Dahlia: tubers are not available but right now you can find small plant of size AA flower. Visit Shaheen Nursery in Gulistan-e-Johr near Samama Shopping mall. Nurseries near Karachi University also have the small plants of Dahlia

Freesia, Gladiolus, Dutch Iris:you can get corms and rhizomes from seeds shops in Lahore & Islamabad via Pakistan Post e.g. Sunny View seeds, Pride seed store, Chanandin seeds, City Seeds, Awan garden

Ground Orchids & Louisiana iris: Available only as plants, Nurseries on Korangi Road. Visit Makkah nursery, Diamond Nursery and Sailors nursery.

Regarding yellow rainlilies, there is corner public ground near the Golden Nursery in Model Town, Lahore where there are thousands of yellow rain lilies in the grass field.

Louisiana Irises can be planted in the ground now but won't flower till Spring of 2015 (March).

Well Sir, it's been a while since i have visited that area. Hopefully i may visit that vicinity next week and shall inform. Once i used to have hundreds of yellow rain lilies but threw them away as the bloom time is very short (2-3 days) and size of the flower is very small.

Thank you,but take your time.No need of making a special trip for this purpose; check whenever happen to be around.
Does the plant/foliage also dry out? It could be then planted at a secluded place or appropriately located in the garden.

I wanted to ask about Dahlia. Is Dahlia perennial in Karachi? I do not know about the variety but the nursery man said that he brought it from Lahore and It is a single plant which gives three colored flowers. He said that in summer cut down all the foliage and put the bulb in the soil and bring it back in August and plant in a small pot containing lots of well Rotted manure.
