Nothing Minor About These Bulbs

Often when we think of bulbs that bring eye-catching spring color to the garden, tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils come to mind.  These bulbs are known as major bulbs.  But we should not overlook the beauty that smaller bulbs bring to garden in late winter and early spring, often before the major bulbs have begun to put on their show.  Below are minor bulbs currently in bloom at Welkinweir.

Crocus tommasinianus - Tommies crocus

Crocus chrysanthus - snow crocus

Eranthus - winter aconite
