About this book

The first book devoted to the subject, Autumn Bulbs covers over 30 genera and hundreds of species and cultivars in depth. Unlike spring-flowering bulbs, which need to settle in over the winter before blooming, autumn bulbs are planted in late summer to early autumn and flower later the same season. New and well-established autumn bulbs are featured, and the genera covered include: Aconite, Allium, Amaryllis, Anenome, Arum, Biarum, Codonopsis, Colchicum, Crinum, Crocus, Cyclamen, Cypella, Eucomis, Galanthus, Gladiolus, Habranthus, Hippeastrum, Leucojum, Lilium, Merendera, Muscari, Narcissus, Nerine, Oxalis, Pinellia, Rhodophiala, Scilla, Schizostylis, Sternbergia, Tigridea, Tropaeolum and Zephyranthes. The range ensures that the reader makes the most of their garden in the later months of the year.
