Very short tulips
One of my tulip varieties is blooming on very short stems. Others close by are growing to normal height and just beginning to blossom, but these have opened up a good week and a half earlier than the others, but short. The only difference I can see is that the shorties are in the front edge of the bed, otherwise same.
They are still very pretty, orange tulips, and right behind my purple grape hyacinths so I am not complaining necessarily, but I do question.
