Another monocot family, not closely related to the Asparagales or Liliales, but containing some very interesting geophytes, is the Aroid Family, Araceae. For northern gardeners, the familiar "Jack in the Pulpit" is an example of a hardy aroid.
Other orders in the Monocotyledons include Bromeliales (the bromeliads), Poales (the grasses), Orchidales (orchids), and Zingiberales (gingers); and there are many more besides these. Plants of the genus Acorus, often included in the Arales (aroids), are though by some to represent the most primitive moncots in existence.
This site will emphasize the natural species of bulbous flowering plants, and some of their immediate hybrids. There are speciality societies for genus Lilium and its hybrids; for the daffodils; and for the garden irises and their hybrids.
Although many orchids have "pseudobulbs," we do not cover orchids; the American Orchid Society has a WWW site of its own, for those interested.
We have posted some of the phylogenetic trees based on DNA sequences.
Members of several internet plant groups are cooperating to develop databases of plants.
no longer sell bulbs, see: http://www.shieldsgardens.com/, but we can still swap if you want what we have to offer and have what we want: Desired Bulbs and Bulbs Offered.
