Are fancy tulips more difficult to grow?
I am thinking of order some of the fringed tulips or the more fancy ones like parrots or green ones. I have mixed luck with tulips. I planted 12 one year that I got from a local nursery and only about 6 came up. I do refrigerator in a separate refrigerator without fruit. I wonder if I should take a chance with something different. I think getting a large number of all the same tulips is boring. I like a mix, but often mail order won't let you just take one of each. I would hate to order 20 of the same tulip and have it fail. I live in San Francisco.
