Bulbapalooza at the Idaho Botanical Garden

Next year we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Muriel and Diana Kirk English Garden creation at the Idaho Botanical Garden. As most gardens do, this one has grown…and grown. When we started we didn’t have a single leaf’s worth of shade. Now, the trees have pushed out some of our perennial plants and changed the makeup of many parts of the garden. In those two decades, the original bulb plantings withered away, with only a few fancy alliums making the long haul.

Over the next few weeks we will share with you the new spring bulb project. We’ve ordered more than 6000 for one border! Stay tuned. Here’s a scratchy/scribbled composite of the main choices. More on what and why, later. 

 

Lookin’ hot, eh?
