TULIPA SYLVESTRIS this is an extremely fragrant, delicate, and naturalizing beauty. Fingers crossed for buckets of them next season!

FRITILLARIA MELEAGRIS I was so afraid these would be finicky in my Midwestern climate but they did well in all the nooks and crannies I snuck them into. Can’t wait to add more of these from Van Engelen!

AQUILEGIA VULGARIS (?) Lost the tag for this beauty, not sure of the exact variety. I’m guessing a white Nora Barlow? Anyway, beautiful and carefree. I’m starting some seeds now (in Early Summer) fingers crossed for buckets full of these beauties in spring 2017!
