Autumn BulbsBook - 2005
Autumn bulbs can create a burst of gorgeous color in the garden?just when it seemed to be fading along with the summer sun. From the tuberous alpine Aconitum to the trumpet-shaped Zephyranthes, this lushly illustrated celebration of late-blooming flowers lists over 30 genera, as well as hundreds of species and cultivars. Some?colchicums, crocuses, and snowdrops?are already well-established; others, such as Pinellia and Tigridia, are less well-known. Gardeners will find enough practical information on propagation, cultivation, and plant associations to ensure that their backyards and lawns have an extended growing season.
