Today we’re revisiting Brenda Addington’s garden in Suwanee, Georgia. Yesterday we saw the bolder side of her bulb plantings, in reds and daffodil-yellows. Today we see the softer side in shades of pink, including my personal favorite tulip of all time, ‘Angelique’. It’s like a cross between a pale pink tulip and a luscious white peony! Heaven.
In case you missed what Brenda said yesterday, here it is again: “This past December, I planted some 3,000+ bulbs, mainly tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils, in my garden. Since I live in the south in Zone 7b, I treat many of my tulips as annuals in order to have an explosion of vibrant blooms in the spring. Having planted over 2,000 tulips in December 2010, hand-troweled I might add, I decided to use an auger this time. Wow! What a difference it made. I saved a lot of time, finishing most of my bulb planting in just two days. Also, my back and hamstrings definitely benefited from the use of the auger.
“It’s been an early ‘Spring Fever’ here for the last few weeks. much earlier than normal due to our very warm temperatures this spring. I’ve been enjoying the splendor and color of my bulbs due to all of my hard work. Even though the addition of spring bulbs in my landscape is short lived, it is indeed spectacular when they are in full bloom!”
