A good GC for me would stock a larger variety of plants than is usually seen. Too many have the same mass-produced, latest fashion plants at high prices.
Until this happens I'll stick with nurseries and plant fairs.
Go for some species as Berghill suggests Dove. You could get a new variety when they cross. Call it Dove and sell bulbs for £400 a piece on ebay.
It's spring here
Very warm and big changes since the NYD count. A few aconites and snowdrops, more hellebores. Some fairly tall narcissi but no heads turned down yet

Salvia is a genus Dove, officinalis, microphylla etc are species,

They come from cool Northern Europe. In the Uk if we want to grow tropical plants we have a heated greenhouse or conservatory.

Salvia as Edd says. Not got a clue which one of about 5000
True Gemma, I can see the leaves of sternbergia emerging from the heap and some narcissi. Haven't seen any snowdrops yet, any day now maybe
