Tulip
Tulipa sp.

A sure sign of spring is the bright color of Tulips. Blooming during the months of April and May, Tulips are available in a wide range of colors. Growing to a height of 8 to 24 inches, Tulips like to grow in areas of full sun to part shade. Tulips look best when planted in groups, rather than individually. The bulbs will multiply over time, so dividing of the bulbs will be necessary every few years as they will become crowed in their present location and the flower production will desrease. When the Tulip flower is spent, leave the foliage to die-back naturally; the bulb is supplied with nutrients through the foliage. It may take a few months for the foliage to completely die-back. For this reason, it is a good idea to plant tulips near plants that will grow to conceal the Tulip foliage - Ornamental Grass is a good choice.
