I have ordered 200 bulbs to test. In our southern climate i think they have to be chilled first to get a good bloom.
I am going to try some snapdragons in the last row of the beds.
I dont agree that all colors look good. If you go dark purple or dark red, the flowers almost disappear bc they are such dark colors. Even when you layer whitr then purple, the purple is still dark. Hard to tell if is mulch or flowers. I have one property i am going to try "lavender shades" and hopefully it wont be too dark.
