Last year I purchased and planted a selection of tulip bulbs – Landscape Purple; Landscape Red; and Landscape Yellow.
Can you tell me to which variety they belong? Do they have a particular name?
Hello Jeffrey – in our Landscape packs we use varieties with very sturdy stems that bloom mid to late season that are either triumph and darwin types, the varieties can change from year to year.
If you would like to email us pictures of the blooms we can let you know which varieties you have.
