Although most of my spring bloomers have buds yet, few bloomed.

Common one is grandiflora or rosea. Rain lilies flower after a rain, even if the rain happens to be in the February :)

Aquilegia does not have bulbs.

Columbine is a nice plant. It is being grown in Murree and sold in Lahore.The price Rs. 80 per plant was not a good value. I would rather plant Butter Cups. My butter cup seedlings have started to bloom.

Yes you are right. Although i bought the young plants from More green @20Rs very early.

Do post the pics of butter cups. I love the large showy flowers of buttercup.

Gazania

Buddleja Asiatica- Winter lilac. Honey fragrance fills the air with 100+ spikes. Too bad it flowers only once in a year. So Alousia virgata http://www.gardeningpakistan.com/viewto ... ?f=2&t=193 is better than this one guys.
