Tulips are spring-blooming perennials that grow from bulbs. Depending on the species, tulip plants are between 4 inches (10 cm) and 28 inches (71 cm) high. The tulip’s large flowers usually bloom on scapes with leaves in a rosette at ground level and a single flowering stalk arising from amongst the leaves. Most tulips produce only one flower per stem, but a few species bear multiple flowers. 

Tulip flowers come in a wide variety of colors, except pure blue (several tulips with “blue” in the name have a faint violet hue). At Andrea Crawford Flowers, we use tulips mostly in the spring when they are readily available, but we do have access to many “out of season” flowers throughout the year.
