Best Spring Bulbs for the Southern Pacific Coast Region
There are two major fall planting seasons for the Southern Pacific Coast
Best Spring Bulbs for the Northern Pacific Coast Region
With long cool, wet winters and springs, followed by dry summers and falls, your region is close to perfect for many spring-flowering bulbs.
Best Spring Bulbs for the Arid West Region
Your region of relatively long cool winters, very hot to moderately dry summers and low moisture, is good for growing many bulbs, especially those native to dry climates
Best Spring Bulbs for the Rocky Mountains
Your largely alpine environment with long, cold winters and moderate summers make a good environment for hardy spring-flowering bulbs.
Best Spring Bulbs for the Gulf Coast Region
Your area, with its mild winter climate and hot, humid summers, is perfect for most summer-blooming bulbs - and fine for a surprising number of spring bloomers too, if carefully chosen.
Best Spring Bulbs for the South Central Region
Your moderate climate with its mildly cold winters and hot, humid summers, suits most spring-flowering bulbs except for those that have longer cold requirements and drier summer dormancy.
Best Spring Bulbs for the East Central Region
Yours is an excellent area for most spring-flowering bulbs with moderately cold winters, ample moisture, and warm to hot summers.
Best Spring Bulbs for the Mid-Atlantic Coastal Region
In your area, you may be able to grow many of the tropical and other marginally hardy plants by planting in warmer 'micro-climates' protected from exposure to wind and extreme cold.
Best Spring Bulbs for New England
Plant bulbs in the fall starting when nighttime temperatures stay between 40-50° F. But, be sure to plant approximately six weeks before the ground freezes to allow sufficient time for rooting. Bulbs will root best in cool soil and once rooted undergo natural changes that keep them from freezing. Water your bulbs after planting to help them start the rooting process.
