Bulbs (and their close kin rhizomes, corms, and tubers) are among the loveliest and easiest garden plants. Examples of bulbs include tulips, hyacinth, crocuses, and daffodils. A bulb's vertical, strap-shaped foliage and stunning flowers add a lively bit of punctuation (think exclamation point) to perennial beds and meadows. Bulbs live for many years. Most of them die back after they flower, spending the winter underground to emerge and bloom again in spring.
Bulbs are considered sustainable because they require little or no care once established. Plus, native bulbs in your garden help preserve wild species and provide sustenance for native creatures. However, never dig bulbs from the wild or purchase dug bulbs from unscrupulous dealers. There's no need to destroy nature to get plants.
