After blooms have faded, it’s ok to deadhead, but allow the leaves to die off naturally. The leaves are necessary to feed the bulb so it can survive the winter and grow new flowers next year.Position in a full sun location. Zone 3 to 8 are typically the USDA Hardiness Zones that are appropriate for this plant (although this can vary based on your microclimate). Ensure your soil has a ph of between 6.0 and 6.5 as Tulipa is a weakly acidic soil loving plant. Keep in mind when planting that Tulipa is thought of as hardy, so Tulipa will tend to go dormant or grow slowly over the winter months.

This tulip was just amazing in my garden last spring. Huge, primrose-yellow to cream, long-lasting, and fragrant. I’m giving it 4 stars because I don’t know how well it will repeat but we’ll see.
