Bulb Backlog.

last week i finally finished planting my bulbs. definitely late, but the majority of them were still in very good condition so i hope some will grow. here's what i've done:

  • "petrel" narcissus (i planted the first 25 in december)
    • (6) between the iris clumps off the corner of the deck (two groups of three)
    • (5) under the sunroom window between iris and pineapple sage, towards back of the bed
    • (5) between the nandina, under the master bedroom window
    • (5) in the driveway bed between liriope clumps north of the rose
    • (5) in the driveway bed by the gate

  • "Johann Strauss" tulips
    • (10) in front of the iris clumps off the corner of the deck (two groups of five)
    • (5) under the sunroom window in front of the narcissus "petrels"
    • (5) with the petrels in the driveway bed between liriope clumps
    • (5) in the driveway bed on the south side of the rose

  • tulipa turkestanica (17 were planted in december) -- (6) along the walkway near the porch, side closest to the house

  • t. tarda
    • (15) in a semicircle around the rose in the driveway bed (three groups of five)
    • (11) along the front walk*

  • t. batalinii "bright gem" (13 were planted in december)
    • (6) between the t. tarda around the rose (two groups of three?)
    • (6) along the front walk*

  • t. kolpakowskiana (13 were planted in december) -- (10) along the front walk*
* this is an approximate representation of the tulip layout along the front walk -- definitely not to scale. the tulips are planted in with the existing liriope.
