Growing Tips

  • Tulips tend to decline through the years and many gardeners renew plantings annually. They will last longer when they are planted more deeply as long as the soil is well-drained.
  • Tulips make great cut flowers, but be careful, they grow once the cut flowers are in water. Add a penny to the water in your vase to help prevent them from growing taller.
p>How to Grow

  • Flower bulbs also require watering after blooming, while the foliage is ripening. Water weekly if conditions are dry.
  • In spring after flowering, do not cut the foliage off; the foliage is part of the perennial growth cycle. Allow it to die back naturally.

Tulip, Shirley is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I really enjoyed these. They opened cream, then transformed to the lovely lavender. I planted them in average well drained soil and a southeast exposure.
