About Us

The Southern Bulb Company, comprised of Chris and his bride, Rebecca, (plus friends and family), seeks to recapture something that was once "lost" to the Southern gardener: bulbs that thrive in warm climates, many of which are heirloom and rare flower bulbs. Our focus is to provide bulbs that will do excellent for the warm-climate gardener!

Chris Wiesinger

Chris founded The Southern Bulb Company to share his finds with the world. Since the New York Times story of his life as a bulb collector and farmer, Chris has been known nationally as “The Bulb Hunter.” What started as a personal passion and college project at Texas A&M in College Station turned into a lifestyle and business. In addition to running his business, he has gained attention for his motivational, educational and entertaining speeches on the challenges of small business life and the passion of reclaiming heirloom flower bulbs that had once fallen out of fashion and off the market.
