I love what I always call,"species tulips". I try to plant some different kind every year. I forget names of what I have planted but saw 2 or 3 in your pictures. I should write them down. This month I have planted Shakespeare and a red Kaufman-something type. They do very well in my Santa Fe, N.M. garden which does have cold winters, often snowy, and baking hot summers. Because they are shorter than the big, standard tulips, they hold up better to wind and late snow. Great article.
What about the critters? I have planted various tulips in previous years, only to get a very small result as the ones I planted have disappeared. In fact last year I even went to the extreme of covering the bed with chickren wire to ensure none would be dug up. Same disappointing result. There are no deer around here, but there are possums, squirrels, rats, mice, raccoons, stellars jay birds and crows.
Have you tried either Liquid Fence or Deer Off? Both work really well for me for the past several years.
I have seen deer prints and signs of other nibbling critters but they have not touched my flowers.
