Are you already dreaming of which spring bulbs you’ll be planting for next year? Take a look at the 5 beautiful spring bulb varieties I planted this year from Breck’s Bulbs and the amazing color and interest they brought to my garden.
I am so excited to share the spring bulb varieties I received from Breck’s Bulbs last fall and how beautifully they bloomed in my garden this season. Do you remember last summer when I shared the amazing Breck’s Bulbs bare-root roses, Cafe au Lait dahlias, and Chocolate Eyeliner lilies I grew in my cottage garden?

Or how about the amazing amaryllis bulbs I grew 2 winters ago?
I think it’s pretty obvious that I am a HUGE fan of anything from Breck’s Bulbs and this season is no exception.
Are you ready to see what I planted in my garden?
Breck’s Bulbs “Monet Hyacinth Mixture”
This is the first time I have planted hyacinth bulbs in my garden and I keep asking myself “What have you been waiting for?”.
This sweet-smelling mix of rose, pink, violet, pale lavender, and white brightened up an otherwise dreary garden in the earliest days of spring.
These stunning spring hyacinths are perfect for borders, containers, and the cutting garden, and bloom early to mid-spring.
The fact that these bulbs can thrive anywhere from partial light to full sun means that you’re sure to find the perfect spot for them in your garden.
Hyacinths are also deer resistant which is one less thing to worry about.
These hyacinth spring bulbs will reach a height of 8-10 inches.
Hardiness zone 4-8.
Breck’s Bulbs “Three Months of Daffodils”
How do you get your daffodil bulbs to start very early and end late in the spring?
Choose the right mix of bulbs of course!
Breck’s Bulbs offers a 50-bulb blend that contains the perfect combination of early, middle, and late-season daffodils to extend the blooming season and create an all-spring display.
Varieties for this extended mix were selected not only for bloom time but also for color, form, and sometimes fragrance.
You will receive fully guaranteed daffodil bulbs that will multiply and return with vigor year after year.
Spring daffodils are deer resistant and can be divided every three or so years so you can grow them in other spaces around your garden.
This variety of spring bulbs is the gift that keeps on giving!
Plant your daffodil bulbs in partial shade to full sun.
Hardiness zone 3-8.
Breck’s Bulbs Tulip Mixes for the Cut Flower Garden
Rather than growing spring tulips around my cottage garden like I did with my other gorgeous spring bulbs, I decided to grow them in my raised beds and use these flowers to cut and bring into the house or share with friends.
My Breck’s Bulb tulip mixes are hand-selected and make it effortless when it comes to creating the perfect bouquets with these color-coordinated tulip mixes.
Raspberry Sorbet Tulip Mixture
This gorgeous raspberry sorbet tulip mixture from Breck’s Bulbs was hand-selected for its chic colors and muted tones.
This variety definitely adds a sense of romance to outdoor spaces.
The raspberry sorbet tulip mixture features various tulip types and flower forms in a range of pinks that open on sturdy, 18-24″ stems from early to mid-spring.
Here’s a picture of what the mixture will look like in another week or so. The white tulips are taking a little longer to bloom.
Plant these spring tulips bulbs in partial shade to full sun. Soil should be well-drained.
Hardiness zone 3-8.
Creamy Lavender Flan Tulip Mixture
This is the most incredible color combo! I seriously can’t take my eyes off of them.
The creamy lavender flan tulip mixture features various tulip types and flower forms in a range of pastel colors that open on sturdy, 18—24″ stems from mid to late spring.
These soft, romantic pastel colors of spring blend so beautifully in the garden and in flower arrangements.
Plant these spring tulip bulbs in partial shade to full sun. Soil should be well-drained.
Hardiness zone 3-8.
Here’s a picture of what the colors will look more like when the bulbs are fully blooming. We’re almost there!
Breck’s Bulbs “Sorbet Peony”
These gorgeous Breck’s Bulbs Sorbet Peonies bloom from mid to late spring, so they haven’t bloomed yet but this is a sneak peek of what they will look like when they do.
Full and large (6–7″) bomb-type double flowers consist of alternating layers of pink and white petals, and the peony’s foliage changes from green to red in the fall.
Plant in partial shade to full sun in well-drained, deep, fertile soil.
And they are deer resistant!
Breck’s Bulbs Byzantinus Gladiolus
The tiny, cerise to magenta blooms on this perennial look more like orchids than gladioli, don’t you think?
Bloom time for these is early summer and this is what they will look like. They’ll grow 20-24 inches in height and are deer resistant.
Unlike most gladioli, you plant these bulbs in the fall rather than the spring. It grows more and more each year with even larger, more beautiful clumps.
They look beautiful in pots as well.
This is a sturdy plant, so its stems do not need staking. Plant in partial shade to full sun in well-drained soil.
Hardiness zone 6-9
