Wake up the summer doldrums with our Bold And Hardy Collection of spring planted, summer-blooming bulbs. These hardy bloomers will add delightful texture, color, and form to a sunny space or perennial garden. Not fussy, they are low-care perennials that are deer resistant, pollinator favorites. Foxtail Lily (Eremurus stenophyllus) flowers from June through July at a compact height of 2-3' making it a perfect companion to the deep scarlet blooms of Lucifer Crocosmia (Montbretia). Casa Blanca Lilies (Lilium) blooms in mid-summer with pure white, fragrant flowers. Plant ‘Casa Blanca’ amongst other perennials where it can grow with its feet in the shade and extend up into the sun where its big, perfumed flowers can shine. All of these beauties make lovely cut flowers too. Three varieties, 16 bulbs total.

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.
