Force for winter décor or plant in protected planters where the ground won't freeze solid for fantastic color by your front entry, porch or patio! Mix among other spring bulbs or intersperse among larger perennials and shrubs without worrying about their roots crowding each other out.
Fall-planted bulbs should be planted in the fall 6 to 8 weeks before a hard freeze. Each bulb should be planted pointed end upward and at least 8 inches deep. The location should be mulched, well-drained and in full to partial sun. Parrot Tulips do not like wet soil so water only when planting if it gets very dry in the fall or during prolonged drought.
