I’ve got gardening on the brain with today’s beautiful weather. There’s such a sense of accomplishment when my spring bulbs and flowers start blooming. One of my favorites are the delicate grape hyacinths (though they’re really part of the lily family, not hyacinth). Although they’re native to the Mediterannean area, they grow just nicely here in Central North Carolina’s gardening zones 7 and 8. They’re perennial bulbs that grow to be about 7 or 8 inches high, and are happy in sunny or shady areas of your garden. They’re especially lovely growing amongst pale pink or lavender creeping phlox.
