|Tulipa 'Persian Pearl' in our garden this week.|
These two tulips are sure to add some color to your April days! They are both very early bloomers, do well in containers, and have perennialized well here in well drained planting medium.

|On the Hill Garden, Tulipa 'Ice Stick' are reblooming this year. They too make a great combination with Narcissus 'Tete-e-tete'. Last year, these were blooming in March! Bulbs tend to perennialize better in areas that are very dry in the summer months. Most bulbs detest wet feet, excepting a special few that are actually damp-lovers, like Camassia.|
|The purple flames on Tulipa 'Ice Stick' helps to create some beautiful spring color combinations. This unusual tulip is a Kaufmanniana Hybrid, which is 12 inches tall. HZ: 4-8.|
|The Hill Garden has really come alive in the past two weeks! The purple Phlox subulata will soon be in bloom and topped with salmon Darwin tulips. :)|
