These flowering bulbs are the surest signs that spring has arrived, with some bulbs even blooming when there's still snow on the ground. If you want to herald spring with a burst of color, you need to plan ahead because these bulbs must be planted in fall. Choose a variety of early, mid and late season bulbs for a long season of color. Come spring, you'll be glad you planted bulbs!

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
