How To Care For Tulips

Everyone loves tulips. Tulips are amazing plants. In Fall once the ground has started cooling the bulbs are ready to be planted. In Winter tulips need 13-15 weeks of cool weather to help establish roots and before the shoots will emerge. In Summer after blooming the leaves dry out sending the nutrients to the bulb. During dormancy, the flower forms in the bulb by late summer. And in Spring after cooling and once the sun starts warming the ground, the tulips know it's time to bloom.

Tulips are some of the first flowers as a sign of spring. Tulips are said to have different meanings based on flower color.

  • Red tulips - Love, Pasion

  • Pink tulips - Happiness, Confidence

  • Purple tulips - Royalty

  • Yellow tulips - Cheerful thoughts

  • Green tulips - Hopeful beginnings

  • Orange tulips - Friendship

  • Blue tulips - One of a kind

  • Black tulips - Power

a tulip doesn't strive to impress anyone. it doesn't struggle to be different than a rose. it doesn't have to. it is different. and there's room in the garden for every flower. - Marianne Williamson
