My favorite spring blooming bulb besides daffodil is the hyacinth. Hyacinth has a multifloret columnar flower with a sweet fragrance. They grow 8 to 12 inches tall and are suitable for cutting. Hyacinth colors include white and shades of pink and blue. Like daffodils, they are also deer-resistant.
Fritillaria or Crown Imperial bulbs have fussier growing requirements but are worth the effort. They make quite a statement with their hanging bell-shape flowers on 30- to 40-inch plants. They are very deer-resistant.
Allium or ornamental onion is another tall, striking specimen bulb with large ball-shaped blooms in lavender shades. It is also deer-resistant.
Summer-blooming lilies can be planted now also. There are a few other bulbs that you may find interesting, such as muscari, scilla, grape hyacinth and windflower.
Bulbs are available in stores now with the best selection in full-service nurseries. Hollandbulbfarms.com is a reliable online source that is currently offering discount prices.
Most of my bulbs are planted the same place I plant my annual flowers. I use a 2-inch-wide hand trowel to dig holes between flowers for the bulbs. I also plant bulbs (especially daffodils) amid ground cover. Sometimes I have to remove a bit of ground cover to make holes for bulbs. Bulbs grow well in containers, including ones that are also used for annual flowers. Bulbs prefer well-drained soil, so if you have a clay soil be sure to mix in organic matter, such as bark dust, before planting.
