Primula kisoana, woodland shade primrose, blooms in spring but foliage looks attractive all season. Grows by underground runners in rich woodland soil , also comes in white form, Alba, though its not as easy for some reason.

Moist soil, rich soil for Forget me Nots and violets. Forget me nots are unattractive when they go to seed, but you can mow them down @ that stage and they just keep coming back. You need to love the wild  cottage garden look to want these, but when they bloom it looks beautiful. Also you can plant other perennials that grow taller as the forget me nots fade away making them less noticeable.

Tulip combo

"Lorraine, this is the first year we've planted tulips in a long time. We gave up on them many years ago because the squirrels would always dig up and eat the bulbs and if any did manage to grow, the deer would eat them. We got around those two…"

Wild & Blue Primroses

"Lorraine, I think one thing you and I have in common is that we both like bright, vividly colored blooms. These are really spectacular -- even if they only last for a few weeks."
