Are Rhizome, Bulbs, Tubers, Bulbs All Considered Same Category Of A Flowering Plant?

New to attempting to succeed in having as much color as long as possible in all seasons, I need to get warm fuzzies to lift my heart by seeing them bloom. All help appreciated.I live in zone 8b( by one single site I reviewed.) but I’m zone 8-9 in south central coast California, about 20 miles from actual coast but get the sundowners and coast coolness and moisture most nights. Trying to do my best with not having much extra finance to support my new hobby. Retired from a southern state to the most expensive, for family, so I need all the advice to propagate and select best choices for my love of flowering plants outdoors . Of course I’m in to shrubs, roses and other small fruit trees. Sorry to go on, but been here almost five years, am not cultivating many friends, I’m such a southerner. CA I’m out of my zone. So I’m cultivating my garden and love of dogs. Wow, I’ll shut up now.

Though there are some similarities, no, they are not in the same category. Plants with rhizomes would be a category on their own, as would bulb plants, and tubers.

It will be important to know, and research the exact plants that you plan to cultivate, since all plants have their own care requirements. There are many ways to start, but I think that reading will help.

Here are some articles to help get you started: [1]
