I'm stunned. Tulips WON'T bloom in San Fran?
I know I do not live in a hot weather paradise but the Bay Area's weather is usually conducive to growing almost anything. And I grow everything from annuals and shade loving begonias to dahlias and roses and tulips and daffodils.
But I just got a notification from Am Meadows that the tulips I ordered are not hardy in my zone (10) but are in Wash and Ore?
I always thought bulbs needed LESS water and more sun and apparently it is exactly the opposite with some tulips? I don't get it - why would any bulb want MORE water and LESS sun? (If they need more water, I can always supplement our 20"/year with the hose!)
So has anyone else experienced this that lives in a mild climate?
