Genus: Tulipa

In relatively mild climates that receive seasonal winter rain, bulbs including tulips can be ideal for bursts of spring color. Tulips bulbs which are typically planted in the fall come in a range of colors with single and double blossoms. Mixing a range of bulbs that bloom early to late extends the display. Planting behind a low border or under-planting with a ground cover can keep the bed looking tidy even as the tulip foliage browns after blooming.
