PLANNING GUIDE FOR TULIPS

Shopping for tulips can be overwhelming. There are so many beautiful choices that it's hard to know where to start.

We created this Planning Guide for Tulips as a handy visual reference, so you can see at a glance, the shape, height and bloom time for each type of tulip. To enjoy a long season of spring color, you'll want to plant several different types of tulips. Start with early-blooming Emperors, include some mid-season Triumphs, and end tulip season with single or double lates. For variety, sprinkle in a few of the other types -- and discover their unique charms.

On our tulip category page, you can sort our selection of more than 100 varieties of tulips by type and by color. To learn a bit more about each of the tulip types, read our article Tulips by Bloom Time. For a good primer on growing tulips, read All About Tulips.
