  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
Bring early color to the drabness of late winter with an explosion of spring-blooming perennials. Along with the many familiar types of tulip, daffodil, hyacinth, and other bulb species, you'll find suggestions for more exotic spring plants, including many that are easy to plant and rewarding to display. Choose from 50 favorites, all shown in color, with help from the experts on which ones thrive in the region where you live. A unique "biology of bulbs" section explains the whys behind the how-tos for greater understanding. To get spring bloomers started, follow the steps for growing them in containers and transplanting them at the right time. Controlling spring pests and diseases emphasizes natural, chemical-free ways to naturalize your garden. A year-round plan for planting will fill your beds and borders with plants that provide color throughout summer and fall, and make best use of winter months.
