Brodiaea Queen Fabiola flowers in late spring early summer . Bulbs , corms and tubers provide enormous potential for adding colour , form , and often fragrance to the garden . One of their primary characteristics is that they bloom for one season only , there after lying dormant and unseen .With careful planning , this feature can be exploited to extend or enhance interest in a range of planting schemes . Most bulbs bloom in early spring or summer , providing a succession of colour before the summer flowering shrubs and perennials reach their peak . With the exception of species native to damp meadows and woodlands all bulbs flower best in well drained soil in full sun or partial shade . Many bulbs thrive beneath deciduous trees or shrubs , where it would be difficult or impossible to establish larger flowering plants . Some woodland bulbs such as snowdrops , bluebells and winter aconites prefer a cool , shaded site with slightly moist conditions when dormant . There are several reasons for growing bulbs in containers . For purely decorative purposes , growing them in ornamental pots , window boxes or other containers provides an added dimension to a garden design . It is important to match the size and vigour of the bulb to the scale of the pot . Use the smaller bulbs in window boxes and , for best results , plant them in layers beneath other plants to make the most effective use of space . As a general rule , the planting depth of dry bulbs is determined by their size . In open ground , most need to be covered with soil to about 2-3 times the bulb’s height (deeper in light than heavy soil) . Dry bulbs at bulbs4u come available from mid August to the end of August . Brodiaea Queen Fabiola has intense blue flowers in late spring .
