Spring-flowering bulbs must be planted in the fall. They need cool soil to make roots before the onset of winter. Cool fall weather arrives at different times from north to south and from high elevations to low.
Please note that the temperature of the soil lags behind the air temperature. You can generally plant later than the windows provided in this map. As long as the ground is not frozen, you can still plant.
Trout lilies make their home on the forest floor, where their nodding flowers provide a welcome spark of spring color. Pagoda is the most reliable of the group. Its delicate blooms, which resemble turks cap lilies, shine in dappled light.
