        1. Oh yes! Double tulips that look like peonies, tulips with fringed petals, etc. Purists disapprove, of course. I have a few of these odd types, but most of my tulips are either the traditional type or species.


      1. My mom used to grow tulips and she told me that eventually they degrade and vanish. She used to add new ones to the old so her garden was always full. I’ve stayed with daffodils since they seem to come back year after year. 🙂
