Tropical Bulbs (Zone 9-10 or Indoors)
These Tropical Bulbs are easy to grow and are suitable for planting outdoors all year if temperatures stay above a light frost (Zones 9-10). In colder climates bring pots indoors in September to continue to grow or allow to go dormant until spring (no water). We've been offering these off and on at the spring flower and garden shows and know you will like them too. Do not use soil mixtures or fertilizer with high nitrogen added because it will suppress flowering.
