(Peruvian Jacinth, Portuguese Squill)

The showy flowers of the naturally occurring white form of Peruvian jacinth blend well with many other perennials in the early summer border. This tender bulb is well-suited to southern gardens where many hardy bulbs, that require cold for blooming, will not thrive. Despite its name, it is actually native to southern Europe and northern Africa where it inhabits open sunny areas and can tolerate poorer soil types.

Its splayed clumps of lance-shaped green leaves appear in fall and remain attractive...

(Siberian Squill, Siberian Wood Squill)

Siberian squill is a charming, diminutive bulbous perennial that’s among the earliest of spring-blooming plants. The sweet blue-flowered ephemeral originates from Russia and western Asia and naturalizes readily in wooded areas because it blooms and disappears into dormancy before most deciduous trees and shrubs leaf out to block the sun.

This small bulb appears very early in the spring, just after the snowdrops and winter aconite. Each sends up two to four semi-erect leaves and thin flower...

(Siberian Squill, White Siberian Squill)

Delicate nodding white flowers adorn this tiny early-blooming ephemeral bulb.

Siberian wood squill is a diminutive bulb that originates from Russia and western Asia. Very early in the season, each plant produces fine strap-like foliage and small stems topped with four to six drooping five-petaled, bell-shaped flowers. Once the flowers are spent, these plants will set seed and quickly retreat into the ground for the rest of the growing season. Their dying foliage can easily be raked away for...

(Sinningia)

Florist’s gloxinia is exquisite when in bloom with its large, bell-shaped white, red or violet-blue flowers. This evergreen, frost-intolerant perennial is native to southern Brazil and grows from a tuber, an enlarged underground stem. Numerous cultivars have been developed from this original species to introduce a broader range of colors, floral shapes and petal numbers. They are most commonly grown as houseplants.

This gloxinia grows as a rosette of oblong-oval leaves with velvety hairs. The...

(Harlequin Flower)

Members of the genus Sparaxis are tender, herbaceous, summer-dormant perennials that grow from fibrous-coated corms. Fifteen species are currently recognized, all native to the Southwest Cape or western Karoo regions of South Africa. In the wild they typically inhabit clay-soil scrublands known as renosterveld. In gardens Sparaxis species and hybrids are grown for their sprays of colorful flowers that open in late winter or spring.

These members of the Iris family produce clumps...

The cultivar 'Lady Buttercup' is grown for its compact spikes of soft-yellow flowers.

This member of the Iris family produces fans of slender, sword-shaped leaves that arise from small round corms. Compact, few-flowered spikes of relatively large pastel-yellow flowers appear in spring. The blooms are funnel-shaped with six wide-flaring lobes. Spring-planted corms bloom in early summer.

Sparaxis bulbifera is a tender, summer-dormant, herbaceous perennial grown for its early-season display of white to creamy-yellow blooms. It is native to sandy, seasonally damp habitats in the Southwest Cape region of South Africa.

This member of the Iris family produces fans of slender, sword-shaped leaves that appear in late fall or winter and wither away in spring. Compact, few-flowered spikes of 1.75-inch-wide (4.5-cm), ivory-white blooms appear in late winter or spring. The blooms...
