I would try Ipheion, Anemone spp., Nerine, Cyclamen, dwarf Narcissi, and
Alstroemeria (although this last might fill the trough with roots too

Subject: [pbs] bulbs for year round interest

hi all

Over the winter months I'm planning to convert 5 large plastic troughs into
tufa troughs. My plan is to have small bulbs only and have something in
flower all year. Each trough will have for example two small Tulips species

I just cant think of bulbs to buy other than spring bulbs and Colchicums.
What do you suggest? The troughs will be in full sun.
