Joyful early bloomer!
Apr 21, 2015 | By John M Wheatley
This very short but very yellow bloomer is the very first color to POP in my backyard. I have a heavily shaded large garden that gets very filtered light. The leaf is very interesting, but the flower is charming!
Strong color & EARLY bloomer!
Jun 29, 2015 | By John M Wheatley
Beautiful yellow--think strong and clear, like a buttercup on steroids! This gem is in bloom way before the other plants are even beginning to break through the ground. I have these naturalized in a mostly shaded area and they are a delightful little spot of color very early in my garden. Bulbs are so easy to plant that I've ordered 90 more--and planning to have my very young grandson help with the planting. Starting him in the garden at 4 years old seems about right & we will call these tiny beauties "Garett's flowers!" And the handsome green leaf the bloom sits on top of has an interest even after the pretty, bright yellow is gone. A very kind neighbor lives just across the street; when my bulbs arrive, I'm planning to plant 30 in her beds. She will love them and I'll be able to see them blooming too. This is definitely my find of gardening!

These are a brighter and more solid carpet of yellow than the picture shows. My husband's favorite!
First blooms of the season
Apr 12, 2017 | By Jess Roth
If you anxiously await the arrival of spring blooms then these little fellas will get the season started. They are small, short bloomers that resemble a dandelion (your decision whether that is good or bad). These were advertised to plant along with daffodils but they bloom weeks before. They naturalize easily on their own but it is also easy to harvest seeds from the dead blooms and germinate your own.
