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.

Sweet Fragrance in the Garden

My Shirley Temple Peonies just opened their snow white blooms and my first instinct was to lean down and take a breath of their intoxicating scent. The sweet fragrance of blooms adds a lovely sensory element to your garden bursting in color. Scatter fragrant perennials and spring bulbs throughout your garden to enjoy the wonderful, sweet scent all season – Both outside in your garden and brought inside for beautiful, sweet-smelling bouquets.

Effortless Blooms

Although weeding, watering, staking and all the other get-your-hands-dirty aspects of gardening are therapeutic to many, some gardeners are looking for an easy-to-plant, easy-to-grow solution for a space filled with blooms. Fortunately, there are quite a few varieties of seed, bulbs, and plants that require little care, staking, and are disease-resistant.

Can’t Water?

There are many reasons why gardeners are unable to water their plants as frequently as they would like; there could be water restrictions in their region, the garden plot could be hard to reach, or they are working on conservation and wanting to garden simply by the means of Mother Nature. It doesn’t matter what type of gardener you are – There are many seed, bulb, and perennial plant choices that will tolerate dry conditions and provide a long-lasting, vibrant show of color!
