I planted both hyacinths and early/mid/late spring tulips last fall. Most of the bulbs I see are the tulips ... until today. Finally, 2 hyacinths have emerged.
Unfortunately ... only 2 hyancinths (out of maybe 10 or so I planted) have emerged.
For the most part I planted the bulbs all over so I could see how they fared in different areas. But in the front of the house, I actually tried a "design" thing and planted some bulbs into my heucheras. So far it looks pretty cool seeing them rise above the low leaves of the coral bells, when they bloom I'll get a better idea if this was a good thing or not.
