|I've recently been adding different bulbs to pots .. usually, most of my plants are 'garden plants' just because I find moving pots around with 'spent' growth to areas where they can't be seen a bit time consuming .. but last year I planted some 'Blue Stars' bulbs in a spare ceramic pot & now that it's Spring here in Australia, I'm glad I did! |
Here's a pic of the result, with a bit of photo editing .. I may become more of a 'potty gardener' than I am already!
Sorry, I do not know the correct name for these little bulbs.

|That is beautiful Dianne. Would they be Ipheion? http://garden.org/plants/searc...|
I'm going to see if I can find some of those for some of my containers. Thank you so much for the idea.

|Dianne they are Ipheion uniflorum. Sorry don't know how to link from a Kindle. Have you smelled them? Wonderful fragrance!|

|Dianne that is very pretty it is such a cherrful color. I have a very large patio and I do a three season plantings in pots|
I plant spring bulbs, perennials, and summer bulbs (oriental lilies) and to extend through the summer I plant annual seeds and a few cheap annual plants from the nursery

I do similar in my deck planters. I often sprinkle white Allysum seed around the periphery which helps to fill and add a nice fragrance.

|David I tried that this year too. I also added that crazy Sedum Acre. It filled my need for early color cover until the Allysum was ready to get going and bloom.|
