I found Deidre, my Viridiflora tulips. I posted about them a few weeks ago because I could not remember where I planted these green tulips.
This morning I found them. I remember now what I did. When I planted the tulips last fall, I opened all the packages of bulbs and mixed them together and then planted every single one in the new flower bed I made around the lamp post.
I think that was a mistake for Deidre. She is having a tough time competing with the other tulips. I should have planted these green tulips in their own group someplace where they could be viewed together and not have to compete with all the other tulips.
See how they are in the group? Not too showy.
Deidre just does not stand out like this tulip below.
Once these all the tulips finish blooming, I plan to pull them out of this bed and either compost them, or replant them someplace in the back yard and see if they come back next year. Anyone have any good success moving tulips like that?
