Tulips are the most colorful of all spring flowers. They are also one of the easiest flowers you’ll ever grow. Just plant the bulbs in fall for blossoms the following spring. 

There are hundreds of beautiful tulips to choose from, in enough colors, shapes, sizes and bloom times to inspire every gardener’s creativity. Whether you plant them in groups of 10 or 1000, tulips always put on an impressive show.

My mother had a garden, and she would experiment with different growing methods. She grew these beautiful flowers that looked like tulips, but they weren’t really tulips. She called them con tulips. I loved my mother’s con tulips. Sometimes I would make a tea out of them, so I could taste my mother’s con tulips.
