Tulips are one of the sure-tell signs that spring is well on its way. Usually blooming in March to April, tulips come in a variety of colors and shapes.
By most, tulips are considered a perennial flower, meaning that they come back every year. While this may not always be the case, depending on many factors, tulips are fairly low-maintenance. Plant them in the fall and without much further work, you should see beautiful, colorful blooms start peeking out in the spring.
How long do tulips stay in bloom?
Depending on the weather, tulips are generally in bloom for 1-2 weeks. They do best in an area that gives them full afternoon sun, so make sure to plan out the right location for them when planting the bulbs.
