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 Naked Lady Lily (Belladonna Amaryllis) Bulb:

    Although I did not get from High Country Gardens, I have to speak out on this wonderful plant! I have grown this plant for years. Believe it or not, my original plant is in SE South Dakota (Zone 5) and growing under a Black Walnut tree. I have moved some of it to NE Iowa (Zone 5). I have the Iowa plants in with my Hosta plants. Clump gets larger every year.

      Comments about High Country Gardens Naked Lady Lily (Belladonna Amaryllis) Bulb:

      VERY disappointing experience with a treasure plant. Our gardener and we are experienced and on two attempts with your fine product, we were unable to coax it to grow. Our hot and humid summer might have been the culprit as the bulbs were in suitable locations with good drainage. I recall these from my grandmother's garden here and wanted them for that reason.

      Q & A

      Suggested Companion Plants:

      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).
