If you’ve never planted Windflowers before, you should consider it. A nice patch seen up near an entryway or along a walkway is an awesome sight. The best effect is when they’re planted in a large group forming a colorful carpet. Growing about 6″ tall they’ll be covered in daisy-like flowers in white, purple and pink. It has finely-cut foliage that will go dormant in the summer heat. Plant in full sun to partial shade in a well-drained, somewhat sheltered spot. Soaking the small tubers overnight to re-hydrate helps encourage them to root and become established this fall. Plant after soaking about 2-3″ deep.

Add these to your list of spring flowering bulbs for planting this fall! A box of 150 will make several nice splashes of color next May – totally something to look forward to!
