Bulbs are great for an allergy-friendly garden because they tend to have showy flowers. Master gardener Pam Geisel explains that "since non-showy flowers aren't attractive to bee pollinators, they've evolved to the barbed form in order to be wind pollinated and carried off into the air. Bulbs also bloom at a time when there's not a lot of background pollen in the air so your exposure level is a lot lower. Look for daffodils, tulips, snowdrops, calla lilies, dahlias, tuberous begonias, Asiatic lilies, hyacinths, and crocuses, among others." As a general rule, the bigger the bulb, the bigger the flower. Getting kids with allergies involved in choosing and planting bulbs is a great way for them to learn about fall gardening without triggering uncomfortable reactions in the spring.
