Spring-flowering bulbs must be planted in the autumn because they require a sustained "dormant" period of cold temperatures to stimulate root development. The only rule is that, spring-flowering flower bulbs must be planted before the first hard frost.
Shallow bowl-shaped flowers in shades of red, blue-violet and white appear from March to April above the deeply divided, fresh green leaves.
