The Q&A Archives: Bloom Cycle of Bulbs in HI

Question: I planted a bunch of spring bulbs in January. They are flowering now, but will they flower year round? The instructions say that they stop flowering when it gets cold. But, I live in a zone 12 area where it never gets cold. Chad M Aiea, HI

Answer: It all depends on the type of spring bulbs you planted. Traditional temperate climate bulbs such as tulips, daffodils, hyacinths.... will flower for a few weeks in spring, then stop blooming. Tropical bulbs such as gingers will bloom for months before stopping in fall. If you can let me know what bulbs you have, I can tell you their bloom cycle.
