Aunt Debbi (Aunt Debbi's Garden) has some of these and posted about her blooms a few weeks ago. On the way back from Canton Trade Days 2 weeks ago I also saw some along the side of the highway. However, I have never seen the bulbs in the garden centers.
I got these as pass-alongs from my Mother's neighbor. Mother would tell me stories about growing up in the country, and having these jonquils on either side of the road that led to her house. What a sweet memory! I thought the only way to get them was as a pass-along, but my wonderful neighbor's sister gave me a website where you can order them! (Thank you Jane and Sally!) Old House Gardens sells Heirloom Bulbs. You can buy them online, or they have a catalog you can order--which I immediately did! It came in the mail this weekend, and I will tell you there are lots of good things to order. Even if you don't want to place an order, it has very good information in it about all types of bulbs.
"The sweetest smelling flower your grand-
mother had in her garden...It's clusters of nickle-sized flowers with tiny cups seem made for fairies."
Now, who could resist these precious little flowers!
Do you have a favorite Spring bulb?
