Tulip flowers come in many varieties, colors and some bloom early spring, some mid-spring, some late spring. These also grow in varying heights. For month-long color, choose several bulbs of each variety. Some are naturalizing and will produce more bulbs as the years go by. Some varieties are grown as annuals and will need to be replanted every year.

These spring-blooming bulbs must be planted in the fall after the frost for spring color. Plant to a depth that is 3 times the size of the bulb.

These bulbs are enjoyed by deer and squirrels and so be sure to plant them deep and pack the soil. Some gardeners use chicken wire under the ground to deter various rodents.

After flowering the bulbs do not require watering, if they are watered through the summer it can limit their life span.

Non-hybridized species provide early sprring food for bees.
