Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral Kell On Jan 1, 2010, Kell from Northern California, CA (Zone 9b) wrote:

In my warmer climate, these have to be precooled for at least 6 weeks before planting to put on a great show. Place in refrigerator crisper away from fruit whose ethylene gas may damage the inside of the bulb that flowers.

Store cool for a minimum of 6 weeks at 35 to 40 degrees up to a maximum of 14 weeks.

Sometimes thses will flower a second year if left inthe ground but often the flowers appear stunted and I have to see any bloom a 3rd year.

Positive Toxicodendron On Apr 25, 2005, Toxicodendron from Piedmont, MO (Zone 6a) wrote:

I bought the bulbs on clearance in December and the ground was frozen, so I potted them in containers and put them in an unheated shed for the winter. There are three colors (orangy-apricot, pink, and gold) on each bloom. The plants are pretty tall and the blooms fairly large compared to my other tulips, and they are among the latest to bloom.
