Muscari or grape hyacinths begin showing up at Springwell Gardens usually by mid March. This year they came on a little later.
John Scheepers. They have a great selection to choose from, (as well as lots of other springtime flowering bulbs). Muscari go into the ground in early November and usually bloom for about 3-4 weeks in the spring. Which makes these great flowers to use for mid March through mid April weddings.
Here they are in a bouquet with white ranunculus, black-eyed anemones and white fringe tulips- just beautiful.

The garden beds are starting to crank out some real beauties! It's so exciting to watch tall stems of white and purple anemones unfurl to show off dark velvety centers. .Hellebores are starting to mellow to a mint green, and bridal wreath spirea and flowering almonds have reached their peak. These are just some of the flowers of spring!

The pansies had a rough time this year with all the cold, but they are finally starting to shine. Muscari was slow to start by a couple of weeks, but they too are now taking off..
