My favorite spring weed
If these weren't so pretty, I'd be pulling 'em out by the hundreds, but obviously I don't. Since first planting these many years ago, they have self-sown in the lawn, in beds 20 feet away, in sun and shade. Squirrels almost always destroy any spring bulbs I plant (including crocus - they eat the flowers), but they don't touch these. Too boot, they bloom for at least 3 weeks if we don't get an early heat wave and the foliage is gone by early June.
