These varieties are great for pots and containers as well as the border area of flower beds.

Available in a variation of colors and petal shapes, Double tulips can be egg shaped, fringed, or have the appearance of the always popular peony flower. Bloom times will vary from early to late season with a few in the middle as well. Tulip bulbs should be planted during the fall months so that they can flower in the spring.

These flowers do not require extensive sunlight and will bloom when planted in fully shaded areas. Tulips will typically produce a single flower per bulb, but some varieties will have multiple blooms.
