Bulb, Rhizome, Tuber… What’s the Difference?

Throughout the years, the term “bulb” has come to describe any type of root form that is planted in the ground to produce a plant. However, only a few of these plants are truly “bulbs.” There are four different types: rhizomes, corms, tubers and bulbs. We’ll get the bottom of this misunderstanding and explain exactly what the true difference is between these four terms.

Paula’s Ever-Changing Garden

When I tell people that I actually don’t like to garden, they stare at me as if I’m crazy. Looking at my landscaping, you would think that I lived for it, but there are really only two parts of gardening that I look forward to: the actual growing of things and the planning.

Is it a Butterfly? Is it a Daffodil?

Butterfly Daffodils are a favorite in the spring garden for their stunning double centers, frills, and unique color combinations that resemble a butterfly. They are a knockout both in the garden and cut for spring bouquets. Try planting a group this fall for an elegant, whimsical show in mid spring.
