Perfect partners for spring bulbs
These colourful flower spikes create a bold impression at the middle and back of borders, or planted in groups at the edge of woodland areas. Not so much a planting partner as a bulb replacement, as the emerging lupin foliage quickly fills the spaces left after the final tulips have finished in late April. Tall spires of tightly packed flowers rise above clumps of foliage to form a distinctly elegant hardy perennial that will not need any staking.
