bulbs are ANNUALS here?!?!
November will mark my first full year as an upstate SC resident. Since we live on a wooded lot, I have definitely been going through flower withdrawal (I used to live in zone 5a and had a massive flower garden). I was planning to compensate by ordering a ton of spring-flowering bulbs this fall, so at least I'd have one season of color. I was reading online, though, that because of the warm winters, bulbs should be viewed as annuals. You just don't get repeat blooms because the winters aren't cold enough. Is this true?
