What Mainers should know about spring-planted bulbs and their blooms

Editor's Note: This story was originally published in April 2018.

For many Mainers, planting bulbs in the garden conjures images of cool temperatures and changing leaves as holes are dug for daffodils, crocuses and tulips.

But fall is not the only time to plant bulbs. Spring brings with it the opportunity to plant another round of bulbs and tubers – this time for colorful, often showy or exotic flowers that will bloom later this summer. The list of bulbs and tubers planted in spring is long and includes dahlias, tulips, begonias, calla lilies and canna lilies, all of which can add drama and beauty to your garden.
