Tulips and Wind

Posted by boyz UT (My Page) on

Hello! I live in a very, very windy area. In the Spring, the wind blows extremely hard it seems like at least half the time. Iam thinking about planting tulips this fall, but am not sure how they would do next Spring with all the wind.

I am just wondering if you gardeners could tell me your experience with wind and tulips. Are they going to look pretty ratty, or do they hold up well to wind? I don't want to waste my time, if they tend to be delicate. Thanks for any information you can provide!

RE: Tulips and Wind

The flowering stems of most tulips is quite strong and wind resistant. The flower itself is pretty strong until it has been open a few days and then is prone to falling apart in strong wind. Al
