Cheri Ong is taking us along to see the spring. Butchart Gardens This garden in British Columbia is famous for its towering displays of spring bulbs and annuals, which fill the entire space with a giant burst of color. One of the most popular parts of the garden is the sunken garden, and often we see pictures taken from above ground looking down on the plants. But today Cherry is taking us into the garden and looking up and around at the beauty that is there.
Combined bushes of tulips (Tulipa hybrids, zones 3-8) and late daffodils (Narcissus hybrids, zones 3-8) bloom together. The front tulips are underplanted with forget-me-nots (Myosotes SylvaticaZones 3–8) to add a layer of blue around large tulip flowers.
