I planted these last fall (2010), and this spring got beautiful pale apricot-pink blooms. Looking at the photos, I wonder if there are two different bulbs out there with the same name--mine looked like the paler, pinker pictures. Stems were taller on mine than on any in the photos, but they were in a semi-shade location. Note: I got mine from the Netherland Bulb Co via a local garden center.

My experience with this plant was quite satisfying except their color. Last spring when I first tried them I purchased a bag of 12 bulbs from the Home Depot and when they came up in the spring they were red and only about 15 inches tall. Also they flowered in early May when I planned for an earlier bloom for a design. I guess I might change this to a Positive if the new bulbs this year pull through.

My apricot beauties looked good their first spring, but they've been struggling ever since. Some have stopped coming up, and they living ones are a big scraggly.

I might have some petroleum in the soil where they were planted, so that could explain it.

In my area -- Northern Virginia -- this tulip blooms in mid-spring. Deer love tulips. I've managed to keep the deer away spraying with Liquid Fence.
