragrant Muscari Armeniacum blooms together with bluebells like the Spanish Bluebells Mixed Collection and alliums like yellow Allium Moly. And the perennial season ends with a bang, delivered by foxtail lilies like white Eremurus Robustus.
