A naturalistic garden style emulates nature in all her wild ways. Many spring-flowering bulbs appeal to those who enjoy a natural look by inviting pollinators into the gardens. The beauty of naturalizing is that the tiny bulbs will multiply and produce more flowers every year and flower in succession for many weeks. Visit FlowerBulbs.com for more information.
