I am amazed at the strength of tulips in the ground. For example, I had some very tall tulip bulbs which were planted in an area that was now going to become a path. I dug up the bulbs and planted them elsewhere, then laid a concrete path. Sometime the following year a tall red tulip had grown through the concrete and was in full bloom. How had it pushed its way through the concrete?
