One look at these fabulous photos and you'll agree: summer bulbs blossom into some of the most fantastic flowers ever seen. Yet most gardening books ignore them in favor of springtime's bounty. Don't assume there's nothing more once the riotous spring bloom of tulips and daffodils fade; here are scores of extravagant bulbs to brighten the summer garden--not only the familiar lily and gladiolus but also exotics such as the South African nerine, the Near Eastern eremurus, and the Asian colocasia. An encyclopedia highlights the favorites of bulb experts from all the different regions, with lovely photos and foolproof advice on cultivation and care. Try the clever and creative ways of combining summer bulbs with more common garden plants in beds and borders, of naturalizing them in the landscape, and of growing them in containers. They'll turn your garden into the hottest one in the neighborhood!
