Florissa’s Choice – Top Picks for Fall 2016

Fall bulbs promise a beautiful spring and it’s time to plant them now.  Here are some wonderful new varieties to tuck into the earth this season and anticipate all through the winter.

Florissa’s Choice: Joyful Hearts

Surround yourself with the beauty of Joyful Hearts. This Colourful Companion features a duet of double early tulips in unique soft coppery shades and warm lavender pink. The magnificent flowers, filled with layer upon layer of fragrant petals, look more like peonies than tulips. Ideal for containers in a prominent location. Grows to 45 cm (18”).

Ambassador Allium

Ambassador is one of the taller, stately alliums with robust stalks and huge, rich purple flower heads, up to 7” inches across. The sweetly scented florets appear in the hundreds between May and June, and are long lasting, for up to 5 weeks into July. Perfect for pollinators. Dried flower heads are also attractive in floral arrangements. Grows to 100 cm (40”).

Eye Catcher Iris Reticulata

A gorgeous breakthrough variety by Canadian hybridizer, Alan McMurtrie.  Eye Catcher features snow white flowers with indigo blue flames and a brilliant yellow ridge that spills from each fall. Dwarf Iris may be small in stature, but their early spring blooms are large and showy. Plant them en masse, meandering along walkways, and naturalizing in rock gardens. They are very hardy, drought tolerant, and deer resistant. Grows to 10 cm (4”).
