Description
Blue is the rarest color in flowers, and this mix gets about as close to the richness of blue as you can get with tulips. Some purples, some reddish blooms, but the bluest of the blues, too--including the famous one with contrast-color white edges. Plant these bulbs with some whites and watch the floral fireworks.

I was very excited about purchasing these tulip bulbs. I thought that it was a great price for 50 bulbs. We planted them all in the fall. They were a good sized bulb and healthy looking. Our spring has really been up & down in upstate NY, so only a few have come up. From what I can see the color is really nice. I've only seen the one shade of purple though, not a variety. There are still a lot of them that have not sent up a flower yet, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

          Planted last fall as a mass color bast for my flower bed to welcome spring. I was expecting a variety of tulips in the blue family. The photo with the description on the website is not what bloomed. No blue, but about 95% were purple. They are nice, but not what I expected. If you want purple tulips that are very similar in shade, then I can recommend this mix.

            Comments about American Meadows Triumph Tulip Bulbs Blue Moon Mix:

            I was hoping for more of a variety of colors like the photo, but these are still pretty flowers. I've noticed that the colors of the solid tulips vary depending on the time of day and sunlight. I have noticed a little bit of blue in the edges, especially in photos I've taken.

                Comments about American Meadows Triumph Tulip Bulbs Blue Moon Mix:

                I planted some of the Triumph Tulips Blue Moon Mix in a few containers that I forced in the garage last winter and I was very pleased with the results. I gave a few containers as gifts and I keep a couple for myself to enjoy indoors. The rest of the bulbs I planted outside along with the existing 3-year-old variegated tulips and the result is amazing.

                      I was very excited about purchasing these tulip bulbs. I thought that it was a great price for 50 bulbs. We planted them all in the fall. They were a good sized bulb and healthy looking. Our spring has really been up & down in upstate NY, so only a few have come up. From what I can see the color is really nice. I've only seen the one shade of purple though, not a variety. There are still a lot of them that have not sent up a flower yet, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

                                  Very outstanding with all other colors. I was really surprised and thrilled when they bloomed.

                                    Great addition to my formerly red-orange-and-yellow tulip scheme. These blended beautifully with the colors we had and added a whole new dimension of color. Best garden ever!

                                          These tulips are easy to grow and were different than anything I planted before. They came up along the sidewalk where I planted them and had a long bloom span. I bought 50 and shared them with others, but will buy more for myself next year. They are maintenance free-which is perfect for me.

                                            These blue and purple flowers are a great contrast to the brighter reds and yellows of many spring flowers. The mix is well worth the price. The flowers are wonderful in a vase on the dinner table or outside in the garden. They work well planted with other tulip bulbs and are easy to grow. I used the bulb fertilizer sold here and I believe that helped the growing process. A good addition to any garden and good for any level gardener.

                                                I planted these bulbs in the fall and had forgotten about them until a few weeks ago when they bloomed in all their purple glory. They've been going strong for three weeks and the ones I've cut for indoor vases have been tenacious. I will definitely order more for next fall.

                                                    I love tulips for an easy, colorful, low maintenance addition to a garden. I especially appreciate them in groups, a line or a cluster can really draw the eye in a way very little else can, and this makes them a great tool for a landscaper. We used this batch along the front porch line of a house that was butter yellow with dark green trim. The blues and purples were really rich and dramatic against the yellow and created a lovely trim to the house. My only complaint was the were not all blue and purple! There were a couple of red ones and one pink mixed in...it was not the end of the world, but consistancy is nice.

                                                        These are pretty, and have bloomed very successfully, but I wanted to note that the color depicted in the photo is not what bloomed for me. There were NO blues, NO dark purples. All flowers were either med purple/hot pink, or they included a white fringe. Maybe I just got unlucky with my bag. Nonetheless, they are attractive and very healthy looking. Many have multiple buds. But apparently it's not reliable you'll get the "blue moon" palette.

                                                          Planted most and forced a few. Wish that I had forced more of these lovely colored bulbs. They have been blooming for about 3 weeks indoors far exceeding my expectations.

                                                          What is a "Quality Bulb," and Why Does Bulb Quality Matter?

                                                          Flower bulbs come in a wide variety of sizes. It is important to get the largest, best quality bulbs you can find. Larger bulbs help to ensure success, producing larger and stronger plants with more flowers.

                                                          Several flower bulbs are part of the onion family, and because of this I like to use Onions as a representation of how important bulb size is. Which of the onions on your shelf go bad first? The smallest ones! Larger onions are more resilient, taking longer to dry out/rot and can withstand swings in temperature better. Flower bulbs are the same. Larger bulbs will withstand disease, draught, large amounts of moisture, and colder temperatures significantly better than the smaller ones.

                                                          Here at American Meadows we are committed to providing you with the highest quality bulbs. This means we do everything we can to source the largest bulbs possible. Below is a comparison of bulbs purchased from three different retail stores:

                                                          Each of the glass tubes contains 20 Dutch Master Daffodils. Starting from the left, the first tube is what is sold here at American Meadows, the middle tube was purchased at a local “Home Supply” box store, and the third is another online retailer. The difference is easily noticeable.

                                                          The next picture is the same comparison, but with Tulip Bulbs:

                                                          Again, our bulbs are quite a bit larger than other retailers.

                                                          Other things to be aware of when it comes to bulb quality is making sure they are firm and without signs of external damage or cracking. Do your best to avoid bulbs that are already growing and have shoots or freshly grown roots. This is difficult when purchasing online, but if you are ordering through a reputable company, they should be checking for these things regularly.

                                                          Next time you are looking to buy bulbs, think about how much time you put into planning and planting your garden and then anxiously waiting for your flowers to grow and bloom. Don’t be disappointed after all that effort by planting sub-par bulbs. Buy the largest, firmest, disease free bulbs you can afford, and you will have the best possible results.
