Summer bulbs are available to plant in spring. While many are hardy in our mild climate, new bulbs shouldn't be planted until the danger of hard frost has passed. In other words, May is the time to plant summer flowering bulbs.
A good little primer on these plants is called Summer-Blooming Bulbs, edited by Beth Hansen (Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, 9.95). Chapter topics include botany, care, design and a mini-encyclopedia. Contributing authors Brent and Becky Heath, owners of the top American bulb nursery (Brent and Becky's Bulbs), suggest a few summer bulbs that will come back every year without lifting in Pacific Northwest gardens:
- Crinum lily (Crinum 'Bradley')
- Pineapple lily (Eucomis autumnalis)
- Guernsey lily (Nerine bowdenii)
- Crimson flag (Schizostylis coccinea)
