Top-5 Bulbous Flowers That Bloom in Summer

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The fragile beauty of flowering bulbous plants delights gardeners around the world. During the flowering period, these amazing representatives of decorative flora fill the garden with bright colours and a delicate aroma. What summer flowering species are the most popular? Let’s find out!
Top-5 Popular Bulbous Flowers
Among the representatives of this group, there are plants that bloom in early spring, summer, and late autumn. The average flowering time for most species is 10-30 days. Among the most popular summer flowering bulbs available on we especially recommend the following species:
1) Allium
Most alliums are simple in growing, therefore, they are quite popular. Perhaps many people find the idea of growing alliums in a flower bed or a border quite attractive. Some species have very decorative inflorescences. These inflorescences stand long in cut and can be dried for winter compositions. Alliums usually bloom in early or mid-summer.
2) Calla
Calla is a beautiful bulbous plant. Nowadays, multi-coloured calla lilies are at the peak of popularity. Calla lilies bloom in June-August (depending on the date of planting). The number of flowers depends on the size of bulbs, which can be from 3 to 10 cm. Calla lilies look very impressive on the lake and river shores.
3) Freesia
Freesia is an amazing bulbous plant. The royal gardeners of palaces in France have been growing freesia since the 19th century. Palaces were decorated with fragrant flowers, while freesia bouquets were given to loved ones. Freesia flowers can be white, orange, blue, pink, cream, purple, etc. There are simple and double-flowering varieties. Freesia bulbs can form from 5 to 10 flowers on each peduncle. These inflorescences remain fresh for up to 10 days.
4) Lily
Lily is an incredible bulbous plant. The beauty of these flowers, the grace, and perfection of their forms, strong aroma, as well as resistance to various diseases, have led to their immense popularity among gardeners. Lilies look very beautiful in compositions with different perennial plants. Early-flowering Asian hybrids bloom in June-July, while other oriental hybrids bloom from August to September.
5) Gladiolus
Gladiolus is a black pearl of the garden. Bright, funnel-shaped flowers made gladiolus very popular. They are used for cutting or for planting in mix borders. These flowers bloom from July to September. You should also remember that you shouldn’t grow these flowers in the same place for more than two years.
In Conclusion
Most of the summer flowering plants with bulbs cannot survive cold winters because they are native to tropical and subtropical regions. However, this is not a reason to avoid growing them. Summer-flowering bulbs need to be dug up and stored until spring in a warm and dry place. Such simple measures will allow you to cultivate these plants for many years. Good luck!

      Thanks for the article, it was useful for me to read it. I love planting flowers in the garden and now I want to order bulbs Calla (Zantedeschia) . Zantedeskia is an incredibly beautiful representative of the kingdom of Flora. It cannot be confused with any other plants: strict elegant flowers of various shades against the background of bright glossy greenery.
