Landscaping & Nursery Information for Home Gardeners


Corms are swollen underground stem tissue. The basal plate is located on the bottom of the corm; roots develop from this plate.

Cormels are the small corms that are produced to the side of the corm each year. Cormels usually take two to three (2 to 3) years to develop.

Examples include:

Crocus Erythronium Freesia Gladiolus Tritonia
