Bulbs are fascinating structures and are present on all continents other than Antarctica.  They grow in a variety of different environments including some of the harshest and wettest.

Iris bucharica

Only a few are commonly available in the trade but there are so many more unusual hardy and tender ones we can grow in our gardens, containers or as houseplants.  It can be a fun exercise sourcing  bulbs or seeds so let’s delve in to some of these unusual types.

Speaker Elaine Rude is a CRAGS and CHS member who instructs Master Gardener courses, gives talks and interviews on gardening topics, and runs Paintbrush Garden Design and Consulting in Calgary.

This talk will be preceded by CRAGS’ Annual General Meeting at 7:00pm, which will take 30 minutes or less. Members are encouraged to attend (virtually) to help keep our club’s affairs in order.

This is an online talk. CRAGS Members will receive an emailed invitation and an emailed reminder with the Zoom link. Non-members are welcome to register for the talk on Eventbrite or purchase a CRAGS membership.
