The many varieties of tulip provide a long season of bloom, with careful selection. Plant at least 12 bulbs of each variety for best effect. Tulip bulbs bruise easily but tolerate most well drained soils. They are more susceptible to rots in wet soil. Midseason to late flowers last longer in partial shade, otherwise plant in full sun.
The bulbs are planted in October at a depth of 6 inches, smaller bulbs are planted 4 inches deep. The bulbs are spaced 9 inches apart. Division is done when the foliage matures. After digging they can be stored until planting time in October.
