We bought these bulbs in Amsterdam in autumn 2005, and I planted them in 2 pots which, once they had buds, I stood outside the front door. They were amazing. About 60 cm tall, opening first with pale yellow flowers which then deepened to dark yellow with deep orange/red edges.
I left them outside in the pots through to the following year and so Spring 2007 they flowered again – slightly less spectacularly, but still really lovely colours and huge glowing flowers.
LindaMae's Tulip Care Instructions
If sowing directly, sow at a depth of approx. 3.9 inches (10.0 cm) and aim for a distance of at least 3.9 inches (10.0 cm) between Tulipa plants.
Tulipa normally grows to a mature height of 36.0 cm (that's 1.17 feet imperial) so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.
Your garden has partial sun light - Tulipa should be planted in a location that enjoys full sun.
Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (9) is not within the ideal known range for Tulipa. The recommended range is between Zone 3 and 8. You may have to reassess this planting for suitability in your garden.
