Well, much better than I had any right to hope. Since blooming my tulips have had three shots of pea sized hail that covered the ground, a torrential rain, two snowstorms and temps that fell to the mid-twenties.

Even the ones that look like goose necks above came back, stood upright and looked nice for a while longer.

Of course, now most of my tulips have gotten past their prime. But, I am pretty amazed to say they held up to the weather like real troopers.
