The Magic of Bulbs

When you plant bulbs, you plant a hope in tomorrow. Place one of Mother Nature’s most unique creations into the ground, and you are planting a self-contained package of foliage and flowers that will reward you with color year after year. Triggered into motion by time or temperature, bulbs are one of the most reliable of plants, welcoming spring when most needed or filling the summer garden with unusual beauty. Although you will not be rewarded with the fruits of your planting labor for several months of tomorrows, the results cannot be duplicated in any manner.

The beauty of bulbs in the landscape is as dependable and as permanent as can be. Cut and brought indoors, bulb flowers offer color, form, fragrance and long-lasting qualities that welcome the end of winter or the glory of summer.

What Is a Bulb?

True bulbs, such as daffodils, lilies, bulbous iris, hyacinths, glory of the snow and others, are actually complete plants within a tiny package. Slice into a bulb at planting time, and you will see the future roots, stems, leaves and flowers. Fleshy scales surrounding this future growth contain all the necessary food for the bulb to grow. After the bulb has bloomed, food for the next season is manufactured in the leaves and transferred to the underground portion to start the chain again the following year. On the outside of a bulb you will find a thin, brown covering similar to that you find on an onion.

As bulbs grow, tiny bulblets are formed around the base. These bulblets can be separated from the main bulb to form new plants. A few bulbs, such as lilies, form bulbils in the leaf axils of the parent plant.

Corms, which include crocus, freesia and gladiolus, are modified stems filled with food storage tissue. They are usually short and squat and covered with a mesh-like material. Look closely, and you will see growth eyes at the top. After a corm blooms, the original corm disappears and a new one forms for next year’s growth. Some corms also produce cormels which, like bulblets, are baby plants that can be separated from the parent and grown into new
