Naturalizing bulbs are a popular planting technique to achieve a natural effect in the landscape—as if nature had planted them. Planting varieties that readily naturalize is like investing in a garden's future. Each year, plants return bigger, brighter, and more abundant. You can naturalize bulbs in a meadow or woodland, in areas under deciduous trees and shrubs, at the edges of paths and walkways, or in a lawn. All the bulbs featured here naturalize with ease, creating an even more beautiful landscape as time goes by. Shop our selection of naturalizing bulbs today.
The traditional method of naturalizing is to scatter the bulbs across the area and plant them where they fall. Or you can simply plant the bulbs at random, avoiding any resemblance to rows or patterns. In succeeding years, the bulbs will multiply and fill in the spaces. Daffodils naturalize beautifully in an open area, at the edge of woodlands, or on the slope of a lawn. Small bulbs like snow crocus, snowdrops and Siberian squill, whose foliage matures fast, are best for naturalizing in lawns, set out individually or in clusters.
