(Garden Ranunculus, Persian Buttercup)

Introduced to Europe from Turkey in the late sixteenth century and still popular as a garden and florists' plant, this tender tuberous perennial from the eastern Mediterranean produces showy red, pink, purple, yellow, orange, or white blooms on compact stems in late spring and summer. Most cultivated forms bear ruffled pompon-like double flowers. The leaves, which typically emerge very early in the season, are deeply lobed and bluish-green. Plants go dormant after bloom. Several groups of garden...

(Figwort, Lesser Celandine)

A tiny spring ephemeral that spreads rapidly to form extensive colonies, this hardy tuberous perennial is native to much of Europe and western Asia, and widely naturalized in other temperate regions. Highly variable, it typically bears glossy, yellow, circular flowers with 8 to 12 starry petals. Appearing in early spring, the blooms vary considerably in color and form, with white-, bronze-, and double-flowered variants sometimes occurring. The lustrous, heart-shaped leaves are usually dark green...

(Brazen Hussy Figwort, Figwort, Lesser Celandine)

A tiny spring ephemeral that spreads rapidly to form extensive colonies, lesser celandine is a hardy tuberous perennial from Europe and western Asia. The cultivar 'Brazen Hussy' is prized for its showy bronze-purple leaves and glossy, yellow, circular flowers. Appearing in early spring, the blooms have 8 to 12 starry petals. The lustrous, heart-shaped leaves go dormant in late spring. Plants proliferate by tubers and seeds and can eventually cover large areas.

Lesser celandine grows most rampantly...

(Figwort, Flore Pleno Figwort)

A tiny spring ephemeral that spreads rapidly to form extensive colonies, lesser celandine is a hardy tuberous perennial from Europe and western Asia. Highly variable, it often occurs in semi-double or double-flowered forms, which have more than the usual 8 to 12 petals. These form the Flore Pleno Group. Appearing in early spring, the glossy, yellow, circular blooms are typically yellow but may also be partly or entirely white or bronze. The lustrous, heart-shaped, dark green leaves often have silver...

(Red Star)

A low, matting perennial, red star has gray-green leaves and star-like pink to red-pink flowers in late spring and summer. An alpine plant that grows from a corm-like, underground stem, it is native to the mountains of South Africa and grows in moist, rocky soil.

The leaves of red star are narrow and folded with many white hairs. The plant is covered by flowers on short stems from late spring into summer. Each flower has six overlapping petals, a trait often called "blind" since the petals mask...

(Squill)

The squills include about 60 species of bulbous perennials native to a wide range of habitats in Europe and Asia. Scilla formerly included several recently renamed South African species.

These hardy to somewhat tender plants produce underground, fleshy-scaled bulbs with papery tunics. In late winter, spring, summer, or fall, depending on the species, bulbs give rise to clumps of strap-shaped, typically short-lived leaves. Conical to dome-shaped clusters of starry, tubular, or bell-shaped...

(Alpine Squill)

Small clusters of pale starry flowers are produced by this small ephemeral bulb at the cusp of spring. Over time, alpine squill will naturalize in beds and grassy lawns, and though it lacks the electric color of its fellow blue-flowered relative, Siberian squill, it is still highly garden worthy. Wild populations inhabit the mountains of southern Europe and Turkey, but this species has also naturalized in other parts of Europe.

Each bulb only produces two broad, blade-like leaves that pop up...

(Pink Alpine Squill, Rosy Squill)

Beautiful in naturalized clumps, rosy squill mocks winter with starry palest pink flowers in late winter and very early spring. An herbaceous perennial that grows from a bulb (rounded storage root), it is native to the mountains of southern Europe and Turkey along the Mediterranean.

Each bulb produces only two wide, linear leaves that pop out in very late winter or earliest spring. Accompanying the leaves is a slender flower stem that has between three and ten star-shaped flowers. Each palest...

(Early Squill, Misczenko Squill, White Squill)

Cheerfully blooming in late winter and early spring with striped pale blue and blue blossoms, Misczenko squill forms beautiful drifts of plants in rockeries and meadows. An herbaceous perennial that grows from bulbs, this beauty is native to the rocky slopes and meadows of western Asia: from the Caucusus southward to Iran's Elburz Mountains.

Three to five broadly lineat leaves emerge from the bulb in very early spring. At the same time, a very short flower stem rises from these basal leaves....

(Peruvian Jacinth, Portuguese Squill)

This tender bulb is well-suited to warmer region gardens where many hardy bulbs, that require cold for blooming, will not thrive. Peruvian hyacinth is not native to Peru but from southern Europe and northern Africa where it inhabits open sunny areas. It can tolerate poorer soil types, though it also thrives in fertile loam. It is unusual in that it only remains dormant in summer.

Its splayed clumps of lance-shaped green leaves appear in fall and remain attractive all winter. In late spring...
