These natives of Greece and Asia Minor are the best companion perennials for spring flowering bulbs. Their dark green, segmented, leathery, evergreen leaves make a fine backdrop for spring bulb flowers. Their nodding, showy 2"-4" long lasting, bowl-shaped flowers come in a range of colors from dark plum purple through pink, cream, yellow to green, often with an attractive dusting of spots. They grow best in shade to part sun, in rich well-drained soil with adequate moisture and are close to being critter proof.  Please note:  we have tried to indicate plug size on each item.  This is the minimum size of the root stock and items you receive may be larger. 

Our pollinators are so important to the sustainability of our gardens and food crops for insect and birds and if each of us participates in healthy gardening practices and chooses some of the pollinator attracting plants, we can collectively make a HUGE difference.
