In addition to this forum, DG provides you with many ways to learn more about any type of bulb, find sources, and share what you know with others. This thread is intended to help you explore those features and provide a permanent reference tool with helpful links and shortcuts.

Getting the most from PlantFiles

PlantFiles has thousands of bulb plants listed, and tons of information - here are some tips to track down what you're looking for:

1) The cultivar-finders let you browse and search for cultivars of many bulb and bulb-like plants (Daffodils, Lilies, Daylilies and Iris) alphabetically. Here's an example of the cultivar finder for daffodils:

2) The Advanced Search lets you find the bulbs that meet your specifications (bloom color, flower shape, evergreen/dormant, height, bloom time, etc.) Just skip the list of cultivars and then select the category "bulbs" along with the specific characeristics you're searching for

3) If we've missed a bulb, here's a link to add a new entry:

4) Within any entry (one you added, or existing entries), you can add your own comment, photo and/or ZIP code report if it grows well in your garden! The screen shot below shows you where to look for the ZIP code field; the links to add an image or comment are directly beneath that field.
