Star Flowers are among the earliest of spring flowers.

These little beauties are the perfect blue-purple combination to partner with the other early colors of spring.

Star flowers prefer typical spring weather (cool and moist). That's probably why they don't last too long.

They take up so little room that they are easily kept in small decorative containers. This fact makes them a great gift idea for the gardener in your life.

Grape Hyacinths are perennials that just seem to happen. The tiny bulbs can be placed virtually any and everywhere.

But you need to keep in mind that these miniature clusters of purple grape-like beads that make up the bloom of the grape hyacinth don't grow above 4 to 6 inches.

This means you need to keep them out in front of the rest of your plants, or as is shown in the picture above, paired with plants that have little or no ground foliage.
