Bulbs, Tubers, Rhizomes and Corms are collectively referred to as “bulbs” but there are major differences between them. They all serve the same purpose, and that is to store food as an energy reserve for the plant to use to complete its life cycle.
Bulbs also fall into either hardy and tender categories. Hardy bulbs such as tulips and daffodils can be planted in the fall for spring blooming and tender bulbs like dahlias, begonias and Gladiolas must be planted in the spring for summer blossoms and then dug up in the fall and stored in a cool dry place where they will not freeze.
