Will Parrot and Angelic Tulips Return?

melaroma(6)May 21, 2010

I have angelic and white parrot tulips that I absolutely love but I just learned that some tulips don't come back. Are these one of them? I planted them last fall and they are in my half shade garden. Thanks!

They will return for a few years if the soil is well drained. & not over-watered the rest of the year and the leaves are allowed to dry naturally.

Fertilize them when they break the ground next spring, and after bloom.

Cut the flowers off after they wilt and don't let them go to seed.
