Flowering bulbs offer a multitude of opportunities for brightening the home landscape. Their range of color and bloom type and size, as well as their long sequence of bloom, are unequalled in any other class of flowers. Although most gardeners think of lilies, tulips, hyacinths and daffodils as bulbs, there is an almost unending array of bulbs. By careful scheduling, a gardener can have flowering bulbs in bloom before the last snows in spring until the first snow in the fall. Some bulbs do not have" bulbs"but having rhizomes that serve as underground stems and storage and can be used to propagate new plants.
