These are Scilla siberica, Star of Holland. They are supposed to be one of the first things to come up in the spring. I am already dreading this winter and planning ahead. I tried to find a cherry tree, but nobody would ship the one I wanted in the fall, so I will have to wait. These come up early and so do these:
Chionodoxa forbesii 'Blue Giant' or Giant Glory of the Snow. I am going to plant them under the crabapple trees in back, so I will see them right away and I will know that spring is coming.
I should save some and plant them around the mailbox. Then everyone that passes will know that spring is coming!
The best part of this bulb thing is that I am getting them all, 40 bulbs all together, for $1.93. I got a free $25.00 gift certificate in the mail. They are so sure I will be convinced this is the best place to buy bulbs, they are williing to give me that much to see how I like it.
We shall see!
