Right now we’re headed to Westerville, Ohio, to see a ravishing show created by Marlene Suter. When she emailed in these pictures, she launched them by saying merely, “I like spring bulbs, and plant about 2,000 every year in my gardens.” Two thousand every year! That’s fairly unimaginable—and a LOT of labor placing all of these bulbs within the floor every year. However as you’ll see, the outcomes are value it.
‘Delight Combine’ is made up of a number of colours of Darwin hybrid tulips (Tulipa hybrid, Zones 3–8), which is the group that tends to be one of the best at perennializing.
This mattress contains ‘Crimson Queen’ Japanese maple (Acer palmatum ‘Crimson Queen’, Zone 5–9), ‘Carnival’ hedge maple (Acer campestre ‘Carnival’, Zones 4–8), pink ‘Ollioules’ tulips (Tulipa ‘Ollioules’, Zones 3–8), and white ‘Thalia’ daffodils (Narcissus ‘Thalia’, Zones 3–8). I like the best way the colours within the mattress within the foreground are repeated within the beds behind it, drawing the attention into the backyard and unifying the entire backyard.
The bridge results in beds with a number of Japanese maples and teams of daffodils.
The beds alongside the entrance stroll are edged with ‘Sherwood Purple’ phlox (Phlox stolonifera ‘Sherwood Purple’, Zones 3–8) and clouds of blue forget-me-nots (Myosotis sylvatica, Zones 3–8; usually performs as a biennial or cool season annual), with white and yellow daffodils glowing behind them.
Within the entrance beds, teams of 10 to 12 tulips and daffodils are scattered amongst perennials and shrubs. I like the best way the clumps of flowering bulbs create factors of colour within the midst of the opposite crops.
Glowing ‘Spryng’ tulips, ‘Golden Echo’ daffodils, and Magic Carpet spirea (Spirea japonica ‘Walbuma’, Zones 3–8) with new orange foliage.
Woodland path with bluebells (Mertensia virginica, Zones 3–9), ferns, Epimedium, and spring bulbs.
Entrance of the woodland backyard
‘Camargue’ and ‘Elegant Woman’ tulips, bleeding coronary heart (Dicentra spectabilis, Zones 2–8), and fothergilla (Fothergilla gardenii, Zones 5–8)
‘Queen of the Evening’ tulips, and lancifolia hosta (Hosta lancifolia, Zones 3–8)
