Abstract

Thirty four hardy ornamental bulbous plant species were evaluated for their use in landscaping in district Srinagar of Kashmir valley, during 1995–2005, for various vegetative and floral characters (planting time, flowering time, plant height, bloom colour and mode of propagation) in order to formulate various planting plans for use in the landscape gardening. These plants produced a majestic display in the gardens from early spring until late fall. Various planting schemes and proper placement of these plants for the maximum effect in the landscape have been suggested for temperate conditions. Use of bulbous plants for problematic areas in the landscape has also been suggested.
