Like Irises, many bulb flowers can add reoccurring color to your landscape and lawn. Many flowering bulbs make great cut flowers and with the right mix, they can deliver constant color throughout the season. You can plant summer flowering bulbs now, since the last proposed frost for the year has fallen, to bloom throughout the summer. Gladiolus, dahlias, and anemones are just a few of the bulbs that can be planted for this year’s enjoyment. When planting summer bulbs, remember that the two most important ingredients to a successful summer garden are quality bulbs and well-drained soil. Bulbs require a substantial amount of water immediately after planting but should only require moderately moist soil from there on out. Fertilizer is not needed, and container potting is alright too.
