Spring bulbs at Lowes

luvahydrangea(Albany, NY 5)March 9, 2011

Just a PSA. I got some Blazing Star Liatris, something I've always wanted. I usually don't buy bulbs from Lowes, but I couldn't help it. :) The gladiolas and dahlias were tempting too.

I wish Liatris liked our mild winters. Have tried twice :-(

I bought some dark leaved dahlias. I hope they really are that, I haven't had much luck with the labeling on these box store bargains.

But it cools the spring fever for a few more days until my favorite garden center opens up with Easter flowers and spring pansies.

I have not had a problem with dahlias from big box stores. Lilies, yes, sometimes mislabelled.
