I like the blue bells as they are such a pretty true blue...and when they are done blooming...they are gone and don't have to worry about them till next spring

Jacks...cause they are really cool looking

Primrose....who doesn't love a plant that starts to bloom two days after the snow is gone...huge bunches of bright yellow flowers

foxgloves....they are just magical....loved them since I was a kid...plus they reseed freely in my yard and always seem to know just where I would like another one

Butterfly bush....I love anything that brings butterflies and hummingbirds to my yard.
