The tulip is a stalwart of the late-spring garden. There are hundreds to choose from, including traditional, single cup-shaped varieties, double-flowered cultivars and those with elegant, goblet-shaped flowers. Tulips grow best in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. However, they don’t always come back the following year and are therefore often best treated as annuals.
