Flowers from Bulbous Plants

S C Dey (Author)

Flower growing from bulbs or storage roots is most interesting. It economizes on time, space and expenses involved in cultivation. In cold climates flower growing from bulbs can be quite profitable. Commercial floriculture largely depends on the bulbous ornamentals. For a long period of the year the bulbs can be kept indoors. Only in the growing season they are planted outdoors. On planting some species, produce flowers even before producing leaves. The bulbs in the dormant condition can be transported easily like other non-perishable commodities to the customers of the far off places. Home gardeners can purchase flower bulbs from a distant nursery through the surface mail with minimum chances of mortality. The storage roots have different forms. They may be roots or stems that grow underground. They are perennial. But the shoots that grow from them are annual. They are classified by their scientific names. According to the different forms of the storage roots they are designated with different names. However in common parlance they are called 'bulbs' or 'bulbous plants'.
