The bulbs in this blend have the ability to grow and flower well under the shade of trees that loose their leaves. Because they are up early, they are able to get most of the sunlight they need before the trees leaf out. All need well-drained soil.
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.
