Here they are ! For Spring 2012, I have designed two exclusive bulb collections to make creating beautiful combinations in your garden a no-brainer.
With access to virtually anything I thought would be affordable and easy to grow, I put together one ‘creamy peach’ collection, and one ‘dark drama’ collection. I am calling them the ‘Bel’Occhio Collections’ . Bel’Occhio is Italian for ‘Beautiful Eye’ – ’nuf said.
Both are priced at only $19.99 ! This is less than these bulbs would sell for on their own. What a great gift idea ! I think they would be great to take to dinner (instead of wine)…. or for a ‘Thank You’ of any type.
We can ship them to you, anywhere in Canada ! Drop by or phone us to make your selections before they’re all gone ! Shipping fees extra, at cost.

Next year , 2013, look for them nationwide at better garden centres .
Bel’Occhio Collection # 1 includes : @ $19.99
1 tuber clump of Giant Dahlia ‘Cafe au Lait‘ - one of my personal favourites. An unusual true parchment colour unlike any other.
Now very hard to find.
3 Oriental lily bulbs ‘Salmon Stargazer’ - a tasteful, softer shade…. super hardy, fragrant, and truly beautiful. Perennial. Not crazy tall.
3 Oriental lily bulbs ‘Casa Blanca’ - the best lily ever . Huge, fragrant white…. fabulous as cut flowers. Perennial. Orgasmic perfume.
1 tuber clump of Giant Dahlia ‘Moonlight Sonata’ - A gorgeous salmon shade, a gorgeous shape, a gorgeous plant habit.
All these qualities, and great for cut flowers!
Bel’Occhio Collection #2 includes : @$ 19.99
3 Asiatic lily bulbs ‘Landini’ - it’s hard to believe a lily could be this dark – almost black. No ‘Photoshop’ here…. a shiny, burnished mahogany black ! Super hardy, steel rod stems, perennial. Stunning.
1 Dahlia tuber clump of ‘Karma Choc’ - a very very dark brownish red that appears black. Very different ! I like to mix a few super dark dahlias in with my peachy and orange ones, in the garden and in cut bouquets .
2 Canna tubers ‘Australia’ (not australis) – the darkest, shiniest black foliage of any Canna. Flowers are also very dark – a lipstick red.
Strong, upright growth to about 4′.
1 Dahlia tuber clump of ’ Kenora Macabre’ – a WOW flower ! Super dark red, a full , formal-but-shaggy cactus type I love !
This variety stops people in their tracks at dahlia shows !
