variety of tulipsThese bulbs, corms, tubers, and rhizomes were graciously donated to N.C. Cooperative Extension in Guilford County by Greensboro Beautiful. We have been charged with bringing the bounty to citizens and organizations in Guilford County.

Bulbs, corms, tubers, and rhizomes all fall under the category of geophytes. Simply put, a geophyte is a herbaceous perennial with a swollen “organ” used for food storage. The plants included in this project are daffodils, tulips, lilies, iris, and peonies, just to name a few. These plants are considered to be low maintenance and offer annual Spring and Summer color to your landscape. These plants are also excellent pollinator attractors, and will bring in bees, butterflies, and other critters to help make your garden grow.

Use the links below for growing information for each of the plant types offered in 2022. You can also find growing information on each bulb packet.

Store bulbs in a cool dry place.

If you have additional questions about growing these plants or any others in your garden, please contact our Extension Master Gardener℠ Infoline via email or at 336-641-2404.
