Flower Bulbs for Fall Planting

Posted By on Aug 29, 2007 | 4 comments

Fritillaria 'Lutea Maxima' It is almost time for fall planting, and that means it is time to order your flower bulbs. Wayside gardens has an extensive line of internet exclusive bulbs that will fill your garden with color from late winter right through the next fall.Check out all of our tulip bulbs, crocus bulbs, and the great varieties of Amaryllis.

Planting bulbs is the best inexpensive way to fill your garden with the biggest variety of colorful flowers of all shapes and sizes. Most bulbs are planted in the fall to bloom the next spring. Most of the plants that grown from bulbs are perennials that come back year after year. If you choose strong varieties and care for them properly, the flower bulbs you plant this fall may become the most important feature of your flower garden. Some people start with only a few daffodils or crocus, and in a few years they have planted hundreds of bulbs because of their reliability, beauty, and relatively low cost.


  1. Can you please tell me what is the name of this Yello bulb ( posted on August 29.2007?

  2. Wow, I can’t believe I forgot to label that. I had to ask around to find the name *Thanks Tara*. It’s Fritillaria ‘Lutea Maxima’.
    This is a fall bulb, and it is not currently available, but maybe we will have it – or something very similar – soon.

  3. I am a former nursery owner and I have ordered previously from you with very good results. My memory is bad, but did I order some type of rhodadenron that grows upright into a small tree like a dogwood? It has a reddish orange bloom if I remember correctly, also could you please remind me when it is time to order and plant crocus bulbs?
    Thank You,

  4. I am also interested in any small type plants and bulbs that I can grow in a retirement village. We are allowed to grow some plants with permission, I want to also plant at least three small blooming and colorful seasonal trees, but no noxious ones.
