Jimmy is one of the brightest and most beautiful tulips around, with fluorescent-pink blooms that take on a shimmering gold-orange edge. The colorful show is even more spectacular when this Triumph tulip opens up and reveals its gorgeous yellow eye and contrasting black anthers.

Daffodil Bulbs Comparison

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.

        Shorter height very useful in gardens or for memorial plantings. Very neat foliage, not overwhelming and messy as on some tulips. Tulips flowers are very full and the color has to be seen - just beautiful!

          Comments about American Meadows Triumph Tulip Bulbs Jimmy:

          I planted these with daffodils and hyacinths but was concerned about actually seeing them before the deer chewed them off. I was rewarded with glorious blooms that came and went before the deer were aware of their presence apparently since none of them were chewed away. It was a beautiful sight.

            These tulip bulbs are lovely; however, they're not quite as vibrant as the photograph shows them to be. I'd try something else if you're looking for truly vibrant colors.

              You will not believe your eyes when these open. I went in the backyard and saw these had bloomed and was blown away by the huge blooms and vibrant color. I have never grown or cared about tulips, but I do now. If there is one tulip to have it's Jimmy. Of course, I wanted to take pics to send to my mother and the battery was dead in the camera, per Murphy's law.

                I planted these in the front beds of my special events and catering venue, a restored antebellum home. I have had more compliments and questions about these tulips than any others I have in the ground. The color is stunning, they have large, full cups. Absolutely gorgeous! I can't stay away from the tulip sales! I find myself ordering more and more each year!

                Q & A

                Plant With These:

                USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
