red tulip bulbs bloomed purple???
I bought a box of 70 (or so) RED holland tulips at sam's last year. I planted them, and now they are just starting to bloom. All look very healthy- The only problem is they are all PURPLE. Dark purple tulips!!! They do not resemble the color red AT ALL. Does the soil acidity have any thing to do with the colors of tulips like with hydrangeas (sorry I'm not sure if I spelled that right). Did I do something wrong? Or, did they just accidently put purple tulip bulbs in the red tulip boxes???
