In sun or shade it is most valuable for the spring or rock garden, or for a border of choice hardy bulbs, and where it is sufficiently plentiful, for edgings to American plants in peat soil.
The bulbs are white and oblong, resembling a dogs tooth, hence its name.
It is increased by dividing the bulbs every two or three years, and replanting rather deeply.
This remark applies only to bulbs established in the ground, for fresh bulbs are as tender as other Gladioli, and must be protected from frost.
The foot of a south wall suits them if they are associated with the larger hardy bulbs, but they are not the most effective or graceful of the Lily family.
They need an autumn drought to ripen, and a dry soil in winter to preserve the bulbs and keep them at rest; but in spring, when the leaves are pushing up, they love moderate rain.
Hardy on warm soils, but in others it should be planted on slopes, in very sandy dry soil, or on warm borders; the bulbs planted rather deep.
The bulbs increase rapidly in warm open soils, and they may be left in the ground with a covering of ashes in the south.
Hyacinths in the open air are generally the refuse, as it were, of the forced bulbs of preceding years, but even these make a good display in suitable positions.
After blooming, the bulbs, if intended to flower again, must be left undisturbed until the leaves wither or die.
The bulbs should then be taken up, dried in a stack for a week or two, and finally placed in the sun for a few hours, the dry leaves being pulled off.
Offsets should also be removed from the bulbs, and stored in dry sand or earth till the next planting time.
Some take up the bulbs every year, but we have seen handsome beds that were not disturbed for several years.
African bulbs, slender and elegant in growth, and brilliant in flower, but not much grown, because some are tender and require glass protection.
A handful of dry sharp sand placed in a layer under and around the bulbs is conducive to the formation of roots.
The bulbs should be planted in this, and as soon as growth commences in spring, should be mulched with decomposed manure or short grass.
As to propagation, there is scarcely any need to enlarge upon that, as bulbs are imported so plentifully; and it is only necessary to separate the young bulbs and replant them in good soil.
The seedlings should be planted out as soon as the bulbs are of an appreciable size.
Lily-of-the-Field (Sternbergia) - Charming hardy bulbs with flowers of firm texture, better able to withstand bad weather than the Autumn Crocus.
In sandy loams, and fully exposed to the sun, the bulbs will ripen without being lifted, and are best left undisturbed until of flowering size.
The rarest of these Sternbergias should have a place in our bulb borders, in gritty or open soil, associated with the rarer Narcissi and choice hardy bulbs.
This suits all Calochorti, and gives a splendid bloom and firm, well-ripened bulbs.
Meadow Saffron (Colchicum) - Hardy bulbs, some handsome in autumn.
Increased by separation of the new bulbs and by seed.
Sometimes, however, it refuses to grow, and in damp places the bulbs rot in summer.
It thrives in a warm exposed border of sandy loam soil, well drained, the bulbs protected by litter in winter.
Increase by separation of the bulbs in autumn.
All the forms, especially ornatus and recurvus, naturalise perfectly, and of recent years bulbs have been dug on the Pyrenees by the thousand for naturalisation.
White Camassia (Camassia Leichtlini) - This often grows on sandy ridge-tops, and is found in dry spots in ravines; its bulbs are generally deep in some stiff soil.
It requires a warm situation in light soil, such as the foot of a south wall, and in such positions it often thrives better than in pots under glass; but the bulbs must be protected during severe frosts.
It succeeds well in warm sheltered situations in borders of light and well-drained soil, but requires some protection over the bulbs in winter.
Easily increased by dividing the bulbs in July or August, and replanting them from 4 to 6 inches apart.
The soil should be light and friable, and about 1 foot in depth; and the bulbs planted about 4 inches deep.
The gandavensis section suffers from cold autumn rains, and the bulbs must be lifted in autumn.
If this is done the soil will be fit for working in spring, and a pricking over with the fork will reduce it to a fine tilth, and will admit of the bulbs being planted promptly.
About August bulbs of flowering size should be planted 3 inches deep, in rich soil in a frame.
The success which attends the planting of dry bulbs during the early spring months-frequently as late as April-is the best proof that the harm from drying such things is of small moment.
Tuberose (Polianthes) - P. tuberosa is a native of the East Indies, but strong imported bulbs of this deliciously fragrant plant, if inserted in warm soil, will flower well in the open air during August.
L. longiflorum giganteum is the variety generally obtained from Japan; strong bulbs will send up a head of from eight to twelve flowers widely opened; the foliage is bright green; under glass this Lily may easily be forced.
One fun way to plan a bed full of different colors of Echinacea plants is to plant them much like you might spring-blooming bulbs.
