There very few communities in the Dallas/Fort Worth area that go through the effort and risk of planting tulip bulbs. They are treated as annuals here, which means we plant bulbs each year knowing it is very unlikely they will bloom more than once. Knowing too, the actual bloom time is very unpredictable. The risks to tulip bulbs include, but are not limited to, 1) many consecutive warm days during the winter months producing blooms too early in the year, 2) a late frost or snow killing buds before they bloom, 3) squirrels digging up bulbs for food, and 4) too much rain, causing bulbs to rot in the ground. If you have ever attended the “Dallas Blooms” event at the Dallas Arboretum, you will understand why the effort and risk is worthwhile. When you see a spectacular tulip display at Tucker Hill’s Founders Square this spring, you should know what a marvel it really is buy generic viagra nz.
