Planting Guides

Summer Blooming Bulbs, including popular varieties such as gladiolus and dahlias, are planted in the spring and bloom in the summer. Most of these bulbs are tropical and require warm weather to be planted. There must not be any danger of frost and your ground temperature must have reached 55 degrees Fahrenheit before planting. Many of our summer blooming bulbs can be planted as perennials in zones 9-10 (zone 8 if mulched), but should be treated as annuals in cooler climates. You can lift them and store them in the fall, or bring patio pots inside before frost. See page 15 of our Planting Guide for a bulb depth planting illustration.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Crocosmia Mixture:

    I received these bulbs in good condition and planted according to included instructions. Unfortunately, only about 4 bulbs formed leaves and none bloomed. I was disppointed because I have generally had good luck with HCG. Will not re-order. (I shared half with a girlfriend and NONE of hers came up at all.)

      Comments about High Country Gardens Crocosmia Mixture:

      The crocosmia, mixture and Lucifer, are marvelous flowering plants. In southeastern Michigan I should have started them earlier to get the longest bloom period in summer when the hummingbirds are most active. I'll change my practice for next year.

      Q & A

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
