|Spring flowering bulbs should be planted in the fall months so they have time to develop roots before they sprout and flower the following spring. Summer or fall blooming bulbs can be planted in late winter or early spring for bloom during the summer and autumn months. Some bulbs in this category include lily, ornamental onion and gladiolus, plus dahlia and caladium tubers.
