We didn't plant them, the previous owner (and designer of our small house) did. He wasn't a gardener, at all, but his tulips have been lovely over the last springs. The colors coordinate with our house -- how nice is that!
This was last year's post about their appearance.
The tulip foliage looks great and robust so far --we'll see what the flowers are like this year.
This is what they looked like a couple of years ago.
