Merry Christmas and Happy Bulbs in the New Year

I woke up this morning with my head bursting with ideas for messages to the 
various plant lists and material for my garden blog.  I got the blog piece 
written and posted, and one list message posted.  Then seven decades of 
Christmases set in; and most of the ideas evaporated, probably in the steam 
from my morning mug of hot tea.

I do want to wish everyone on this fine list the best of holiday seasons, 
and a healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year.  May your gardens and pots 
be filled with new and wonderful bulbs.  May the anticipation of tomorrow's 
flowers always drown out yesterday's regrets.

I'm trying to grow more Arisaema from seed, and trying to find some more 
that will survive, or even thrive, in my garden here.  What new bulbs would 
you like to add to your collection in the coming year?