Weed the bed once more, and plant any last spring flowering bulbs before the ground freezes.
It also includes access to many articles on topics such as annuals, bulbs, weeds, landscaping, roses and how-to projects.

With their sturdy beauty, bulbs provide gardeners with plant-and-forget flowers.Most spring flowering bulbs are actually planted in the fall, but if you forgot to plant yours, don't fret.
Many garden centers now carry forced bulbs.
These bulbs are gently coaxed into blooming in pots by cooling them for a period of time, then increasing the warmth to mimic springtime.
The results are bulbs such as daffodils, tulips and hyacinth available for purchase fully in bloom.
Bulbs: While not technically winter flowering, many bulbs will flower very early in the season.
Consider not just what blooms in the fall, but winter flowering plants and spring bulbs, too.
Not only is fall the time to plant all those gorgeous bulbs that blossom in the springtime - tulips, daffodils, hyacinth, crocus and so many more - but perennials love the fall, too.
Spring bulbs are a must-have on your fall gardening checklist.
Begonia grandis: pink or white leaves with solid green leaves that grow from bulbs.
Lily: grown from bulbs in a seemingly endless variety with large showy flowers that often produce a strong fragrance.
Gardeners should also consider where they wish to plant spring flowering bulbs such as tulips, crocus, narcissus and daffodils, for each of these bulbs must be planted in the fall.
Spring Bulbs: Now is a great time to consider areas for spring bulbs.
While you can purchase bulbs as soon as they're available in the garden center, don't plant them until the days and nights turn cool.
Bulbs that sprout may still bloom in the spring and many will provide a pleasant show even if they grew a bit in the fall.
This will retain heat and moisture and allow bulbs to germinate.
Onions, for example, can survive in many hardiness zones by simply covering the bulbs with a thick layer of mulch.
The Burpee flower catalog is actually called the Burpee Gardening Catalog and features both flower and vegetable seeds, bulbs and plants.
Among the categories above, flower fanciers specifically will want to peruse the New Features, Customer Favorites, Garden-Ready Plants, Container Gardens, Annuals, Summer Bulbs, and Perennials Section.
Burpee sells both, and you can find seeds, bulbs, and plants ready for purchase.
The varieties of light bulbs available today reinforce the importance of proper lighting and its effects on energy usage.
Recent advances in lighting technologies, combined with a push toward greener, energy saving materials have given way to countless new types of bulbs.
It is a widely used bulb, and very inexpensive, although energy advisers and proponents of "green" lighting suggest switching out these older bulbs for newer, more energy-friendly units.
One of the most energy-efficient choices a homeowner can make is to use fluorescent bulbs.
These twirly bulbs cost three to five times more than incandescent bulbs, but last years longer.
These burn hotter than any other type of bulb, but produce intense light and still last longer than conventional bulbs.
The health benefits of sunlight are widely known, but if you don't want the exposure to UV rays, or the winter days are just too short, consider full spectrum daylight bulbs.
Additionally, some workplaces use full spectrum bulbs in light fixtures, especially in a factory or windowless office.
For more information on the many types of light bulbs, visit Bulbs.com.
Many homeowners think solar bulbs are a great alternative for outdoor lighting.
Over the course of the day, some solar bulbs store power within an energy cell for use at night.
Will replacement light bulbs make the model more expensive in the long run?
Perfect for kitchens, basements, or workshops, fluorescent panel or light row systems come in a variety of styles, and the bulbs are more energy-efficient than ever.
Most use high-intensity halogen bulbs, so even though the individual lights are quiet small, the beam is penetrating.
Some forms of fluorescent light bulbs, however, pose an environmental dilemma due to the mercury content within the bulb; the disposal of these types of light bulbs is not as easy as dumping the burned-out bulbs into the trash.
Consider getting rid of the utilitarian glaring bulbs that offer too little or too much light and install designer track lighting.
Compact Fluorescent light bulbs fit standard light sockets, but are manufactured in special shapes like spirals and the F-shaped bulb.
A select group of compact fluorescent light bulbs can be used on a dimmer switch, but check the package when making your purchase.

And because bulbs differ from one manufacturer to another, it's a good idea to use one brand of bulb to produce a uniform color effect.
Another matter to consider when purchasing your compact fluorescent bulbs is to be sure bulbs to be used in a three-way lamp are designed for this purpose.
They take a little time to reach their full brightness when first switched on, and the quality of light produced by these bulbs can vary from one manufacturer to another.
Converting to the use of compact fluorescent bulbs is one way to help the environment by reducing electric consumption and thus pollution.
Some utility companies and local government provide bulbs to the public in an effort to encourage their use, so check around your local area for more details.
