Are there any bulbs I can plant in April that will bloom in mid to late summer? I live in Spartanburg SC. THANKS

Hi Bstafiej and welcome to ATP!!

Crocosmia is a good one .. they start blooming around July here in the Low Country. You'll want to keep them in pots though as they can become invasive pretty quickly!
