No Lynn you dont have fall blooming tulipa. I found this one on one of my external drive so I add it so now I am sure you will see it. Long work to sort and search for pictures when you do not post them right away.

That is TODAY. I like the seed pods. Pods from last spring. As you see some seeds are still inside and the pod seem to be interesting for a snail

Wonderful photos. I don't grow tulips but these are just lovely. Please refresh my memory ... do they stay in the ground year around or do the bulbs need to be dug and replanted. I should know this but my 'rememberer' is broken apparently. Smiling

Hello Tee. Thank you for your compliment.
As far as tulips are concerned it depends which king of soild you have; The main feature is to get a well drained spot and raised beds are good gor growing them. When we are aging it is more and more dificult to do huge works, even dig up some tulips and store them for the winter to plant them back beginning of autumn. I could make it shorter but I leave mine in ground unless I want to grow something in the spot they are. If you leave them in ground the only thing you have to do if tehy are in the right spot is to weed.
Do not hesitate to revert if you need more information. I would be glad to answer and do not mine repeating.
You can grow them in pots too. You can have a try with some inexpensive sold in the trade. They will gibe you as much pleasure than some very rare and delicate species.

Thank you for the information. My soil is mixed ... some of the areas are nice friable soil and others are clay that holds a lot of water when it rains. When I turn or dig my soil, I look for earthworms. When I don't see them I determine that the soil is probably too wet and heavy and I move to another location.

Question: if I put tulips in pots, can those pots stay outside in a protected location through the winter? We have snow and sometimes ice here with temps occasionally around 0º. If I stashed the pots somewhere and covered them, can I leave them as is?

Hello Tee
Tulips can stand ver low temperature as many of them are mountain plants. Clay is not an obtacke to grow tulips, even dam spts as they need also water to grow BUT you have to think about a good drainage, either putting little stone on the hole either mixing the ground with some sand. That way bulbs do not soak in the water, soaking damaging them . If you wish to grow them in pots take caly pots as they have a bettter drainage than plastic pots. Some stones at the bottom, some clay is OK and add some tomato fertilizer. As far as th drainage is good you can live your pots in the open air and snow is very good for almost all the plants. Just protect them is you have very heavy rains or winds which can damage the stems of the plants when growing.
As they need sun, full South is the best location to grow your tylips;; Have a try Tee and let me know the ones you wish to grow.

Yes Lynn, Tulipa saxatilis are the first to grow. I will do some more pictures for you tomorrow. The foliage is already very large. Many tulips are growing, Tulipa Little beauty has quite a tall foliage also already. I did pictures to show you but sorry did not had time to post.

Tulipa tubergiana 'Keukenhof', Tulipa Clusiana 'Tinjka', Tulipa 'Little beauty', Tulipa greigii hybrid

On the first pic on the left side you will notice many starts. The bulb of this tulip has not been digged up since 2006 and tulips are growing from the new bulbs

How exciting. That is going to be so beautiful when they bloom. Full of flowers.

I have a question for you Catherine. The Tulipa dasystemon, is it one that comes up later?
CLUSIANA

Lynn
Tulipa tarda, this bright white with a large yellow center botanical tulip should come up a bit later but generally growing as the same time than Kaufmanniana and Greigii tulips to bloom as early as the kaufmanniana but it depends also in planting depht, exposure.
CLUSIANA

One Kaufmanniana tulip had a bud before the first frost but never bloom, eaten by slugs but today I saw this little red bud of Tulipa cretica. A very tiny species. The outside of petals will become lighter when the tulip will fully bloom.

Is Tulipa dasystemon the same as Tulipa tarda? I have so much to learn about these little treasures. I am so glad you are here.

Good question Lynn. A specialist told me thy were the same but in fact they are not. Dasystemon and Tarda belong to the same type of tulips but Tarda is a yellow flower with sharper petals.
