Ha, we can dream. I will be curious if the Alstroemeria survives your garden. They are pretty flowers. Like you I have often tried "one" plant to see if it survives here before I invest in another. I hope they all survive for you.

Linda Brazill

Alstroemeria is one of those things you see the west coast gardeners grow, so it will be fun to give it a try. And it's not like taking a chance on a tree!

Lovely choices, Linda. I rarely have my act together to order, and then plant in a timely manner, so it's more impulse buying or keeping my eye out for something that I really want. That, of course, limits my choices greatly.

Linda Brazill

I'm not nearly as good ordering in time for fall planting. Somehow it seems easier to buy bulbs now when I have time to look on the web because i can't be outside. Once I can be in the garden I always leave it too late to get the bulbs I want to plant at the end of the season.

I have Nectaroscordum tripedale and I agree, it would looked fantastic with 'Landini' if they had bloomed at the same time.


The lilies look so graceful mixed in with the woodland plantings. I always feel like they need to be stuffed into a flower border and I like your look much better!
I have two pots of alstroemeria overwintering in the garage. I just wasn't brave enough to risk them outside, but might risk a division in the spring. They were just too tempting to pass up!

I didn't know there was a source for snowdrops in the green. Everything I've read says that is a much more successful way to plant them but I'd not seen them sold that way and planted a few bulbs a couple years ago. They've not been very successful. Perhaps I should bulk up my collection with a few from Carolyn's.

Linda Brazill

If the plant bulks up enough in one season maybe i will bring a piece indoors to overwinter as a backup.

Linda Brazill

Carolyn sells hers online in Dec. and you can sign up to be notified. They are very expensive. Hitch Lyman of Temple Nursery sells them by catalog and you have to get that in advance. Used to cost $5. You can probably find his address on line. My double snowdrops and Magnet variety were fall bulbs and they have done very well. Mostly you won't find unusual ones to plant that way.
