Summer flowering bulbs are ideal for container gardens

summer bulbs for container gardensDiscover the variety of flowering bulbs that can be added to plantings in pots and containers for attractive and unique floral arrangements. Bulbs may be layered in planters to create a continuous display in your container garden through the seasons.

The following are great flower bulbs for planting in containers for summer-flowering on your patios, balconies and in your garden landscape. Some are used in hanging baskets (Achimenes), while others are used in large pots (Agapanthus) or flower boxes (Hybrid Tuberous Begonias). Many large summer-flowering plants are ideal for dramatic effect in colder regions where they can be brought into a protected garage over winter.
