They go dormant in late fall, only emerging in June when the rains have picked up. Aren't they a wonderful surprise?

Thank you! I would really like to know if I can dig them out once they're done being such showstoppers. I want to have a couple pop up in different areas, but not sure if when dormant I can disturb the tuber/root. Not sure about watering, etc. please help. I am a very green, naive gardener. Just starting out. :)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Other Tropical Bulbs The bulbs listed above sure have a lot of presence in the garden, but if you're looking for something a little more down-to-earth, grow some of these smaller standouts. Blood lily (Haemanthus multiflorus, zones 8b to 11) is perfect for those who think they've seen it all. Just when you least expect it, June to be exact, you'll notice grapefruit-size fireworks going off in your garden when the blooms emerge on leafless stalks. The effect is magical. Rain lilies (Zephyranthes, Habranthus spp, zones 7 to 11) have a similar effect and bloom sporadically throughout the year with trumpet-shape flowers ranging from white to yellow and pink.Caladiums (Caladium bicolor, zones 9b to 11) are quite popular for their harlequin patterns of veins, dapples and spots in pink, green, red and white. To get more blooms, just gouge the growing point of the corms after digging them up.
