Description
These are the Triumphs, the ones that make up the largest group of Dutch tulips, and the mainstay of the cut flower trade. Their flower shape is the classic tulip form, and their rainbow colors are known for purity. Some even have a striking "shimmer" or sheen to the petals, especially in sunlight. They aren't as perennial in the garden as the Darwin Hybrids, but many people think the Triumphs have a classic beauty no other tulips can match. (And the fact that they're inexpensive doesn't hurt.)

        I have used these for some spring color in a butterfly garden. All the bulbs bloomed even after the worst winter in the north east.

            I had forgotten that some of them were supposed to have more than one color on the flower, so it was a pleasant surprise to return home from Easter and see them going gangbusters! Yellow and mixed colors are nice. A purple one is kinda short and funny-looking, but not bad for a mixed bag!

              Comments about American Meadows Triumph Tulip Bulbs Rainbow Mix:

              I planted these bulbs in two raised beds and along the front entrance to our home. For the first year we had red, purple, and yellow/red to bloom. The blooms lasted a long time and were beautiful as cut flowers. Unfortunately four bulbs became rotten and moldy after planting and didn't produce growth. Those were removed and thrown away. I would get it a try at the current discount price.

                Comments about American Meadows Triumph Tulip Bulbs Rainbow Mix:

                I bought these to give as a bridal shower favor for the guests attending my daughters bridal shower two years ago. I place two in a mini gift bag with some dried moss...included a note about how to plant them...and about "new beginnings...etc" They were a big hit. Many people have commented how nice it is to see them blooming in their gardens as a reminder of the day. My heart melts every time I glace at them bloominmg in my own garden.

                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.
