Well, that is definitely a Tulip.
Another use for the smaller stones.
I did not make this path though, it is probably Victorian or even earlier, but I have done similar things elsewhere.
The bulb looks awfully like a Muscari. There are white ones like that.
Certainly not, and not being evasive. I honestly cannot remember what they were or whether or not they survived.
At that sort of value I would guess they were Hepaticas, in which case they probably died.
You mean rocks like these?
Runnybeak. Not sure now what the seedlings were. Such a long time ago. The bee larva hatched and flew away in the spring. I do know that much.
Comes in various forms. V. opulus sterilis is the one which has the biggest flowers and is generally the one sold as the Snowball Tree. Then there is the standard one which has red berries and V.o. xanthocarpa which has yellow berries. We have all three.
When did you take the picture?
If it is flowering now, then it is awfully early for a Hydrangea. In that case I would say it was a Viburnum.
Phlox subulata/douglasii flower now too. Close up of the flowers etc. would help no end.
