Almost hidden amongst the giant world of flamboyant bulbs are some delightful tiny treasures. These are classified as "minor" bulbs. Some are true wildflowers while most are hybrid derivatives of wild species. Many carpet the late winter and early spring meadows of their native habitats with vivid patches of colour. A few more are summer or autumn-flowering.

Some minor bulbs are hardy enough to flower through the snow and freezing cold. Crocus, Snowdrop, Glory-of-the-Snow and Striped Squill are famous winter-bloomers. Ironically, these species cannot withstand the balmy humid and moist conditions found in milder subtropical climates or being overcrowded and shaded by competitive plantings. In dry and mild climates, bulbs native to the Mediterranean and South African regions are ideal choices.
