Species tulips: Let's not forget the little guys! Daffodils are the spring yellow besides forsythia everyone thinks of, but what about species tulips? These mini-tulips are tough, and while their better-known tall cousins may only bloom for a year or two, these grow to form colonies and return reliably year after year.In yellows, cultivars of Tulipa batalinii (Zones 4-9) are standouts. 'Bright Gem' is the easiest to find, and has the added cachet of powder blue foliage. 'Yellow Jewel' and 'Apricot Jewel' are two others. All bloom on short stems, 10 inches or less, pale yellow in April. Because these bulbs' parent hails from desert climes, another plus is their love of dry gardens with fast-draining soil and little summer water. Give these tulips full sun.

More gardening projects. What else to do now? There are many other planting choices, along with some essential projects to keep your garden going strong. Order bulbs. If you live in Northern California, don’t worry about planting spring-blooming bulbs just yet. No need to plant until mid-October at the earliest, early December at the latest. But you might want to order or shop for tulips, daffodils, freesias and other bulbs now while supplies are abundant. In mild Northern California, tulips need chilling in your refrigerator’s vegetable crisper for four to six weeks before planting.Prepare planting beds. The best thing you can do now is to get planting beds and planting holes ready for fall planting. As a rule, for beds of annuals and perennials, add 2 to 3 inches of organic matter and work it in to a depth of a foot or so. Start digging. If you’re planting good-size shrubs and trees, digging the planting hole won’t be easy after such a long, dry season. Moisten the area a day or two ahead: Dig a hole at least several inches deep and as wide as needed for the intended plant, and fill the starter hole with water several times that day. Let it soak in for a couple of days and dig again to the full depth when you plant.Give existing shrubs and trees a long drink. Check with a shovel or trowel. If you don’t find moisture within a few inches, irrigate with a soaker hose or a slowly running sprinkler — as long as the local water company and your conscience allow it. If historic patterns hold true, after the 2011–2012 dry spell, we may not get significant rain until January 2013. Keep your fingers crossed.More: Southern California Gardener's ChecklistMore guides to California gardening | Find your U.S. garden checklist

Crown Imperial Fritillaria imperallis The showiest member of the fritillaria family, the crown imperial is an exotic-looking plant that produces clusters of pendulous 4-inch orange, yellow or red blooms beneath a spiky crown of green leaves. Plant in groupings and conceal dying foliage with leafy companion plants, such as ornamental grasses, ferns and hostas. Deer-resistant, the crown imperial's leaves emit a skunklike odor when crushed. USDA zones: 3 to 8 Sun requirement: Full to partial shade Height: 2 to 4 feet Bloom time: April and May Planting tips: Plant quickly to prevent drying out. Tip the bulb or place on its side to keep water from pooling in the top indent.

Species tulips: Let's not forget the little guys! Daffodils are the spring yellow besides forsythia everyone thinks of, but what about species tulips? These mini-tulips are tough, and while their better-known tall cousins may only bloom for a year or two, these grow to form colonies and return reliably year after year. In yellows, cultivars of Tulipa batalinii (Zones 4-9) are standouts. 'Bright Gem' is the easiest to find, and has the added cachet of powder blue foliage. 'Yellow Jewel' and 'Apricot Jewel' are two others. All bloom on short stems, 10 inches or less, pale yellow in April. Because these bulbs' parent hails from desert climes, another plus is their love of dry gardens with fast-draining soil and little summer water. Give these tulips full sun.
