Plant Category: Bulb/Tuber/Rhizome etc.
These are herbaceous plants that arise from underground storage organs and are uniquely adapted for long term survival in specialized environments. Many popular "bulb" flowers are not produced from “true bulbs” but arise from other subterranean structures that fulfill the same function. Included here are plants that are true bulbs, corms, rhizomes and tubers. Also see our Bulb Page for more information.
