When I first started gardening, I could never remember the difference between daffodils and tulips. From the above two photos, you can easily see the difference. Tulips have pointed leaves, daffodils have rounded leaves. My tulips also have a red shade to the leaves.
HyacinthAbove is an emerging Hyacinth. The leaves stay tight and wrapped like this until they get pretty high out of the ground. Once out, the fragrance is amazing!
IrisThe best way to identify an emerging Iris is to look at the fan shape of the leaves.
AlliumsProbably one of my favorite bulbs that I wish would last longer. The larger alliums, like the one above, look like a pointed triangle when they first emerge. I have daffodils planted next to them, so the points of the allium make it easy to differentiate the two.
noticeable in the garden with their red arms sticking out of the ground. They are classified as either early, mid, or late varieties.
