Tulips for Warm Climates

It's true that Zones 9 and 10 are not prime locales for growing tulips, but there are some tulips that like it hot! We carry many wild tulips that don't need a cold period to flower and naturalize faithfully in southern states. Some are T. clusiana, T. saxatilis,T. sylvestris, T. clusiana chrysantha and T. bakeri "Lilac Wonder" .

Other tulips may also be grown in warm situations, but should be treated as annuals and given some special care. The trick is to give them a "cold treatment" for 8 to 10 weeks. This can be done quite easily by storing them in vented paper bags in a refrigerator. Remove any fruit from the refrigerator as ethylene gas given off by ripening fruit will kill the flower embryo inside the bulbs. Take them directly from the fridge to the planting site in November or early December. When choosing a site, avoid southern exposures and plant in areas that get morning sun or partial shade so your flowers will last longer. Plant 6 to 8 inches deep with a 2 inch layer of mulch to help retain moisture and keep bulbs cool.
