It's Starting ... the bulb-buying frenzy

Stamford, CT(Zone 6b)

It was my pleasure to go to Costco today and find that they must have just received their shipment of bulbs, and the shelves were loaded. These are the earliest ones, mostly lilium and callas, dahlias, begonias, eucomis, a few aroids and of course a few others, like liatris and gladiolus. The bags are 11.99 each, and the more expensive the bulb and the fancier the variety, the fewer in the package. The calla lilies are 6 to a bag, the oriental lilies I got were 18 to a bag. Somehow I recall that they had more varieties and colors, and I still have to do some online shopping.

Now I can't wait to go in the next week or two to see what else they've got. They tend to get their shipments in waves. Peonies tend to come in much later with the plants.
