I have ordered and planted a few bulbs other than on the mountain top.
A named cultivar Redbud tree on the right contrasts with two seedling trees on the left.
When I plant bulbs, I do it in quantity per hole and drifts that sweep through a bed.
Good thing I plant daffodils. The tulip 'Negrita' I had thought was so reliable and multiplying was a no show at Client #1's this year. Lots of foliage and no flowers. Daffodils are more dependable even though I am seeing they are not fool proof in all situations.
