Elegant Companions Of Spring Plants – Only a handful of open bulbs grow to a good size. They embody Solomon’s seal (Polygonatum), that flowers in late open and early summer and likes a shadowy or semi-shaded site, and a crown imperials. Grown in 3 colors – yellow, orange, or low red – a climax imperials are during their best in midst to late open in a semi-shady or balmy spot.
While a climax imperials are really imposing, a Solomon’s sign is cool, quiet, and elegant. Both bear their flowers good above belligerent level, so they demeanour best if they are underplanted with a pile of low-growing plants in interrelated colors that flower during a same time.
Pansies and forget-me-nots do this purpose well, though double daisies or aubretia are viable alternatives. The climax imperials and a Solornon’s sign flower in their pots for several years. After flowering, let a dirt dry out and a leaflet die down.
Both these arrangements are planted in swagged terracotta pots. To dive a weathering process, we can paint yoghurt on a pot holding a climax imperials. The yoghurt attracts moss and lichen, that demeanour generally effective on pots with lifted patterns.
