Summer Blooming (Spring Shipping)
Find all summer blooming flower bulbs and bare root plants for sale at Terra Ceia Farms here. These items are shipped and planted in the Spring, but depending on the item, they will begin blooming from late spring (ie. daylilies) all the way into fall (ie. Lycoris). Whether it’s the bold foliage of Cannas, the scented fragrance of Polianthes (Tuberose) or the dainty blooms of Zephyranthes (Rain Lily) that you are looking for, we offer a wide selection of summer bloomers below and hope that you will find something that pleases your particular palate.
Our Spring shipping season begins on March 15 and runs through June 15. Warmest zones of the country are shipped first and we move into colder zones as the season progresses. As a rule we try to get the products to you a couple weeks before your last frost date. If you require a specific date, please note in the shipping commentssection during checkout and we will do our best to accommodate. You can find more information on our normal schedule here: Terra Ceia Farms Shipping Schedule and Guarantee
Have a large area that you want to plant while saving a lot of money? Then check out our bulk ‘Bulbs by the Bushel’ section here: Summer Blooming Bulbs by the Bushel. Want plants that look like they have been in your garden for years the first growing season? Then check out our undivided, ‘Field-run Clumps’ here: Field-run Clumps. Regardless of what you decide to purchase, all bare root plants and bulbs that we ship are flowering size and will bloom in the first growing season.
Unlike Spring blooming bulbs that are shipped in the fall, Summer blooming bulbs do not require the winter months for proper rooting and flower development. In fact, they will bloom just fine when planted in the same season that they bloom and even prefer this schedule to ensure their hardiness during their first winter - In zones where they are winter hardy of course!
Speaking of hardiness, as a general rule of thumb most of the bulbs that we ship in the Spring are not hardy north of USDA zone 7. Often you can get around this by growing in containers and moving to a protected area during the winter or using a winter mulch that is removed in the Spring.
