Description
Why wait? With these beauties in your garden, your tulip bloom season will be in full swing long before your neighbors. The famous Greigii Tulips are the largest group of modern hybrids that are very close to some of the wild species. This is one reason they're so dependably perennial.

Commonly called rockgarden tulips, these are the ones with big, full blooms on short stems, only about 12" tall. The foliage is dramatically striped, the flowers are particularly brilliant in color. Unlike other tulips, these open wide, almost like waterlilies. If you've never grown these, add them this year, and you'll be hooked. And since they're perennial, unlike most of the taller varieties, these beauties will be with you for years.'

          1/3 of these rotted out and did not come up in the spring, unfortunately.

          Comments about American Meadows Rockgarden Tulip Bulbs Munchkin Mix - Bag of 10:

          I planted them around the front of my landscaping (flower beds) for additional color. They were planted in late October and they came up with my daffodils first this spring. Great contrasting color! The only downside to them is the rabbits seem to love them as much as I do and I'm having a hard time keeping them from nipping off the beautiful flowers once they bloom.

            These tulips are a colorful addition to my rock garden, where nothing else is blooming in early spring. I followed the planting instruction, and then rewarded them with plant food after their initial blooming. This spring, they bloomed even more abundantly.

              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.
