A few more spring bloomers

Fritillaria liliacea- wonderful, early Californian, I really do
like the native left coast species.

Fritillaria hermonis ssp. amana



Fritillaria fleischeriana X aurea



Fritillaria biflora x purdyi, one of my all time favorites, this hybrid originated in Janes bulb frames.


Iris graeberiana 'Yellow Falls'

Tulipa cretica-The 1938, 3 volume Hardy Bulbs, by Charles Hervey Grey has this to say about it: "A native of Crete on high mountains, in stony places.......It Flowers in April and is an attactive little plant, very scarce in cultivation."

  1. My wife and I were talking recently and we want to put in some new flowers next spring. Where can we find great quality flower bulbs for sale online? Can we find almost any flower online?

    1. Hi Bryan, there are a number of big outfits online that sell bulbs. A Google search should turn up lots of hits. For higher quality and a selection of more interesting species I would recommend checking out the pacific bulb society website and looking through sources there.
