Per­fect pair­ing for tulips

Country Homes & Interiors - - GARDEN NOTES -

it’s time to plant spring-flow­er­ing bulbs and plan dis­plays for next year. tulips make a strong state­ment both in pots and bor­ders, es­pe­cially when planted with a well-matched part­ner. why not try forget-me-nots in pink, white or blue as a foil for pretty, pas­tel-coloured tulips? Fiery colours will pop more when planted against a lime green fo­liage back­drop such as eu­phor­bia

chara­cias subsp. wulfenii, and you could even sow let­tuce un­der the tulips, too! Or, plant your tulips with or­na­men­tal grasses of a sim­i­lar height. try Carex tes­tacea ‘Prairie Fire’ with the or­ange tulip ‘Monte Or­ange’.
