Mary Sue, in describing what grew where, said, "The topic of the week
this week is Landscaping with Bulbs. 

When we had our Regional Topics....
some of you wrote about bulbs that were good choices for growing in the

ground in your areas.

But we never heard from Australia, the northeastern United States
for Mark's discussion on Alliums), the southern states, non
gardens in Europe, etc. So this is an opportunity for all the rest of
to share what bulbs you have found make good landscaping plants. For
who have already told in detail about your gardens you might want to
us with your favorite five bulbs for landscaping....."

Those of you who have access to the current issue of  Neil Sperry's
Gardens magazine could possibly get ideas from an article I wrote on
'Five Top Bulbs for Texas' meaning, recurring bulbs, not throw aways. 
Actually, it increased to Six Bulbs because Philippine lilies just
couldn't be left out!

But, correspondents, please tell us your town and state, or some
details of where you garden such as how cold it gets there, or how much
of a hot summer, little rainfall, too much rainfall, etc. you have to
cope with, so that we readers can adjust your situation to ours!
