Bulbous Spring Bloomers to Plant in Fall
Grape Hyacinth Grape Hyacinth

Plant these tiny bulbs now, then welcome spring in a big way later! Whether in a woodland setting, nestled in a rock garden or used as edging for landscape beds, the bright hue and sweet fragrance of grape hyacinth offers an unforgettable springtime show. Due to their small stature and minute sales volume compared with tulips and daffodils, grape hyacinths are one of the “minor bulbs” of the trade. Although sometimes scorned by gardeners for their ability to spread, these little lovelies can turn a ho-hum garden into a real showplace!
Eranthis hyemalis Early Geophytes for Natural Sites

Early blooming bulbous plants offer a breath of fresh air from the tired chill of late winter. Many are well-suited for naturalizing, amplifying their cheerful colors as they spread freely and naturally in a pleasing, non-invasive and non-competitive manner. Known as “geophytes,” these plants are really just perennials that grow by underground bulbs, corms, rhizomes or tubers. Plant them in fall for a much-needed boost of colorful joy later. These bright harbingers of spring generally bloom for 2-3 weeks from January through March.
