"We bought these 3 or 4 years ago to line our front walkway and are excited every year to see them coming up. They are very early and absolutely beautiful. We started off with the 10, covering about 6-8 feet (5 on each side of the walkway) and have split so many new bulbs off over these few years to be at the point that we'll have to start finding new places to plant them. Just resist the urge to cut back the foliage after they finish flowering so they can store ""food"" in those bulbs. If you cut them, they won't come back. We plant annual flowers around them to lend some color. Do pinch off the flowers after they're done. Beautiful, easy plants."
Love these guys just got them planted and already everyone are coming up. Usually you have that one that just doesn't work out. I can't wait to see the colors.
